If you’ve never been to or even heard of Wilderness Wildlife Week here’s a little info about what we’ve got planned for 2011…
This year Wilderness Wildlife Week has added lots of new classes and workshops to their list for 2011! Of these great new classes include photo exhibits, hands on photography sessions and a chance to tape your favorite Pigeon Forge memory. There is a very extensive list of fun, educational and interesting classes and workshops planned for the 21st anniversary of Wilderness Wildlife Week! Remember, all the events happening during Wilderness Wildlife Week are FREE! If you’ve never been, start planning your trip today and see why Wilderness Wildlife Week has been a Southeast Tourism Society “Top 20 Event in the Southeast” 10 times now. We hope you can join in on this week of fun in the Smokies! Be sure to check out the full list of workshops and the scheduled hikes.
East Tennessee doesn’t get too much snow, so it’s a pretty big deal when there’s talk of a white Christmas. This year, it wasn’t all talk, we ended up seeing a lot of snow all across East Tennessee! Most, if not all of Sevier County had snow on the ground. There was around 2 inches around most parts of Pigeon Forge and Sevierville. Gatlinburg and the National Park saw a little more. The Sugarlands Visitor Center reported 2 – 3 inches of snow and 3 – 5 inches in the mountains. Not only was the snow on the ground Christmas morning, but kept coming down all weekend! There was steady snowfall throughout Christmas day, night and throughout the day on Sunday. The totals for the entire weekend are as follows: Sevierville, 4 inches, Gatlinburg and Sugarlands Visitor Center, 6 inches, Cades Cove, 8 inches and Mount LeConte, 12 inches.
We were very lucky to have a white Christmas in Pigeon Forge and Sevier County. The weekend snow was a fun and festive addition to the Sevier County area’s holiday weekend! We hope you were safe and warm wherever you may have been this Christmas weekend.
