Imagine that you're rocketing down a 400-foot snow-covered slope, lying flat on your back in a canvas-covered tube. It's called snow tubing, Smoky Mountains style, and it's the newest reason to make the trip to Ober Gatlinburg for an unforgettable adventure this winter. Ober Gatlinburg has opened its new ten-lane snow tubing park and is drawing crowds of snow tubing enthusiasts.
Even better than you remember when you were a kid and on a much bigger hill with its own Magic Carpet lift back to the top of the hill, this $1.5 million dollar facility is one of the finest in the south, with the capacity to host several hundred visitors per session and 100 percent snowmaking coverage adding to the experience. The park is lit for nighttime fun and just one more reason to visit the Smokies this winter.
