If you're coming from D.C. Drive the extra hour for the best resort by far! Great runs, lots of natural snow, and not as crowded

Pros: awesome parking, ticket lines quick, night skiing was fantastic and not crowded. Cons: overpriced lift tickets for "premium" weekend with average skiing. When all runs are NOT open, you have no business charging "premium rates!" Also, there was only one legitimate black diamond (The Face).

I booked a mid-week two night stay at the resort. I was worried about the weather, about 24 hours before we arrived the resort got a lot of rain. Fortunately the rain stopped and the temps dropped allowing the team here to crank up the snow making equipment. When we arrived that evening snow making was in full force. Not... More

We visit Wisp regularly and this was one of the more disappointing visits. They were completely unprepared for the amount of people that they had visit the ski resort on a holiday weekend with 6 inches of snow expected. At one point a chair lift was so understaffed the line was not being managed and the line of skiiers was... More

This was our first time skiing and this was the perfect size ski resort/mountain for a beginner. It was large enough to challenge someone that is skilled but small enough not to overwhelm a beginner. The mountain is in no comparison size wise to skiiing in the Rockies or similar destinations, it would be considered a hill to those used... More

The is the second time we have come to vacation at Wisp. It is an absolutely wonderful place for skiing, snowboarding, tubing, and even has a fun "mountain coaster" to ride. We got a pack of three for one day which included tubing, ice skating, and the mountain coaster. The ice skating rink, however, was a HUGE disappointment. There was... More

I've lived and worked at Deep Creek and Wisp Resort in 2007/08 winter. The staff is cool and helpful. Snowboard acessories are Burtons and in great shape. They offer a lot of activies such as snowboard, sky, Mountain Coaster, Tubing park, bars, restaurants, indoor swimming pool, gym... We all had a great time!

Nothing to complain about here though it'd be convenient if their parking was paved and they had a shuttle so you didn't have to drive the short distances around the lakes offerings.

Woody was our guide today for an hour trip on the all terrain X2's. The off road tour was amazing and Woody was very willing to show you as many new maneuvers and tricks as he thought you could handle and teaching you anything you are comfortable learning. The course included paved trails, gravel, dirt, grass, hillsides, and obstacles like... More
