Race the slopes
A recreational racing program will offer skiers and snowboarders of all abilities the chance to push their speed with weekly competitions on non-holiday Saturdays through the end of the season at Cataloochee Ski Area in Maggie Valley.
The program aims to be fun for all ages and abilities through a handicap system that allows racers nationwide to compare themselves to each other, regardless of when and where they race. Races run 9 to 11 a.m. and are subject to weather and slope conditions.
Cost is $10 for two runs or $20 for an unlimited pass, with a lift ticket or season pass required to participate. Register at the tickets center, and pre-register with NASTAR — the racing program that Cataloochee goes through — at www.nastar.com.
