Throughout the year, each season typically dictates the activities we choose, such as winter sports, spring picnics, summer fireworks, and fall fairs. Well, not anymore! Make the most of winter, spring into good times, beat the summer heat, and fall into Pigeon Forge Snow, America’s first indoor snow park — open year-round! Featuring 15 lanes of snowy delight as well as a playroom filled with fresh powder snow, this brand-new attraction just off the Parkway in Pigeon Forge is a cool place (pun intended) for families, friends, and groups of all kinds. On your next trip to the Great Smoky Mountains, be sure to schedule a day or two of fun in the snow — no matter the season!
Don’t take our word for it — see for yourself!

Indoor Snow Tubing
As you make your way up the moving ramp (automated so you can travel upwards with ease) to the top of the snow tubing hill, excitement will grow from the smiles for miles and laughter all around. After all, it’s not every day one gets to play in the snow, so it’s only natural the room be filled with genuine joy! Having bonded with your selected ride (aka a snow tube), you ready yourself at the top of the hill, prepared to soar down this snow tubing attraction at any moment during your hour of tubing. With a racing heart and an uncontrollable grin from ear to ear, you let go and embark on your first indoor snow tubing adventure!
Once you get a feel for the thrill, you’ll be heading up the ramp many times over to glide back down the 15 featured lanes. Race your bestie down the slope, challenge your family in a test of speed, and see your little one’s face light up as they glide straight to you. Feel free to take a few family videos and photos with friends to commemorate the unique experience. More interested in watching from a safe distance? Head to the second level for the best viewing platform as well as refreshing drinks and tasty treats at the snack bar!
After racing downhill, and perhaps indulging in a bite to eat, venture to the SnowPlay Room, where snow is abundant — and fun is, too! Create flawless snow angels (it’s a learned skill) and cheerful snowmen with the kids. Dub Dad as Winter Wonderlad, ready to save the day from the villainous snow creatures carved by the rest of the gang...and Mom. Who knows? Pop the Polar Bear, the cheery mascot of Pigeon Forge Snow, may even stop by for a snowy game or two in the snow play area.
Playing around in the snow is an entertaining activity all ages (no height restrictions) can enjoy at Pigeon Forge Snow. With this in mind, there are a few rules everyone must abide by to keep the good times rolling. Pushing people to get to the best patch of snow, throwing snowballs at other guests, running circles around your friends, and horseplay are definitely not allowed. After all, you wouldn’t want to be responsible for knocking a child down, ruining carefully crafted snow art, or causing a ruckus in front of strangers, would you?
Boasting an indoor temperature of 60-70 degrees year-round, Pigeon Forge Snow makes it easy to get away from the icy winds of winter and the scorching heat of summer. Plus, with 365 days of snow, you can enjoy snowy activities during any season, including spring and fall.
As a bonus, this 35,000-square-foot facility features all-natural snow, meaning no chemicals or harsh additives — water is the only ingredient! This patented, state-of-the-art snowmaking technology is truly remarkable, something to note when venturing inside this one-of-a-kind attraction with real snow.
- With comfortable temperatures remaining fairly consistent throughout the building, there’s no need to bundle up or bring a parka. However, a long-sleeve shirt or a light jacket as well as closed-toed shoes are highly recommended!
- If you treasure your loose belongings, leave them with a friend or family member while you head down the lane, as losing or damaging precious items would not be ideal.
- While making pretend snow cones is perfectly acceptable (and pretty fun for little chefs), taking a bite is simply not allowed…or delicious.
- Okay, but what if I’m super hungry or insatiably thirsty? Although food and drink is not permitted on snowy ground, remember there’s a snack bar on the second level, so famished and parched times are never a problem.
- Ease your safety concerns by listening intently to attraction attendants and following all instructions to the T — they know best, after all. Plus, they may even have pointers on how to make your trip down the slope extra fun!
- Doubling up on snow tubes is not allowed as there is a limit of one person per tube in the interest of everyone’s welfare. Dominoes is only fun when you are not a game piece…
