Good value and not too far from Baltimore/DC areas.

Okay, so let me first point out that yes this is a smallish ski resort and a small mountain compared to others that are farther north and west, but it's reasonable priced for lift tickets and you can spend a whole day here. There are several trails for all difficulty levels and they get snow pretty regularly. It can get... More

We took the hour long boat tour on Deep Creek Lake. During the tour the guide pointed out the interesting houses that were visible because of the lesser amount of foliage on the trees. He also shared the history of the Lake. The return point was near the Damn that created the lake. The Guide always slowed the boat down... More

We tripped upon this resort accidentally last year in the first week of October. We enjoyed a lovely time post summer tourists, pre-winter tourists... We were among fewer than 50 customers yet with a full staff. We did it again this year... and again had a blast. Unfortunately, rain curtailed our activities both years. However, each time we've visited we... More

We had a great time on Labor Day weekend. But it closes awefully early. There's so much to do for everyone for the full day.

I took two ski lessons with Greg Rouse over two weekends. He is a great instructor. Calm, knowledgeable, clear, and specific in how you can change to ski better. I learned more in two hours than I ever could have figured out on my own. Great skiing in the early morning. I'll be back next year for more. Thanks Greg.

This resort is a fun place to visit in the summer. The ski lifts allow delightful views of deep creek lake. The toboggan coaster was fun for all ages (small kids can ride with a parent). Each coaster has accelerator and brake so it's comfortable for first time riders as well as adventure seekers. There are two eateries or cafes... More

We were in Deep Creek this past week and when it stopped raining for three hours we went out to do something fun. the outdoor summer activities at Wisp were good for our group- ages 61-8. Grandparents took the chairlift to the top and enjoyed looking around- it's a little pricey for just a chairlift ride but they have zero... More

If you've travelled in Europe in alpine regions, you will be familiar with the concept. While this is built by a German company, it is definitely not like most of the ones that dot the Alps. For one, the sled is attached to the track; it does not give you the free run of a small halfpipe-like track. It also... More

We've skied WISP a few times and it's always been pretty good conditions -- you can't help weather all the time. The resort is pretty well run and things go pretty smoothly.
