Winter Fun in the Great Smoky Mountains

There's nothing better than wintertime in the Great Smoky Mountains! Relatively mild temperatures make the colder season far more bearable than in other parts of the country, but you'll still see the tops of the mountains capped with snow throughout most of the season. If you're a winter activities enthusiast and are looking for the perfect winter getaway, look no further. The Ramada at Pigeon Forge is the quintessential destination for your winter wonderland vacation. Our great rates, cozy rooms, and close proximity to the Great Smoky Mountains and the many attractions that lie within it simply cannot be beat.


Not even a half hour down the Parkway, you'll find Ober Gatlinburg. One of the best winter sport parks in the area, Ober Gatlinburg has it all. Skiing and snowboarding for every tier and skill level spread across 9 different trails will satisfy even the most dedicated of skiers.


For family fun, you can zip down the mountain at blindingly fast speeds in a snow tube at their special snow tube park! Snow tubing lanes reach up to 400 feet and are exciting and safe. If you've got extra little ones with you, the Cubbies Snow Zone is a great part of Ober dedicated solely to tikes of the extra small variety. They can play in the snow and discover the wonders of winter fun in this safe and enclosed area.


Ober is open from mid-December through sometime in March, season depending. Be sure to check their schedule and enjoy all the winter fun that's waiting for you! We hope you enjoy your stay here at the Ramada.
