SO, WHEN IS SKI SEASON?  On average, we OPEN the slopes in EARLY TO MID DECEMBER and CLOSE in EARLY TO MID MARCH.  Exact opening and closing dates for the ski slopes are determined by Mother Nature … Never the same dates from one ski season to the next … and usually not predictable until just days in advance.

COMMENTS  

As of Monday Feb 19th, skiing and snowboarding at Ober Gatlinburg are closed for the 17-18 season.  Several factors brought us to this decision.  With the recent stint of incessant rain (7″ since Feb. 1), paired with the sustained unseasonably warm temperatures, AND no snow making temperatures in sight, our slopes cannot maintain much longer.  We have had a wonderful season that came on earlier than usual (Dec 9) and allowed us to be 100% open for all of January & into February!  WE THANK YOU for all your support through this season, and we are already counting down to the next.

There are many other activities on the mountain, including our new Ski Mountain Coaster, scenic chairlift and indoor ice skating,  just to name a few.  Add in some great shopping and dining, and you’ve got a full day of fun at Ober Gatlinburg.
