Depending on where you live, you might have a lot of snow, or none at all. At Ober Gatlinburg, in January, you will find a winter wonderland for sure. When our family took ski lessons up there, the instructors told us the snow they make there will prepare you to ski on any terrain.
Some people think they must go to Utah or Colorado for some really good skiing, but Ober is excellent for all levels of skiers. The beginners can be on their slopes and the more advanced skiers can take the longer, higher slopes.
Don’t forget you can also ice skate at Ober Gatlinburg, year round. They also have snow tubing and other snow-related fun. Spending a day at Ober is just one of the many things to do in Gatlinburg in January.
