General Information

Gatlinburg attracts numbers of tourists every year. There have been many attractions built to accommodate the tourists and keep them happy. One of the many tourist attractions that has been around for years is the Gatlinburg Sky Lift. The Sky Lift was very difficult to assemble and was also extremely expensive, but since it was built in 1953, it has been a huge success. This Ski Lift gives a great view and a wonderful experience. The Sky Lift runs directly over The Little Pigeon River then elevates up to a height of 1,800 ft. When you reach the top of your scenic journey, there is a Gift Shop, Picnic Area, and Snack Shop for you and your family to enjoy. You also have the option of getting your picture taken while you are riding up the Sky Lift. One more great amenity of The Gatlinburg Sky Lift is that it is handicap accessible.
