Thousands of visitors flock to our little mountain town every year for fun cold-weather activities, and Gatlinburg definitely doesn’t disappoint. One of the main attractions is Ober Gatlinburg, a veritable playground offering one of the most activity-packed ski resorts in the Southeast. Ober is known for the plethora of attractions that make it a one-stop shop great for skiers and non-skiers alike. Our Gatlinburg cabins make the perfect home away from home for your next winter adventure.
Ober Gatlinburg has a little something for everyone in your family and there’s an array of ticket options to best fit your particular skiing needs. Ober offers single-session passes, with lower-priced twilight and night sessions, as well as junior and senior discounts. If you’re going to be in the area for a while, you might want to grab a 2 or 3-day pass. Along with your ski rental, you can also rent jackets, helmets and pants for everyone in your family. There are also ski classes for the adults as well as the kids, or you can splurge on a private lesson.
The ski lift soars over the mountains, giving you some of the best views available in our little town. Climb off the lift and explore all that Ober offers, including snowboarding, snow tubing, a mall and restaurants. The lift also takes you to the top of the Alpine Slide, which zigzags through the beautiful wooded area. The kids will have a blast hitting the carousel, the arcade, the maze and Kiddie Land, a series of tunnels and bridges. If you want to swap your skis for skates, Ober also has an indoors ice skating rink on the premises. A great way to cap off your Ober visit is the Wildlife Encounter, home to a variety of animals including otters, bobcats, birds of prey and the main attraction, a family of black bears.
Some of our rentals are less than a mile away, making them the perfect resting stop after a full day at Ober. Take Ski View for example. This condo offers all of the comforts of home, plus the amenities of a hotel rolled into one. Your family will enjoy the benefits of cooking some meals in-house, relaxing in the large living room or on the back deck with its amazing view, or enjoying the resort amenities such as their indoor pool, hot tub and game room.
If a condo doesn’t sound like your relaxing spot then one of our private and equally amenity-filled cabins might be your cup of tea. Mountain View is one of our Gatlinburg cabins that is close to the ski resort but far enough away that you’ll feel as if you’re in a different world. You will enjoy the game room, hot tub, whirlpool tub, full kitchen, and spacious living areas, all in your own private oasis.
Perhaps one of the best things about Ober is its location right in the midst of downtown Gatlinburg. After an exciting day of skiing, step out of the aerial tram and onto the Strip and spend the rest of the day meandering through the charming streets that make up the downtown area. Your vacation isn’t complete without great accommodations so make sure you search for Gatlinburg Cabin rentals near Ober that offer you all of the amenities you and your family wish for. There’s nothing better than cozying up to a fire or soaking in the hot tub at your cabin, surrounded by the beautiful scenery that makes the Great Smoky Mountains so memorable.
