We had a ball ice skating. The slopes looked great - we had 6 inches of fresh snow but we didn't have hats or gloves with us which was disappointing. We will be better prepared next time.

My family went this past weekend and enjoyed our day very much. Everyone had fun ice skating and snow tubing. We enjoyed a pizza and drinks from the restaurant inside and it was very good to our delight. Everything was kept nice and clean. The only negative is that the stores inside seem a little dated. Next time we are... More

We really enjoyed skiing/snowboarding here. I have been skiing in Colorado before but it's been so long! We both took the ski/snowboarding classes and this is a MUST if you've never been before or like in my case, it's been many years. It's important to take, please spend the extra $20 for your safety and the safety of the others... More

If you haven't been to ski resorts in the Rockies, you will be fine with Ober Gatlinburg. The $8 parking fee upon arrival is a turn off, but the resort has a lot to offer once inside. Again, if you've been to other high country resorts in Colorado, Wyoming, or even Vermont you may be really let down by going... More

This review is for the park itself, also reviewed the tramway... which was a terrible experience. Be sure to check it out. My wife and children really enjoyed learning how to ski, I skipped that part. We all liked tubing. Ice skating was also fun. Food was reasonably priced and tasty. A little crowded when trying to pickup rental equipment... More

There is little chance that you would get bored up here on the mountain. You can do anything from arcades, to Ice skate, to skiing and snowboarding. The rental prices for the slopes are a little high and it is designed for more experienced skiers, and unless it is snowing its more ice than snow but it is fun to... More

I visited Ober Gatlinburg with a group. It was the first time skiing for many of us. Keith was our ski instructor. He was good. It was a great experience. Our biggest regret is that we didn't start earlier in the day. It took almost 3 hours to get clothes and skiis on after doing the paperwork. Now we know... More

The freezing weather had many things in town messed up. Even the arial tram was broken for most of the day. The road up the mountain finally opened around 1200 and we drove up for our tubing session at 11am. The people were very accommodating and to my knowledge everyone that had paid for tubing sessions were allowed to tube... More
