If you heard the end of my last episode of the GoSmoky.com Internet Radio Show (http://www.blogtalkradio.com/gosmoky/2010/01/12/smoky-mountain-author-j-greg-johnson-joins-us-on-t) you may have heard me mention that I am planning another trip to the Smokies in a couple of weeks. Well, I’m working out some details, and I thought I’d share them with you, my readers.
Last year, we did our first of what I’m planning to make annual ski trips to the Smokies on the GoSmoky.com Internet Talk Show and Blog.
This year, I plan to take many more photos, as well as some videos to post on our youtube page. (www.youtube.com/gosmoky) Right now, the only thing on the page is a short video from Laurel Falls (great way to take a 30 second “vacation:)
Due to the I-40 Rock Slide, and possible winter weather, this year we will not be able to ski in Gatlinburg and Maggie Valley. We’ve decided to ski for 2 days at the Cataloochee Ski Area (www.cataloochee.com.)
We will also be staying in Maggie Valley at the Holiday Motel (www.holidaymotel.net.) I’m excited about our stay there. We chose their motel because they are ranked number 1 in TripAdvisor.com’s Maggie Valley section (http://www.tripadvisor.com/Hotels-g49313-Maggie_Valley_North_Carolina-Hotels.html.)
We’ll be in the area from Jan. 28-31st. I’ll get lots of photos and at least a couple of additional videos posted to the site when we get back.
I’m also planning another episode of the GoSmoky.com Internet Talk Show on the area. I’ll post details on that once I have the show planned.
***This year’s trip is brought to you by Cataloochee Ski Area (www.cataloochee.com) and the Holiday Motel (www.holidaymotel.net.) Check out their sites to see why this is going to be a fantastic trip!***
