Labor Day Snow Play
August 30 - September 2
It’s Snowing in the Summer at Ober Gatlinburg!
This year’s Labor Day Weekend weather forecast is calling for snow at Ober Gatlinburg! Ober Gatlinburg is turning on their Snowm@gic Snow System and cooling everybody off for Labor Day Snow Play. The holiday weekend event will be held from Friday, August 30 through Monday, September 2, 2019.
Friday and Monday: 10 AM – 7 PM
Saturday and Sunday: 10 AM – 9 PM
Snow Play will take place at the bottom of Ober’s Tubing Park and admission into the snow area is free for all ages. Come to Ober Gatlinburg and make snowmen and snow castles and play in mounds of snow as we bid farewell to summer and welcome the cooler temperatures of Fall.
On Saturday, August 31, singer/guitarist Nygel Bounds will also be playing a free concert from 1:00 – 5:00 PM near the designated Snow Play area.
Ober Gatlinburg’s Tubing Hill is serviced by a refrigerated snow making system called Snow Magic, which can produce snow at above freezing temperatures. Unlike the traditional ski slope snowmaking system (wide coverage and air temperature dependent), the Snow Magic machines put out an already frozen “shaved/powderized ice” which looks, feels and behaves just like other snow. This means the snow conditions can be “controlled” to a point, which allows Ober Gatlinburg to host a fun snow-filled summer event and also open Snow Tubing at a consistent date of the Saturday before Thanksgiving every year.
All of Ober Gatlinburg’s Summer Activities are in full swing including the NEW Summer Tubing, Ski Mountain Coaster, Alpine Slide, Wildlife Encounter, Scenic Chairlift, Water Raft Rides, Amaze’n Maze, Mini-Golf, Rock Wall, Chair Swing and Kiddie Land and Kiddie Rides outside as well as the Ice Bumper Cars, Ice Skating, Carousel, Shopping and Dining inside.
