Oh what fun it is to ride on a snow tube all the way! Hey! That’s right, it’s snow tubing time at Ober Gatlinburg Ski Area! And it’s SnowMagic fun for everyone! Utilizing an advanced technology called SnowMagic, Ober Gatlinburg kicked off snow tubing season early on November 19, 2016!
When we say snow tubing is fun for everyone, we mean everyone! Ages 3 and up can experience this fun winter recreational activity! Ages 3-5 must ride with an adult; children age 6 and up must be at least 42″ tall to ride alone.
Ober Gatlinburg’s professionally designed snow tubing area offers guests a custom tubing experience. There’s no trudging up the hill; Ober’s “Magic Carpet” surface lift escalator quickly takes you back up to the snowy hills of joy!
Tubing sessions are 90 minutes and tickets are $25 per person. Advance Tickets are available online this year at Ober Gatlinburg Snow Tubing. Same Day Tickets, if available, are only sold in person at Ober Gatlinburg’s ticket offices in the Tramway Mall on the downtown Parkway or on the mountain at the Snow Tubing Ticket Office. Same day tickets are not available online.
Tubing tickets are limited each session and tend to sell out in advance during holidays and weekends, so purchase your tickets early. Also note that due to the popularity of snow tubing there can possibly be long delays with parking on the mountain or arriving by the tram. Please call Ober Gatlinburg at 865-436-5423 or advice on arrival times.
