  • Located near Gatlinburg, Tennessee, Ober

    Gatlinburg is the only ski resort in the state. It is

    more than just a ski resort, however. It is a complete

    family vacation spot with an amusement park, indoor

    ice skating, a bungee tower, an alpine slide, and

    many other activities and attractions - there is

    something to please everyone.

    With an elevation of 3301 feet, and a vertical drop of

    600 feet, Ober Gatlinburg features eight trails: two

    beginner trails, four intermediate trails, and two

    advanced trails. There are three lifts, including two

    quad lifts, one double lift, and one surface lift. The

    season runs from the middle of December through

    early March, and night skiing is allowed on all trails

    except the Grizzly trail.

    Rentals are available for both ski equipment and

    snowboarding equipment. Private and group lessons

    for skiing and snowboarding are also available

    through the Smokey Mountain Snow Sport School.

    You can also easily find food at the many snack

    bars, food carts, the café, the restaurant, or in the


    You must not miss the longest chair lift ride in the

    south! You will see awesome views of the Great

    Smoky Mountains. You will also get a bird's eye

    view of some of the slopes, and you can have your

    picture taken on top of the mountain. If you don't Only in Tennessee a great Ski Resort

    ski, don't worry! You can ride back down the

    mountain on the chair lift as well. Don't forget the

    Tramway. The tramway departs from downtown

    Gatlinburg and takes you to the ski resort and the

    amusement park.

    Even if you don't ski, you can still explore the thrill

    of flying down a mountain at a high speed - or a

    slow speed if you choose. This is possible with the

    Alpine Slide. The slide is approximately 1800 feet

    long, and takes you down a winding wooded slope.

    You have total control over your speed with the

    use of a braking device on each sled. Other

    attractions at the amusement park include the

    Black Bear Habitat, a bungee jump, a water race,

    go karts, indoor ice skating, kiddie land, an arcade,

    miniature golf, a Spider Web Velcro Wall Jump,

    water rides, and a shooting range.

    No matter what type of fun or adventure you are

    seeking, there is something to satisfy everyone in

    the family at Ober Gatlinburg Ski Resort and

    Amusement Park. This is definitely a trip worth taking

    - especially if you have younger kids or senior

    citizens traveling with you.
