Ober Gatlinburg welcomes tubers early

Ober Gatlinburg welcomes tubers early

Just in time for the Thanksgiving crowds, Ober Gatlinburg opened up their snow tubing track Friday.

This weekend is the earliest the resort has ever been able to accumulate enough snow for tubers.

"We're one of the first tubing operations to open in the United States," said John Cossaboom, Director of Winter Sports for Ober Gatlinburg.

Ober has invested in new technology called Snow Magic that allows them to make snow even when it's warm. They have been making the ice chips that give the appearance of snow since September.
