Warm Weather's Bad News for Ober Gatlinburg

GATLINBURG, Tenn (WVLT) As long as the temperatures are warm, the profits are soft at Ober Gatlinburg.

The slopes are closed, and workers are unsure when opening day will be this year.

Ober Gatlinburg needs temperatures around 28 degrees to make snow.

Last Monday and Wednesday it was cold enough, so they made about 20 inches, but it was gone in three days.

The resort tries to open the slopes between the 7th and 15th of December.

But last year, skiers were already on the slopes at this time.
