Tennessee, North Carolina winter travel recommendations

Being as my grandchildren are Florida born babies, we are looking to take them to see real snow. Time frame is middle of February, with destinations being around Gatlinburg, Tellico Plains Tennessee including the Tennessee North Carolina state line area. Looking for recommendations, or comments. Does not have to be a campground, but cabin rentals are a plus.

The way this year is going you would have a hard time finding much snow. Ober Gatlinburg uses snow blowers to make snow for the ski slopes, and I believe they have a snow tubing section y’all may enjoy.

In a normal year, by mid January, we have around 6' (72") of snow on the ground and snowmobiling/skiing are well underway. This year, we've only had around 48" of snow and most of that melted within a few days of falling. We actually had some 40F temps in January, unheard of (typically)...

Current snow on the ground is less than 12" in most places outside the "machine driven slope snow" at ski resorts. Our yard is only about 6" deep. This is a very unusual year, but the Farmer's Almanac projected a colder than usual with very little snowfall winter.... So far, it's accurate.

Here's a comparison chart for the northern half of Michigan's lower peninsula

Most people we've talked to further south have related little to no snow. Even in southwest Ohio, with the recent storm, it's all but melted and little additional is forcasted.
