There is a path for every level of rider, from easy slopes ideal for beginners to technical descents for specialists. "Ober Chute," the longest and most thrilling run, is slightly under a mile long and descends more than 500 feet. Don't have your own ski equipment? No problem! Ober Gatlinburg offers convenient rental services right at the lodge.
A large indoor ice-skating rink that is open all year round can be found in the center of Ober's Mall if skiing or snowboarding aren't your thing. For those wishing to have some chilly fun, renting ice skates is an excellent alternative. Try the snow tubing as well!
