Okay cool I'll definitely have to check it out. I think App (Appalachian Ski Mountain) might be a little farther for you. They are both fairly equal distances for me I think. Just to let you know, from what I here, App is pretty awesome for park compared to other NC places. They actually have 3 parks. One of which is a Burton Progression park. It's basically a Burton built/sponsored beginner park that's really cool for someone like me just starting out learning freestyle.

Yea 5400ft, I didn't pay attention to the number I just knew NC runs were short hah.

GameCocks11 UHGGG I'm sooo Jealous! I totally wanted to go this weekend but couldn't. I've never been to Cat. Actually I've really only been to App (My first season was last season as well). How is Cat usually, compared to App let's say?

Expecting cold enough temps later this week so hopefully that means more snow making and they will open again. My friends and I are def going to whoever is open this weekend hah. It's a long, but totally worth it, ride from Charleston, SC.
