I can almost hear the cheers at Ober Gatlinburg from my house 10 miles away. Last year the folks at Ober were fighting unseasonably warm temperatures which delayed the opening of the slopes. Maybe this first snow is a great sign of the blustery ski season ahead.
I’m snuggled in at my house with Christmas movies and hot chocolate, but enjoy these wintery pics taken just after sunrise. Maybe they will inspire you to come pay Gatlinburg a visit this winter.
The Smoky Mountain crowds die down in winter, and although you’ll need a four-wheel drive to get to more remote locations…the weather is crisp and inspiring. There are lots of great Winter Activities that don’t require a special vehicle, too.
