A Change Of Seasons At Ober Gatlinburg

Year Round Fun at Ober Gatlinburg
On Mt. Harrison, the winter snows have melted into spring runoff and the temperatures have begun warming up to somewhere near balmy, depending on the day. But even though the frozen stuff is gone for the season, that doesn’t mean there’s nothing to do at Ober Gatlinburg Ski Resort. In fact, spring and summer mean fun for everybody in the family, not just those who know their way around a downhill slope. There's plenty of year round fun with indoor attractions and outdoor activities for everyone.
Just as in winter, the fun starts with a journey from downtown Gatlinburg to the mountaintop on the Aerial Tramway that offers a spectacular bird’s-eye views of the Smokies. You can see even higher sights at the resort when you go for a ride on Ober’s scenic chairlift. Afterwards, you might want to head back downhill on the 1,800-foot-long alpine slide.
You’ll also discover an outdoor maze, wildlife encounter, kiddie rides, a water slide, raft ride, mini golf, arcade and more. You can even still get a taste of winter inside the resort on the ice skating rink, which lets you get your glide on all year long.
Note, however, that you’ve only got about one more week to enjoy the fun at Ober Gatlinburg before they start their annual preventive maintenance period, which runs April 23 through May 3. During that time, all resort activities will be closed. When planning your travel to the area, be sure to check our own available dates for our cabin rentals in Gatlinburg, TN.
