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.
