GATLINBURG, TN - The weather has turned in favor of Tennessee Skiers and Snowboarders! Ober Gatlinburg has opened its 2021/22 Ski Season.

Ober Gatlinburg snowmakers have been busy this past week and will continue to make snow whenever temperatures allow. New automated snowmaking technology allows snowmakers to adjust water and air pressure remotely on several snow guns to optimize snowmaking output. For those who are interested in learning to ski or snowboard, the Magic Carpet conveyor lift on the Ski School slope is one of Ober Gatlinburg’s latest additions, which helps to ease new participants into Snow Sports.

Ober Gatlinburg, in partnership with #F1rstChair Project, will be giving away a free custom BlackStrap Single Layer Tube face covering to the first 50 skiers/boarders in line at the lift on Opening Day.

For the most up-to-date information, please check the slope report on Ober Gatlinburg’s website
