Ski and stay. And give your budget a winter break, too.
When winter comes to these mountains, can winter fun be far behind? And could there be a more perfect place than Cataloochee Ranch to relax and recharge for another day on the slopes? A winter hike on a mountain trail, a warming glass of wine by the fireplace, a cozy room or cabin to call your own – they're all part of the winter experience at the Ranch. And, with our lower rates for winter, there's never been a better time to enjoy them all.
To make a simple winter pleasure even simpler, we offer Ski & Stay packages which include marathon lift tickets, ski or snowboard rentals, and a group lesson at Cataloochee Ski Area for just $80 per person – a savings of $50 per person, per day. You can make all your arrangements directly with us and pay for everything, including additional ski days, in one place on a daily basis. And the Ranch is the most convenient location to the Ski Area, which is less than a mile away.
Things couldn't be much simpler than that. And your winter getaway couldn't be much better.
You can pay a virtual visit to the Ski Area with this online video.
