Ober Gatlinburg is the only ski resort in the state of Tennessee! When you stay at Chalet Village, you will be minutes away from this popular attraction, as our cabin community is located on the same mountain as the ski area. To help you prepare for your getaway in the Smokies, Chalet Village has put together a list of the top five advantages of vacationing at our cabins near Ober Gatlinburg.
1. More Time on the Slopes, Less Time Getting There
It takes most people at least an hour or two to drive from their hometown to Gatlinburg. After this initial journey, you probably don’t want to spend even more time sitting in the car. As any parent can tell you, this is especially true for young vacationers! Guests at Chalet Village will have a very short commute to Ober Gatlinburg, so they can spend more time on the slopes and less time getting there.
2. Take Advantage of Multi-Day Tickets
Staying at our cabins near Ober Gatlinburg is ideal for visitors who plan on returning to the ski area throughout their vacation. Ober allows guests to save money with two-day and three-day lift tickets, so you can enjoy the slopes again and again for one low price.
3. Snow Tubing Begins in November
While the skiing and snowboarding season usually starts around mid-December, vacationers will be able to go snow tubing in mid-November! Snow tubing is always a huge hit with kids, and can be enjoyed by anyone age 6 and older (children ages 3 – 5 can ride with an adult). Guests won’t even have to walk back up the hill, because Ober’s “magic carpet” will bring you right to the top.
