Reservations required at Cataloochee
Cataloochee Ski Area is operating on a reservation-only system due to high demand and COVID-19 protocols.
Guests must book lift tickets and rentals online, and some days are sold out. Once a given day is sold out online, Cataloochee will not accept walk-up guests.
Tickets may be purchased up to two weeks in advance, and the lift ticket time starts when it is first scanned at the lift, not at the time of purchase. Lessons are available. Face coverings are required in lines, buildings, or when social distancing is not possible, and guests who decline to wear a face covering will be asked to leave.
