Ski area to offer after-school program

Written by 

Cataloochee Ski Area is offering after-school programs for elementary, middle and high school kids to learn to ski or snowboard this winter.

The five-week course includes a two-hour clinic once a week from 5 to 7 p.m. Elementary school kids can chose from either Wednesday or Friday, with middle school offered on Thursdays.

When it turns cold, it’s tough getting the kids outside to get the exercise they need, but the after-school skiing program helps kids learn new physical and mental skills, get fit, and socialize safely in a controlled environment. The program is designed specifically for young people, who learn differently than adults.

A special learn-to-ski program is now being offered for parents whose kids are in the after-school program.

The cost is $99 for the five-week course and includes instruction and equipment. Cost is less for season pass holders with their own equipment. The ski area has scholarships for low-income families.

For the schedule of dates, Contact Sue Reitze, After School Program Coordinator
Cataloochee Ski and Snowboard School, at 828.926.0285.

This Must Be the Place

  • This must be the place

    art theplaceIt’s not only a time capsule, but also a window into the future.

    With guitars in-hand, The DuPont Brothers are two men, two voices that become a singular melodic force. The Vermont-based siblings are quite possibly the finest acoustic duo out there today, nationally or internationally. Their mesmerizing sound and pure intent perpetuates a long line of powerhouse harmonic acts, bringing names like Simon & Garfunkel and Seals & Crofts to mind.
