Winter Attractions

People from all over the country come to Gatlinburg, Tennessee for the winter season! If you’re an avid hiker, or lover of all things mountainous, you are in the right place! Great Smoky Mountains National Park is the most visited park in the system and you can see why. The Smoky Mountains are home to Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge, Tennessee that offers a wide variety of attractions! Here are a few of our suggestions:

Ober Gatlinburg (skiing, tubing, snowboarding, ice skating and more!)

Dinner Shows! (Dixie Stampede, Hatfield and McCoy’s, Lumberjack Feud, etc.)

Hot Tub Time (Our Gatlinburg cabins have hot tubs for your enjoyment. . . Don’t miss out!)

Winter Trolley Ride (See the spectacular holiday lights!)

Smoky Mountain Moonshine Tastings (Free of charge, a way to stay warm and embrace the Smoky Mountain way of life!)


Hiking, of course! If you are brave enough to take to the trails, it’s a must see. The experience you have in the wintertime on the trails is unlike any other season! While the mountains may not be green with flowers in full bloom, it is a special sight to see. The Smoky Mountains are covered with snow and the area has a subtle beauty to it. Dress warmly and map your route! During the winter you will experience views and nature that are unique to the season. Check the trail guides for closures prior to your hike.

Supporting the Economy

After the Gatlinburg wildfires, the best way to help our community is by visiting the area! Our local economy took a hit after the devastating wildfires swept through Gatlinburg and the surrounding areas. As the town looks to rebuild, the community pushes on. A major reason to visit the Smokies this year would be to show your support. Help our local community by planning vacations and enjoying the attractions!

Winter Views

As we said before, the winter season offers breathtaking views and scenery! Don’t miss out this year! Luckily, if you aren’t a hiker, we know a few places where beautiful views can be found. View our Gatlinburg cabins here to find the best winter views from the comfort of your own cabin!
