Ober Gatlinburg offering Early Bird special

Ober Gatlinburg is proving that the early bird does get the worm with their season pass sale.

The resort is offering an Early Bird special for the 2016/2017 season as season passes are now on sale for $299. The special rate runs through Nov.18.

After Nov. 18, season passes will be available at the regular season rate of $349.

Skiers and Snowboarders with season passes can also purchase a 2016-2017 parking permit for $35. Season passes and season pass holder parking permits are non-refundable and non-transferable.

Ober will kickoff the 2016-17 winter season on Nov. 19 as tubing will open. Ski and Snowboarding operations will begin once weather allows with a target Mid-December date. The resort has been hard at work this offseason as they have made numerous improvements – including improving the efficiency of snowmaking ops and adding a magic carpet on the ski school slope.
