4. Breathtaking View

No matter what activity you are taking part in on the mountain, be sure to take a few moments to appreciate the amazing views all around you. While the Smokies are a beautiful place to visit year round, there is something special about the snow covered mountain. Even if you don’t want to participate in the activities, the amazing view from the aerial tramway will make it well worth the trip! The tramway departs from downtown Gatlinburg and lifts you over 300 feet in the sky, giving you a bird's eye view of the Smoky Mountains!
