If you could be sitting here with me right now, you would see soft fluffy now drifting down from the sky. It is beautiful the way that the mountains look covered in a fine dusting of snow. While the winter has been fairly warm so far, the folks here in Gatlinburg are gearing up for a winter full of skiing, snowboarding, ice skating and so much more. If you are ready to embrace your inner snow bunny then it is time to book a luxury cabin rental at the Elk Springs Resort.

Gatlinburg features a variety of fun winter activities that can be enjoyed by kids and adults alike. Just a short drive away from your cabin is OberGatlinburg, the crown jewel of winter sports in the Great Smoky Mountains. The folks at OberGatlinburg spend all year waiting for the first snow to arrive. Of course, they always have their snow-making machines in place for warmer months like we have been experiencing recently. With nine trails to choose from, you can easily spend all weekend enjoying everything that OberGatlinburg has to offer.

Just getting to Ober is a ton of fun. You will need to ride the skylift all the way up, giving you a beautiful view of Gatlinburg and the surrounding mountains. Once you are at the top you can strap on skis, a snowboard or a pair of ice skates. Don’t have any of your own? Don’t worry, you can rent them for a good price on top of the mountain. When you need to get warm or want to take a break from outdoor activities you can wander inside for some more fun. Take in a ride on the carousel, challenge your kids to some arcade games and then grab some lunch with hot chocolate. With so much to see and do you may find yourself visiting OberGatlinburg the following day.

Tickets are sold based on the time that you want to hit the slopes. Choose from the Day Session that runs from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., the Twilight session from 3 p.m. to 10 p.m., the Night Session from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. or the Combo Session that lasts from 12 p.m. to 10 p.m. If you are planning on hitting the slopes for two days in a row, save some money by purchasing the Two-Session Tickets. In addition to equipment rental you can also arrange for a ski or snowboard lesson while you are visiting Gatlinburg. Just call ahead to check on times and rates to secure a spot. If you own a vacation rental in Gatlinburg and are looking for a Gatlinburg property manager then you may want to consider Elk Springs Resort to handle your important asset.

After a long day of rolling around in the snow, a night in at your luxury Gatlinburg cabin is just what you need. While every season is beautiful at the Elk Springs Resort, winter is extra-special because you get to feel so cozy in your very own luxury cabin rental. Unlike other cabin rental companies that offer just the basics, we allow you to get away from it all without having to give “it” all up. Enjoy access to free high-speed Internet, bubbling hot tubs, a full kitchen, flat screen TVs, gaming systems and much more.
