119 Ranch Drive
The wonders of winter.
When winter comes to these mountains, can skiing be far behind? And could there be a more perfect place than the Ranch to relax and recharge for another day on the slopes? A hearty dinner, a warming glass of wine by the fireplace, a cozy room or cabin to call your own – they're all part of a seamless ski experience that also includes lift tickets, ski and snowboard rentals, group lessons, and free shuttle service to and from the Cataloochee Ski Area, located less than a mile from the Ranch.
With this special luxury ski package, you make all your arrangements directly with us and pay for everything, including additional ski days and discounted private lessons, in one place. The process couldn't be much simpler than that. And life couldn't be much better.
When it's cold outside, there's no warmer place than the Ranch.
A blazing fire in the fireplace. Continental breakfast and family-style dinners. A long soak in the Jacuzzi after a long day on the slopes. Could winter get any warmer?
