While the ride on the tram up was awesome, the stuff at the top was not; very outdated and kinda boring if you aren’t planning on skiing or tubing. I do not recommend for someone who is just curious as to what’s at the top—like...More

We enjoyed our trip on the Ober. The facility could use some updates and the staff was not very friendly. But the ride up and down were great.

When you get to the top of Ober Gatlinburg, you must take the chairlift ride to the top of Mt. Harrison. You can see all over the mountains. Beautiful view.

Yes you can definitely ski. Buy a gondola ticket from town rather than drive up the mountain. It was a harrowing drive in the summer. Can’t imagine what it’s like in winter.
