Out of the Pigeon Forge Cabins and Into the Wild!

We know, Pigeon Forge Cabins can be so comforting that sometimes it can be difficult to leave them. Nothing is as tempting as another hot cup of cocoa while taking a dip in the hot tub, after all. However, if you take one look out the window of your cabin in Pigeon Forge, you can’t help but hear the call of the wild. Ober Gatlinburg has a host of winter activities, all of which provide all the fun and excitement you can ever hope for in the winter.

Brave the Slopes on Your Skis or Your Snowboard

If you’re visiting Ober Gatlinburg between the months of December and March, chances are that the snow conditions will be ripe for skiing or snowboarding. The area has several options when it comes to finding the right slope for you. If you’re still an amateur when it comes to winter sports, it’s advised that you choose a slope with a decently comforting angle. However, if you’re looking for more of an extreme experience, the terrain park will offer you all the gravity defying flips and jumps that you can possibly look for. If you left your winter sporting equipment at home, don’t worry, as whole sets of equipment are available to rent.

Tubing and Ice Skating

If gliding down a snowy slope on a tube is your thing, then you can enjoy the winter-only snow tubing hill, open daily through March 26, 2017. Or, you might be more partial to ice skating, in which case the year-round indoor rink is the place for you.

Head Back to Your Cabin in Pigeon Forge for an Apres Ski
The apres ski, in which you relax in the cabin and enjoy a hot drink and welcoming warmth, might just be your favorite part of Ober Gatlinburg. Whether you spent the day doing high-octane winter activities or if you’ve been enjoying your resort experience all day long, you deserve some down-time in your cabin at the end of the day.
