Full review

Catahooche is a charming little ski resort that’s worth a visit if you live in the southeast and need a fix. The backdrop of the mountain is stunning as it’s nestled right next to the Smoky Mountain National Park, and surrounded by many 6k foot peeks. The town of Maggie Valley is also really charming with many local motels and restaurants to make for a good overnight or weekend trip. There snow making is top notch as they were 100% open early season when many other SE mountains weren’t even 50%. The crowds here can swamp this small resort with only ~75 acres of terrain as many folks come from nearby Asheville, Gatlinburg, and Greenville.
