Are you coming in to town┬áfor the Special Olympics? It isn’t too late to rent a luxury cabin rental from Elk Springs Resort to house your family, including your star athlete! Each year the friendly folks at the Special Olympics Tennessee branch hold the Winter Games at Ober Gatlinburg. This year the events will be held from January 20 to February 1 and we are looking forward to seeing all of those smiling faces pass through Gatlinburg in 2011.
Whether there are three or thirteen people in your family there is a cabin that can fit everyone. There is no reason why you should all be crammed into a hotel room when you can turn your Special Olympics weekend into a special getaway for everyone to enjoy. Since we are conveniently located just a short drive away from Ober Gatlinburg you can spend all day playing in the snow and come back to your warm and cozy cabin at night. Spend the evenings in front of the fireplace listening to how much fun your athlete(s) are having – there is plenty of room to bring friends over that they are sure to make over the weekend!
Even if you are not in town for the Special Olympics you can still go and root on the athletes. They will be performing in three main events – alpine skiing, alpine snowboarding and speed skating – and would love to hear your cheers from the sidelines. Look for the Special Olympics flame that will be lit on Monday morning on top of Ober Gatlinburg and stick around for the awards ceremony that begins at 2 p.m. on Tuesday.
No matter what your reason for visiting Gatlinburg this winter, Elk Springs Resort Gatlinburg Cabins┬áwill have a cabin ready and waiting for your family to enjoy. Good luck to all of the athletes participating in this year’s Special Olympics, we will be rooting for you!
