ober gatlinburg in the winter

Thinking about planning a winter getaway to the Great Smoky Mountains and Gatlinburg? If so, make sure you leave some time for snow tubing at Ober Gatlinburg! Here are 5 reasons why it’s an experience that you don’t want to miss!

A Great Way to Experience Winter

However, if you’re visiting from an area that never receives snow, then it’s a must! Adults and children will all enjoy the thrill of sliding down the snow-covered hills as well as the beautiful views of the Great Smoky Mountains from Ober Gatlinburg. The next time you’re in town and there’s snow on the slopes, bundle up, take a ride on Ober’s Aerial Tramway and experience winter Smokies style!

Easy and Fun For Everyone

Snow tubing is easy and fun for everyone! Ages 3 and up are permitted to participate and it’s recommended that you purchase tickets online before arriving. Everything else is ready for you! You also have no reason to worry about exhausting yourself by climbing to the top of the hill time after time. Just hop on Ober’s outdoor escalator, the “Magic Carpet”, and it will take you and your tube back to the top so you ride back down again!

The Perfect Activity for a Day of Family Fun

Families with children ages 3 and above will find that snow tubing and spending a day at Ober Gatlinburg is a perfect activity for a day of family fun and making memories! Too often during our hectic lives that are filled with work and school there isn’t enough time for parents and children to have fun together. That’s what vacations to the Smokies are for, to make up for the lost days and to create moments that will be remembered for years to come.

Childhood Joy and Memories

Plus even the most serious and disciplined adult will find themselves filled with the warmth of childhood joy as they slide down one of Ober’s four 250’ lanes of snow! The next time you’re in the Smokies, take a little time to just simply be a kid again!

It’s Just One of the Many Wonderful Adventures Waiting For You at Ober Gatlinburg!

Snow tubing is just one of the many fun activities that await guests at Ober! You’ll also find the opportunity to go ice skating, skiing and snowboarding. The little ones can play in the Cubbies Snow Zone or ride the carousel. Guests also have access to 7 different dining spots and a list of events throughout the season. Ober offers year-round fun, but winter is by far the most magical of all!

This is just a few of the great reasons to add snow tubing to your Gatlinburg itinerary this winter! However, even before getting online to purchase your snow tubing tickets, you need to find the perfect place to stay!
