UPDATE: I’ve had a guy asking me to update this page. Cataloochee.com is where this story came from. They had the breaking news below on their website. Now it says they ended up NOT opening due to warm temperatures. You can see that from the link provided below, but I wanted to update here as well so it wouldn’t be so confusing.
Check out the webcam at Cataloochee ski area in Maggie Valley. Snow cannon is blasting the snow right now. They plan to open for the season today. A copy of their “breaking news” on the opening is below…
Well…the weather is here and we know you’re all beautiful and we hope to see each of you on Monday! You heard it right, we began making snow for the 2009/2010 snowsports season on Sunday, October 18 at 6:45am and with a weather forecast for lows in the 20’s for tonight, Cataloochee plans on making snow as long as temperatures permit on Beginners Easy Way and Beginners Rabbit Hill and plans to kick off the 2009/2010 season at 1pm on Monday, October 19.

***We skied at Cataloochee last winter, and stayed at www.smokymountaintower.com while we were there. It was a blast, and we hope to do it again this year.***
