Winter in Gatlinburg may be our favorite time of year; tranquil nights with snow lightly falling on the ground, days where we can see our breath as we go about our daily business and sitting by a roaring fire during the coldest times.

It may be cold and snowing outside, but you’re all warm and cozy and tucked away for the night in your vacation home away from home!
Day 2: Winter Tour of the Smokies
The roads are clear, but the trees are laden with snow laying heavy on their branches and you can see the snow-capped mountain tops that surround you.

Offering a variety of tours led by guides that actually live here, you will learn more about Gatlinburg than you could imagine as you explore the scenic landscape!
Day 3: Hit the Slopes on Your Gatlinburg Winter Journey
Ober Gatlinburg is a ski area that while it doesn’t compare to Vail or Aspen in size or snootiness, offers a nice number of trails on which you and your family can have an exhilarating day of fun! Located at 1001 Parkway #2, it features 10 trails and 4 lifts and offers rentals and lessons as well!
Day 4: Go See Some Good ‘Ole Boys!
Fans of almost everybody’s favorite 70s show will get the reference and will want to visit Cooter’s Place, at 542 Parkway.

With a steep ascent, it is best attempted by experienced hikers only.
