Yesterday evening we wrote about the roller coaster-like changes that you can see in conditions at the ski areas of the Southeast at this time in March. Well we’re back on the good side of the ride again for a while at least today.
Before we dive into the resort tour this morning, we want to mention that we have the Beech Mountain Parkway Cam back! Hey it’s better late than never. The cam was fine but there was some connectivity problems that the electricians finally got to on Friday and it’s now showing some awesome views again! We have a NEW Hwy 105 camera going in this week AND a new camera being installed at Smoketree Lodge sometime this week. More views than ever!
Cataloochee is skiing day 113 of the 2005-2006 ski season today. Tammy Brown, the popular Marketing Director there wrote us, “Sunday will be pretty good as we are skiing from the top again today and that makes is 100 days that Cataloochee has been skiing from the top this season! Today is also day 113 of the ski season for us and it’s been a very blessed year for us, even in light of marginal temps.”
Some of the Cat Crew will be enjoying Cataloochee’s 8 open trails and 4 lifts on Saturday. They are open for DAY SKIING ONLY TODAY.
Tammy added, “We’re confident we’ll be skiing through the 26th with what we have now and we’re committed to make snow up through March 24th!”
You HAVE to love the season that Cataloochee has had. There’s snowmaking temps in the forecast this week so expect Spring Conditions today and more skiing through the week ahead at The Cat!
Tammy did tell us to expect some thin coverage and a few bare spots but there’s plenty of good terrain to ski and ride on Saturday!
Quit reading this report and go SKI!
