There are so many great events coming up that you will want to go ahead and book your luxury cabin rental to prepare for all of the fun times ahead. Not sure when to come?

Scion Snow Tour: Ever wanted to ride with pro snowboarders? This is your chance! Grab your gear and head to OberGatlinburg for a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Held on January 28 from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m., you can meet your favorite snowboarders, dance to a live DJ and have the chance to win thousands of dollars worth of prizes. Kick it with your friends and family at the after-party which will be held at the Smoky Mountain Brewery.
Tennessee Winter Special Olympics: Each year the town of Gatlinburg is honored to host the annual winter Special Olympics Games. Held at OberGatlinburg from January 29 to 31, you do not need a special invitation to cheer on the athletes. Watch these amazing athletes tackle a variety of winter sports including ice skating, skiing and snowboarding.
Titanic Museum: While this museum is open all year long, there is a lot going on during the winter months. Take in an ice carving competition, sign up for a chance to win a trip to Ireland or even sign up for a vow renewal ceremony anytime during February. Located just a short drive from your cabin, this Pigeon Forge museum is a must-see stop on your trip to Gatlinburg.
Sevierville Winterfest: Just like in Gatlinburg, TN, neighboring Sevierville offers locals and visitors alike the chance to take in fun winter activities. Take in live music while you shop, enjoy a cup of hot cocoa, sign up for a hayride or just spend all day shopping. Since it is a quick drive from the Elk Springs Resort, it is easy to fit in a trip to Sevierville while you are staying in the Great Smoky Mountains.
Great Smoky Mountains National Park: If you love the outdoors and aren’t afraid of some snow, the GSMNP is just hte place for you. Park offices are open all year long offering visitors just like you a chance to explore the park whenever you want. Most park offices are staffed by rangers and park personnel from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. during the winter, so be sure to visit during those hours if you have any questions. Visit the Oconaluftee center to learn about the Native American culture in the Great Smoky Mountains, the Sugarlands Visitor Center to watch a short movie about the park or the Cades Cove Visitor center to see an actual water mill in action.
Premier property owners select Elk Springs Resort as their Gatlinburg Rental Property Manager. Of course, nothing beats staying inside and cuddling up to a warm fire, a mug of hot cocoa and classic movies on TV. Whatever puts a smile on your face this winter, we hope you will find some time to visit us at the Elk Springs Resort.
