Cataloochee 12/15/2009

I got up to Cataloochee around 4 or so. The mountain was not busy at all and it looked
great overall. Went right in got my lift ticket and hit the mountain right away. Kind of surprised to see the quad was not up and running but the double was which went all the way to the top!!!! Triple was up as well as well as the moving carpet in the beginner area! Lower snowbird was looking a little rough in some areas, but short n sweet was awesome! Sides creeping in a little but that will be taken care of easily with a night of snowmaking! Overall no crowds… lots of snow… great time! And I got to see Tammy and talk to her, which is always a good thing!
