Cataloochee Will Close for Season at 4:30pm, Sunday, March 6

Due to the continued unseasonably warm temperatures, Cataloochee Ski Area will close for the 2010/2011 season after 100 days of skiing and riding at the end of the skiing day on Sunday, March 6.

Chris Bates, Cataloochee General Manager states, "Today the decision has been made to close for our 50th season after the day skiing session on Sunday March 6, 2011. This is four months to the day from when we opened on November 6, 2010, and after 100 days of operation. While this decision has been difficult, we have had a successful season and prefer to finish with good conditions.

We will be having our annual one day season pass sale on March 6, and season passes will be at their best price of the year. Because we will be closing on Sunday we will offer a mid-week single day ticket for next season to anyone who purchases a pass on Sunday. Thank you for your business this season, we look forward to seeing you in November."

So…from our Cataloochee family to each of you…THANK YOU for making it a great season for all of us and remember….the 2011/12 season is just around the corner!
