Snow Tubing and Glacier Glide Ice Skating at Opryland

This is the last weekend you’ll get a chance to experience the winter wonderland that is Gaylord Opryland. Grab the whole family and race down a six-lane tubing hill cloaked in 1.5 million pounds of snow – and we’re not talking about the fake stuff. Then, glide along 6,000 square-feet of ice under the shining sun, or even under the night stars, on the hotel’s outdoor ice rink. It’s the perfect way to unwind from the holidays and get ready for the winter season!

When: Today & tomorrow

Where: Gaylord Opryland Events Center Lawn

Admission: Snow Tubing – $16.99, Ice Skating – $14.99
