NOTICE TO OUR GUESTS…please do not use your GPS or IPhone Map app to bring you to the ski area and DO NOT use any mapping that includes the words Scenic View Dr. This is incorrect and a mapping error that takes you up a dead end private road.
To get to the ski area, come through the town of Maggie Valley turn onto Fie Top Road (at Ghost Town in the Sky and across from Tube World) and continue up that road for 3 miles and then 1 mile across on Ski Lodge Road to the ski area. Do not turn off of Fie Top Road onto any other road other than Ski Lodge Road. Also, Tube World is located at the base of the mountain in the town of Maggie Valley and not at the ski area. They are situated on Soco Road across from Ghost Town.
Our rental shop in Maggie Valley, Cataloochee Ski & Sports, is open daily. Be sure to stop there for your discounted rentals and all accessories you might need prior to your day on the slopes.
Don’t forget if you have a current season pass to any other area, you can bring your pass to Cataloochee and receive $10 off your day’s lift ticket.
Google Maps Provide the Only Accurate Driving Directions to Ski Area!
After many years of directing Cataloochee skiers and snowboarders over sometimes impassable roads, Google Maps provides the only accurate driving directions to the ski area from your point of origin. Google Maps is the ONLY mapping service to provide accurate directions at the current time. Please remember to use this service when planning your trip to the area. GPS devices and other mapping services provide directions over a limited access, unmaintained dirt road.
End of Season Celebration! Final Day is Saturday, March 25th!
Posted on March 24, 2017
Beech Mountain Resort is open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily through Saturday, March 25th. Join us this Saturday to celebrate another great season! Enjoy a fun day of skiing and a cookout on the Lodge deck. The Beech Mountain Brewing Co. will be open 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Thursday through Saturday. It’s been an incredible season! Our success can only be attributed to the continued support of our customers.

The beer will be flowing and so will the fun! See you on the slopes!

CLOSED: For The Season
The Wolf Will be Closed tomorrow and for the Season. Unfortunately we just discovered this evening that our Quad Lift ( the main lift for the slopes ) was damaged by the electrical storm we had on Thursday morning. Though we were so excited about getting open tomorrow, just in time for the 5 days of snow being forecast for our area, the lift damage is too extensive for us to get repaired before next weekend. Therefore we have made the decision to go ahead and close the slopes for the season. Thank you again for your support and making the Wolf the Great slopes they are!!!
Ski Sapphire Valley is now closed for the 2016-2017 Season.
Due to Spring like weather and a forecast that does not provide for any snow-making opportunities for the next 10 days, the Ski Area is closed.
Thanks to everyone who visited as we had a great time! Plan to visit with us this spring, summer and fall!
Thank you to all the people who work hard to make skiing in NC as much fun as it is!
I love fall, when the ski movies start dropping.
