Leave your spectacular Gatlinburg cabin or Pigeon Forge cabin for the day and transcend to Ober Gatlinburg. Offering one of Gatlinburg’s trademark attractions, Ober Gatlinburg is an experience you’ll always remember and can enjoy year-round. From the moment you begin your ascent on America’s Largest Aerial Tramway, to the black bears playfully rolling around, to the child-sized “Kiddie Land”, to the outrageously fun Velcro Wall, Trampoline, and Bungee Run. Ober Gatlinburg features “no swimwear necessary” water slides, a touch of winter year-round with an indoor ice skating arena, and the popular combo of the scenic chairlift ride up the mountain and alpine slide down the mountain on 1800 feet of tracks!

America’s Largest Aerial Tramway departs regularly from downtown Gatlinburg going directly to the ski resort! The two 120-passenger, counter-balanced cars provide an experience for all ages, from the young to the young at heart.

In the winter months of December through March, Ober Gatlinburg turns into a wonderland of snow and skis. The Smoky Mountains provide Ober with 8 ski trails that challenge skiers of all skill levels and offer 35 inches of snowfall annually.
