The Pros of Winter Zipline ToursNovember 11, 2010 52 Comments
Because it takes place outdoors, ziplining is most often thought of as a summer activity. However, ziplining in the winter provides a nice break from the heat.
Luckily, in East Tennessee, the winters are fairly mild, meaning that the zipline season lasts longer. During the winter, you may see the peaks of the Smoky Mountains covered in snow, which certainly provides a breathtaking backdrop for the thrill of ziplining.
Another advantage of taking a zipline tour in the winter is that because it is off peak season, you may be able to find special prices and deals. In addition, because less people travel in the winter, tours are unlikely to sell out, and you may enjoy smaller tour groups.
Visiting Gatlinburg in the winter is an especially exciting time to visit the area. Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge are known for their festive offerings during the holiday season, and after your zipline tour, you can enjoy a Christmas show, find Christmas light displays, or shop for some holiday deals around town.
In addition to the winter season, for a few weeks in October, you can zipline and enjoy the beauty of the fall foliage and scenery of the Smoky Mountains. The fresh cool air and vivid hues of the turning fall trees are sure to provide an unforgettable atmosphere for your zipline tour.
Regardless of the season you pick for your zipline tour, you will be sure to have a fantastic experience.
