Ober Gatlinburg begins making snow for the slopes as soon as the temperature drops and are carefully monitored and groomed with state of the art snow-grooming equipment. This helps keep the surface smooth and consistent and lets you enjoy your run that much more! Ober Gatlinburg ski resort also boats the only ice skating in Gatlinburg.
