Wisp Resort

With what some have declared as the top snowmaking system in the world covering 172 acres of varied terrain, Wisp Resort has slopes for everyone. From 26 acres of new gladed terrain to a new 14 acre area dedicated for beginner and novice skiers and snowboarders; from mogul runs, to terrain parks and smooth groomed runs for intermediate and advanced participants, Wisp keeps you smiling with all kinds of variety. Add the winter adventure park to the mix with snow tubing, a mountain coaster, and ice skating, and a Nordic area for cross-country skiing, snow shoeing, and snowmobiling, and there are outdoor activities to suit every style and taste.

While Wisp might be best known as a ski resort, the fact is that more people visit the Deep Creek Lake area where Wisp is located in the summer than in the winter. Why? Naturally, there’s the crisp mountain air and beautiful mountain scenery, but there is also the draw of Maryland’s largest fresh water lake, Wisp’s two top rated and eminently playable golf courses, the world’s only mountain top white water rafting course, tons of hiking and mountain biking trails, and of course the summer adventure park with aerial challenge courses, canopy tours, and Segway tours. Throw in outdoor concerts and other events a couple nights a week, and there is no place better to spend a summer week or weekend – for a family, a couple, a group, or a wedding party.

Wisp fits perfectly within the Pacific Group Resorts model due to its proximity to Washington, D.C., Baltimore, Pittsburgh, and Morgantown, along with its abundance of activities through which family, friends, and even business associates can become a little closer and enjoy one another’s company. There are also opportunities to turn those visits into regular occurrences if guests would like to invest in a second home at Wisp Resort, including ski-in, ski-out properties and properties along beautiful fairways. It all makes Wisp worthy of big smiles and lots of return visits.
