families learn their skiing skills on special beginner slopes with their own
chairlift. Then, they graduate to more difficult intermediate slopes like
“Lower Omigosh” and the “Rock Island Run.” Finally, they advance to
5,400-foot Moody Top, with its 740’ vertical drop, while experienced
snowboarders can hone their skills in the “Cat Cage” terrain park. The Rock
Island Line quad lift opens more of the mountain to intermediate skiers than
ever before. Together the slopes of Cataloochee present some of the most
welcoming and challenging terrain in the Southeast.
