You will be able to go race down the slopes and have a blast with family and friends. If you’ve never been skiing or snowboarding before, Ober Gatlinburg has lessons you can attend to learn more before you head out on the slopes. Plus, you can rent ski and snowboard equipment instead of having to bring your own.

Snow Tubing

Another way to have snow fun at Ober is to go snow tubing! Snow tubing starts in November and usually ends in March. This is a fun activity for people of all ages. You will grab an inner tube, then head to the “Magic Carpet” that transports you to the top of the hill. Then, you’ll pick a lane and slide down the hill on your inner tube! You must be at least 6 years old and 42 inches tall to ride by yourself, but no one under the age of 3 is allowed to ride the tubes.

You may be wondering how you can tube, ski, or snowboard if there’s no snow in the forecast. Ober Gatlinburg has its own snow machines! They create lots of snow so people can still enjoy these winter activities even when there’s no snow on the ground in the rest of the Smoky Mountains.

Ice Skating
