“We are so fortunate to have the community support of businesses like Ober Gatlinburg,” said Ashley Justice, the Clinic’s Director of Fund Development. “The funds raised will help us provide more quality health care to those in Sevier County with no health insurance. The Clinic is very grateful for Ober’s generosity.”
Ober Gatlinburg has been undergoing renovations and recently announced the opening of a new ski run this winter. On this advanced rated slope, skiers and snowboarders will travel down a 45-foot wide run for a distance of 635 feet before connecting with Mogul Ridge, Grizzly and Upper Basin Run. It will be lighted for use at night.
“We are excited to offer a new slope to our guests. This will be the first new slope Ober Gatlinburg has added since Mogul Ridge in 1987,” said Bruce Anders, Ober Gatlinburg’s President. “This expansion of skiable acreage for advanced skiers will also allow more space for events.”
Ober Gatlinburg is asking the public’s help in choosing a name for the new slope with a survey here.
