Ober Gatlinburg, the Smokies' Only Major Ski Area
If you enjoy downhill skiing and/or snowboarding, you'll love the gorgeous, machine-groomed trails at Ober Gatlinburg Ski Area and Amusement Park. Now through early/mid-March, up to 8 thrilling trails are open daily from morning to night (weather permitting). State-of-the-art snowmaking equipment creates a deep base of pure, pristine snow... and, of course, Mother Nature lends a gracious helping hand!

What's more, skiing is just the beginning. Ober Gatlinburg also offers:
You'll find the entrance to Ober Gatlinburg at 1001 Parkway in downtown Gatlinburg, where you can board the aerial tram for the ride to the slopes and amusements.
Alpine Coasters, the Latest Rage

You control the speed of the ride, so you can customize your thrill level. Perfect for kids and grownups who hesitate to ride a traditional coaster.
You'll find alpine coasters at several convenient locations, including Gatlinburg Mountain Coaster (306 Parkway, Gatlinburg), Smoky Mountain Alpine Coaster (867 Wears Valley Road, Pigeon Forge), and The Coaster at Goats on the Roof (1341 Wears Valley Road, Pigeon Forge).
