Little is known about Viking Mountain ski area which operated in the early 1970’s in Greenville, Tennessee. The area was believed to have been serviced by rope tows. Viking Mountain is also known as Camp Creek Bald and is one of the highest mountains in eastern Tennessee at over 4,844 feet above sea level.
Viking Mountain now serves hunters, mountain, bikers, hikers, and has an abundant bear population.
Update: 11/16/2010: Brad Moretz just called and related an interesting story. He shared, "Dad (Grady Moretz) sold Viking one of our Headco snowguns and we heard a little later that when they were putting it on the ski hill that they didn't secure it properly and the story goes on that the thing started rolling down the hill, picking up speed as it went and the darn thing rolled all the way down the slope and right into the lodge at the bottom."
