Visitors to Pigeon Forge, TN just got a brand new way to cool off when the weather gets hot! In addition to slipping and sliding at Dollywood’s Splash Country and taking a dip in your cabin’s swimming pool, you can now go snow tubing right off of the Parkway. Pigeon Forge Snow just opened in March of 2018 and it is already generating a ton of positive buzz. This one-of-a-kind facility offers indoor snow tubing that guests can enjoy all year round. To help you plan your next vacation, Hearthside Cabin Rentals has put together a comprehensive guide to visiting Pigeon Forge Snow.
See Pigeon Forge Snow for Yourself
If you are still having trouble wrapping your head around the concept of indoor snow tubing, don’t worry! Pigeon Forge Snow is better seen than explained, so go ahead and check out this video filmed at the attraction:
How it Works
Pigeon Forge Snow is the first indoor snow tubing facility in the nation. Rather than using an artificial or synthetic substance that mimics snow, the attraction uses genuine fresh powder. The secret to Pigeon Forge Snow’s success is its state-of-the-art snow machines. Each day, the attraction fills these machines with pure water and it is converted into real, honest-to-goodness snow, which is sprayed directly onto the tubing slope.
Getting the chance to experience real snow has been a treat for visitors to the Smoky Mountains who come from Southern states that don’t have wintry weather. For some guests, this is the first snow they have ever seen in their lives!
No Need to Bundle Up
While you might expect Pigeon Forge Snow to have a chilly climate, that isn’t the case at all. Surprisingly, the building is kept at a comfortable 65 – 70 degrees throughout the year. Instead of bundling up in your winter jacket and boots, all you need to wear is a long sleeve shirt or a light jacket/windbreaker. As you can see in the video posted above, a few guests are even wearing shorts and T-shirts!
Multi-Lane Snow Tubing Course
The main attraction at Pigeon Forge Snow is, of course, the indoor snow tubing. The multi-lane tubing slope is separated by dividers, so guests don’t run into each other. When you reach the end of the hill, you don’t have to climb back up again, because a conveyor belt will take you right back up to the top. Guests must be at least 38 inches tall and 3 years old to go snow tubing.
Be sure to smile (or make a ridiculous face) when you zoom down the hill because Pigeon Forge Snow takes pictures of guests as they tube. These pictures, which are often hilarious, are available for purchase after your session.
Observation Level with Snack Bar
If you are visiting Pigeon Forge Snow but don’t want to hit the slopes yourself, there is a section with your name on it! The attraction’s second level is a wonderful place for parents to watch their kids have a blast on the snow tubing course. This level also features a snack bar, so you can kick back and relax with a beverage or a treat while your kids have fun.
In addition to the snow tubing course, Pigeon Forge Snow also offers a special area where guests can just play in the snow until their heart’s content. The SnowPlay Area is great for building snowmen, making snow angels, or having snowball fights. This section of Pigeon Forge Snow is open to guests of every age and height.
