Last week, the Tri-State had enough snow to last an entire year. But, there were two problems: It was way too cold, and it has already melted. I found an attraction that has real snow, and the temperatures stay warm enough that you don't even need a jacket! What is this magical place? It's Pigeon Forge Snow, and it's open year-round.

I have never been to Gatlinburg or the Smoky Mountains, but my husband has been there twice, and says we must go someday. Now that travel is getting a little safer with COVID-19 vaccines, I decided to do some research about the area.

Of course, there are so many nice cabins and themed Airbnbs to stay in (See below) But what else can you do in the Gatlinburg / Pigeon Forge area? There are so many tourist spots, but one that really caught me eye was  Pigeon Forge Snow.

I really wanted to get out and build a snowman last week, but it was just too cold. How cool would it be, to play in real snow, indoors, with no coat required? That's one of the awesome features that Pigeon Forge Snow offers. They make the snow from 100% real water. There is nothing else added. How it doesn't melt with the temperatures staying 60-70 degrees is a mystery to me.

In addition to the indoor snow play area, you can also go snow tubing down giant slides. They are open everyday, and you don't need a reservation.

1 Hour of Tubing: $21.99 –  All ages – *Must be 38 inches tall*

30 Minutes of Snow Play: $7.99

1 Hour of Tubing + Snow Play: $26.99 (Best Value)

I think Olaf would really love it here. He could literally give warm hugs!
