Safety First: Our Tips for Staying Safe and Warm this Winter


SPIRIT OF THE MOUNTAINS.jpgAt Diamond Mountain Rentals, we want our guests to feel safe and comfortable during their stay. Our top priority is ensuring our clients feel right at home in our Gatlinburg cabins. With winter approaching, we find it necessary to share our tips for staying safe and warm. Whether you are hitting the trails or staying inside, we have you covered! Let’s take a look at how you can best enjoy your stay in one of our Gatlinburg, TN cabins.

Tip #1: Pack Warm Clothes!

Don’t underestimate that mountain air! During the winter months, it gets quite chilly in the Smoky Mountains, especially during the mornings and evenings. Before heading to one of our Gatlinburg cabins, pack your warm jackets, socks, gloves and hats! Bring a few extra sweaters and jackets--you never know how the mountain air will be!

Tip #2: Dress Warmly! (Layer up!)

This is a very important tip for our guests. If you are visiting during the winter months and plan to explore the mountains by foot, it is crucial that you dress warmly. The higher the elevation, the cooler it will get! Dress in layers and be sure to keep your hands, ears and feet warm at all times. You don’t want to get started into your hike and wish you had brought warmer gear!

Tip #3: Wear Shoes with Traction

The mountains tend to be snowy and icy during the winter months; wear shoes with traction! You don’t want to hurt yourself on the trails due to improper footwear. Pack appropriate hiking boots and materials to ensure your safety. Hiking during the winter season can be truly magical!

Tip #4: Check the Road Conditions

If you’re driving, always check the road conditions prior to traveling. If snow has fallen or is predicted during your stay, be sure to stay on top of the road conditions. The safety of our guests is our first priority! Feel free to call our office if you have any questions about the weather or road conditions.

Book your stay with us today and experience the Smoky Mountains this winter! And remember, safety first!
