Ready for Snow Yet?

Posted by Leif Palmer in Seasons Smoky Mountains

This is typically the time of year when the summer heat really starts getting cranked up. This year, Mother Nature is right on time, as we're seeing highs creep up into the 90s, with heat indexes reaching up into the 100s.

Sure, there are lots of ways to keep cool in the Smokies during summer. You can spend time at a water park, on a lake, in a river or in your hotel swimming pool. Or you could focus on activities that allow you to stay indoors with a nice, functioning air conditioning unit.

But how would you feel about enjoying some SNOW right about now? And what if we told you that you could have fun in the snow right here in the Smokies and you wouldn't have to wait until winter to do it?

Future home of Pigeon Forge Snow

We're not pulling your leg, because the area's newest attraction, Pigeon Forge Snow, will be opening in the next few months, bringing all the benefits of snowfall to these hot days of summer. The attraction will provide year-round indoor snow tubing and will be located just off the Parkway in Pigeon Forge.

Pigeon Forge Snow will be the first attraction of its kind in the country, using state-of-the-art snow-making technology to transform its 35,000-square-foot facility into a winter wonderland, complete with 15 lanes of snow tubing. And instead of using synthetic material, Snow's slopes will be covered in the real thing – fresh snow powder.

The attraction will offer other classic winter activities as well, including a play area where guests can build snowmen and have snowball fights. They'll even sell snow cones for visitors to snack on in between their wintry fun.

The cool part (pun intended) is that guests won't have to bundle up much to go snow tubing. The facility will maintain a comfortable temperature between 60 and 65 degrees, which is much warmer than the typical East Tennessee winter.

Pigeon Forge Snow is owned by Sevierville native and entrepreneur, who also owns The Coaster at Goats on the Roof, a popular alpine coaster on Wears Valley Road.

The attraction will be located in the heart of the city and is being built from the ground up on Teaser Lane, near the Nike Clearance Store. It will be just a three-minute drive from The Island attraction in Pigeon Forge.

No opening date has been announced, but they're hoping it will be ready by late summer or early fall of 2017.

If you wind up checking out Pigeon Forge Snow when it opens, we hope you consider booking one of our cabins in Pigeon Forge, TN. Our properties are only a few minutes from Snow's location, and you'll also pass right by the Goats on the Roof attraction on the way.

He indulges his arty side by periodically beating up pieces of marble by sculpting. He is always frustrated by his inability to sink long putts, and hates his curly hair (but his wife loves it). Leif has been known to muster enough courage to change a diaper, and hopes his son will become a chip off the old block.
