Winter Fun for Daredevils and Novices

Ski lift in snowy mountains

Not an avid skier or extreme snowboarder? Set aside an afternoon or the whole day for a trip to Ober Gatlinburg where you’ll quickly discover fun winter activities suitable for all age groups and individuals at every skill level. Ober Gatlinburg is every resident’s favorite mountaintop destination and ground zero for all things fun. Relax the back with a hot toddy or cup of freshly brewed hot cocoa in The Loft Lounge. Before you know it you’re feeling confident for snow tubing and ice skating.


Advanced snowmaking technology likes to pitch in when Mother Nature is a no-show, and there’s ten ski trails in all. Getting to Ober Gatlinburg from Zoder’s Inn is too easy when you park in downtown Gatlinburg and let the two-mile Aerial Tramway haul you to the top. There’s plenty of shopping to do when you’re tuckered out, including the delightfully entertaining toys of Obear’s Playhouse. It’s likely you’ll bump into Obear himself while he’s waist-deep in a toy chest!
