Gatlinburg Sky Lift

Opened by Boyne Resorts in 1954, Gatlinburg Sky Lift is a scenic year-round chairlift ride offering beautiful views of the majestic Smoky Mountains and surrounding Gatlinburg. Still operated by Boyne Resorts, Gatlinburg Sky Lift is owned by CNL Income Properties as part of a long-term strategic alliance including a leaseback agreement. Its observation deck at the peak of Crockett Mountain stands at 1,800 feet with snacks and shopping available. Gatlinburg is in Sevier County and located in a narrow valley at the foot of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park and is a funnel for people driving coast to coast and tourists from all over the country.
