Cataloochee Ski Area Opens

Time to hit the slopes! The Cataloochee Ski area opened Thursday. The cold weather these past several days allowed the snow guns to fire snow onto several slopes.

The general manager says six trails, two lifts, and one conveyor are now open. Skiers and snowboarders are taking advantage.

"Conditions are good.  There's not too many people out here. Hey, I'm hoping to have a good year and have a good long ski season and give a lot of people a good time out here skiing and sliding.  I mean, that's what I hope and if that works everything works," said general manager Chris Bates.

Bates also says they're building a new deck on the lodge this year. He says two or three new trails will be added within the next three years.

Lift tickets are $35 for adults, $25 for kids ages 5 to 12.
