Get A Snowflake's View of the Smokies

Anybody notice all that white stuff on the ground? If you're in the area and hail from a much warmer climate, we call this stuff “snow.” It usually doesn't make its first appearance until well into the new year, but this winter, we've already had a white Christmas and a big early-January snowfall. If you're currently not in the Smokies and are planning a trip here, you'll get a chance to see the mountains in all their snow-covered glory.

However, if you're thinking that the snow might limit your outdoor activities, think again. At Smoky Mountain Ziplines, our course is generally up and running year 'round (although it probably wouldn't hurt to call ahead on snowy days just to make sure). But if we're open for business, what better way to take in all that gorgeous, snow-blanketed beauty than by viewing it from high off the ground, on one of our 18 zipline runs?

Just imagine how alive and invigorated you'll feel sliding through the air among the barren treetops, which offer up unhindered view of the rolling Smoky Mountain terrain surrounding you. In fact, it's as close as you'll ever come to knowing what it's like to be a snowflake that's whirling it's way through the air on the breeze.

You could even make ziplining a part of a bigger adventure. For example, from our ziplines, Gatlinburg and its ski slopes are only a short drive away, offering even more outdoor winter fun.

Of course, if you plan to visit us this winter, be sure to dress appropriately. Wear plenty of layers and don't forget to wear something to cover your head and ears. As for your hands, we'll be supplying you with special gloves that you'll need for slowing yourself down on the ziplines.
