What To Wear Snow Tubing At Ober Gatlinburg?

The most important thing to know when planning your outfit for snow tubing at Ober Gatlinburg is that layers are key!


Turtleneck Long Sleeves

This is a good base layer to keep your core warm. This layer should be thin and form fitting 


Waterproof Jacket

Make sure that the jacket you choose is waterproof so you will stay dry during your time snow tubing.

Ober suggests wearing items of clothing with a loop or hole, such as a zipper pull, button-hole, or belt loop to attach your lift ticket and tubing tickets securely.



Don't forget to keep your head and ears warm too!


Waterproof Gloves

It is important to choose a pair of waterproof gloves that fit snugly and with enough flexibility so you can still grip the tube.


Snow Pants
