The decision was made Sunday, Feb. 25. For the remainder of the season, slopes will be open 9 a.m. through 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday and 8:30 a.m. through 4:30 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. Tube World is closed for the season.
Cataloochee hopes to sustain daily operations for as long as possible but might have to close certain days if the warm weather continues. However, if cold weather returns for at least a few days, the ski area does plan to resume snowmaking. As of Monday, Feb. 26, three trails and two lifts were open with a snow base of 10 to 30 inches.
