With snow blanketing some parts of Georgia, we decided to come up with a list you can get some immediate use from. Sledding may be few and far between in Georgia, but there are certainly some hills and a few mountains which deserve some much-needed recognition. So grab your toboggan and shine up your sled. Here are the best places to go sled tubing in Georgia this winter:
Unfortunately, public sledding opportunities in Georgia are few and far between, especially since the weather is so neurotic around here. But the great news is, Georgians are just as thrifty as they are clever, and really, sledding through freshly fallen snow is all about what you make out of it. Whether it’s asking your neighborhood golf course to use their newly powdered land or finding your own mountain to treat yourself to some fun – Georgians get creative and make the best of what they have! After all, that’s what enjoying the snow is all about right?
If you have a sledding spot you’d like to share, we’d love to hear from you! Let’s grow this list to as many safe and satisfying places as we can think of! Or if you’re looking for more adventures through Georgia, then check out 10 Unforgettable Road Trips To Take In Georgia Before You Die.
Snow Tubing in Georgia
Where are the best tubing hills in Georgia?
Georgia might not have a huge reputation as a winter wonderland, per se, but that does NOT mean they don’t know how to have a wonderful winter! There are all kinds of fun wintery things to do, like the ever-popular (for obvious reasons) art of snow tubing. Believe it or not, there are several places scattered all over the state – mostly in the northern bits of it – where snow tubing is second nature. There are a few that seem to come up time and time again when people are talking about the best tubing hills in Georgia, like the legendary Stone Mountain Park, for example, with hills galore. In Buford, there’s a delightful little place called “License to Chill” (see what they did there?) and it’s also well-known for its legendary snow tubing shenanigans. There’s also the awesome Snow Mountain, which we’ve covered before – easily one of the most beloved, and for obvious reasons!
Are there any nice ski resorts in Georgia?
Uhh, well… not really. There are some smaller places you could probably count as a resort, but all the best ones are in the surrounding states (most of them are still a short drive from Atlanta). For example, the Ober Gatlinburg in Gatlinburg, Tennessee, is a great one, and we also really like Wolf Ridge in Mars Hill, North Carolina. There are lots of local parks and hotels, though, that enjoy going all-out for the snowy season. There’s always Margaritaville, in Gainesville, which has all kinds of fun, snowy things to do through the end of February! Don’t let the lesser-snowy nature of Georgia dampen your winter plans! You can do plenty of fun things ‘round these parts. There are also seasonal ice-skating rinks like The Rink at Sugar Hill, Sweetland on Ice, and Evans on Ice.
