If you are into skiing or snowboarding you will not be disappointed. Ober Gatlinburg Ski Resort and Amusement Park was voted one of the top 10 favorite family destinations in the United States.

If you do not ski, you can still enjoy the cold weather in a luxury cabin. Some cabins include an outdoor fire pit where you can snuggle up outdoors and roast hog dogs or make smores. Other winter activities include snowmobiling and hiking. There is even an indoor ice skating rink that you can enjoy whatever time of year you visit the Great Smoky Mountains.
