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.

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.
