There's something about looking down on the earth that fills people with a sense of awe and wonder. That's easy to do in the Smokies, especially considering all the beautiful mountain peaks that dominate the landscape. This week, consider a couple of different outdoor activities that will definitely provide you with a change in altitude.
The higher elevations in the Smokies received some great snowfall this weekend, which means there are still prime skiing conditions at Ober Gatlinburg Ski Resort. This week, they're looking at a snow base of 24 to 35 inches, and there's no snow making necessary since nature has been so cooperative with the white stuff. The resort's seven open trails are ideal for skiing and snowboarding, and there's also a 10-lane snow tubing course and indoor ice skating.
You can also get a lift of a different kind if you're in the mood for a Pigeon Forge zipline adventure. At Smoky Mountain Ziplines, we offer plenty of bird's-eye views from our 24 different zipline runs. Just like with skiing, you'll enjoy the sensation of speed as well, and thanks to predicted moderate temperatures this week, you won't have to bundle up too much to stay warm.
