In addition to all the great attractions at our very own SkyLand Ranch, another great winter activity is snow tubing in Pigeon Forge at Rowdy Bear’s Smoky Mountain Snowpark! Here’s everything you need to know about this exciting winter activity.
1. Largest Snow Tubing Hill in Tennessee
Rowdy Bear’s Smoky Mountain Snowpark has the longest snow tubing hill not just in Pigeon Forge but in the entire state of Tennessee. The tubing lanes are 500 feet long with a thrilling 70-foot drop. You can reach speeds over 35 miles per hour as you race down the hill. This attraction offers outdoor tubing year-round, but in the winter you get to tube down real snow! Even if snow isn’t falling from the sky, you’ll still be able to go snow tubing in Pigeon Forge because Rowdy Bear’s Smoky Mountain Snowpark makes their own real snow. That means you can experience snow tubing all winter long.
2. Convenient Location
You won’t need to hike a mountain to find a hill worth tubing. Rowdy Bear’s Smoky Mountain Snowpark is conveniently located right on the main Parkway in Pigeon Forge just a few minutes down the road from SkyLand Ranch. You can see the snow tubing hill from the Parkway, so you can’t miss it! This is especially convenient if you want to go snow tubing during the day then visit SkyLand’s Festival of Lights at The Ranch at night for the perfect winter day!
