Ober Gatlinburg Alpine Slide

In search of several ongoing conspiracies, we found ourselves at the top of Ober Gatlinburg, a fun spot at the top of the Smoky Mountains in Gatlinburg, Tennessee. Fellow scientist Patrick suggested that we investigate the Alpine Slide and why it is shrouded in conspiracy.

Upon approach of the entrance to the Alpine slide, we encountered the following sign warning us that no camera’s were permitted on the Alpine Slide. We had to find out why.

We bought our tickets, $6.00 each to ride the slide and noticed that a ski lift was the only access to the slide. We jumped on the lift, lowered the safety bar, and began the ascent to the top of the mountain. It took approximately 10 minutes to arrive.

During our climb, I was able to snap this sky eye view of the Alpine Slide. The photo shows two identical courses.

We were not worried as our camera was well disguised. All we can say is enjoy the video of the never before seen Ober Gatlinburg Alpine Slide ride.
