Downhill racing season heats up at Cataloochee

The ski racing season kicked off at Cataloochee Ski Area last week. More than 200 skiers and snowboarders from middle schools and high schools across the region competed for the best downhill times during the inaugural week of racing.

Here’s the racing line-up:

• Adult Cataloochee Challenge Cup Series: Thursdays at 7 p.m.

• Recreational Race Series: Sundays at 1 p.m.

• Middle school: Tuesdays at 7 p.m.

• High school: Wednesdays at 7 p.m.
