Cataloochee surprised me! They had good snow cover (man made of course), great beinner area, lift lines were moving, and everyone I chatted with on the lifts was really nice! I think the total vertical elvation was about 700 feet, which gave a nice run top to bottom. Almost forgot, they also had a well groomed park, I am proud to say I hit a few rails and a couple of the jump (which is a big deal, since I am old).
All and all we had a great day out on the snow! Looking forward to going back!
