Ober Gatlinburg Ski Area’s New Slope will be called “Yeti’s Run.”  Ober took over 200 suggestions via Facebook and Email.  From these suggestions the executive committee chose 4 favorites and created a survey for our fans to vote.  Of 472 votes, here are the results:

Yeti’s Run 32.84%    

White Tail Run 29.03%    

Rattlesnake Ridge 23.31%    

Park Line  14.83%

For the upcoming 2014-2015 winter season the advanced rated slope will split off to the east from the top of the Black Lift, taking skiers and snowboarders down a 635 foot run that is 45 feet wide.  The new run adds more options as it reconnects skiers and riders with their choice of Mogul Ridge, Grizzly or Upper Bear Run.  This slope has 100% snowmaking capabilities and will be equipped with lights for night skiing and snowboarding.

“We are excited to offer a new slope to our guests.  This will be the first new slope Ober Gatlinburg has added since Mogul Ridge in 1987,” says Bruce Anders, Ober Gatlinburg’s President.  “This expansion of skiable acreage for advanced skiers will also allow more space for events.”
