Full review

I live 45 min away from Ober and have purchased a season pass for about the last 5 years. Many folks hate on Ober but considering its location I feel they do the best job possible in running the place and keeping it up.If not for here I would not have learned to ride at the level I do today. From experience I have learned to go during the week and usually dont go on weekends. Too crowded. STAY AWAY during Christmas and New years, NIGHTMARE. When your not on the slopes theres lots to do in the town of Gatlinburg at the bottom of the mountain.
