Are you craving an unforgettable experience that transcends the boundaries of seasons? Look no further than the captivating Ober Mountain, nestled snugly in the Smoky Mountains. With a wide variety of activities to choose from, Ober Mountain promises an unparalleled year-round experience that will leave you begging for more! 

What's more, the new ownership of Ober Mountain has changed their military discount policy—for the better! Both active-duty and retired military personnel receive 100% free entry, which includes the activities/tram wristband. The only activities the wristband doesn't cover are skiing and snowboarding; however, they do offer a 15% discount on the price of ski area tickets and ski or snowboard equipment rentals. With the service member present (unless currently deployed), the same discount is extended to their spouse & dependent children. Discounts do not apply to night session lift tickets, as those sessions are already greatly discounted.
