Full review

I visited Ober (or Uber as I prefer) Gatlinburg in early March so it was a little warmer than I prefer. Still, the slopes were groomed, there wasn't too many people, and I didn't have to drive as far from Atlanta, GA so that was good. None of the runs were very difficult (although we weren't allowed on Grizzly because of a competition) and they were all too short for my liking meaning that you spent a lot of time on OG's poorly padded and awkward to get onto lifts. But the length and difficulty were along the lines with what I expected for a ski resort in Tennessee. I would have no objection to going back, but I think next year I'll try to spend more time shredding out west.
