ober gatlinburg winter sports
Gatlinburg is home to Tennessee's only ski resort. Hop on the tram from downtown, or drive on up to Ober Gatlinburg for some big air.
From December through March, Ober Gatlinburg Ski Resort is alive with speed and color as skiers hit the slopes. Take the tramway for a scenic two-mile trek to the top of Mount Harrison right from downtown. No skis? No snowboard? No problem. Gatlinburg skiing equipment rentals are available in the rental shop. Beginners will want to try their first runs on the Ski School Slope and Cub Way. Intermediate skiers are invited to try the Ober Chute, Bear Run, Castle Run, and Alpine Run Trails. Advanced skiers will enjoy the challenges of Grizzly Trail and Mogul Ridge.
Ober Gatlinburg also features a 9-lane, 400-foot snow tubing park with a 50-foot vertical drop. Now tubing is even better than you remember it–and on a much bigger hill with its own Magic Carpet lift. This $1.5 million dollar facility is one of the finest in the south, with the capacity to host 150 visitors per session and 100 percent snowmaking coverage.
Another fun activity at Ober Gatlinburg is Ice Skating. The 140' X 75' indoor ice arena is the centerpiece of Ober enclosed Mall. The arena opens at 10am every morning and closes at 9:30pm. Rates start at $9.00 for a three hour session which includes skate rentals.
