Most people probably know what they are getting into skiing-wise at wisp. Its not huge, but its fun. It had been a long time since I had been, and did the tubing area for the first time. It was a blast. They had a few issues with the lift carpet, but it was a great time. I highly recommend for... More

Wisp Resort and Ski Area is located near Deep Creek Lake MD. It may be the only ski resort in MD. For skiing and snowboarding, the mountain has some nice runs and is adequate for beginner and intermediate skiers. What made the experience Poor for me was the hotel and food services at the lodge. First, I doubt if my... More

I like Wisp because it is sort of laid-back. I dislike the slow lifts, but at least they have two main lifts side-by-side. Night skiing was a bit exciting since Wisp trail had several lights out.

We really enjoyed our weekend at Wisp. The trails were not crowded and the staff across the board were friendly and accommodating. I do think they need to invest in upgrading the lifts as they are particularly slow. If they'd add a high speed quad, Wisp could easily be the premiere resort in the MD/VA/PA ski region.

The lift lines during the day are absolutely insane, so we didn't even try to go until after 5:00pm. However, from 5:00 to 9:00 the lines diminished to little to no wait at all, and the trails were not crowded. We had plenty of room and did not feel crowded. The trails were nice and long, and they were clearly... More

This was my second time skiing and my first time at Wisp. I loved everything about it. We parked at the top of the mountain and received our lift and rentals there. The bottom of the mountain is more crowded. The green runs are wonderful and I felt very comfortable. The North side of the mountain was my favorite since... More

This was our first time at Wisp and it was pretty great! The lift lines were short and the trails had tons of snow on them! We had a blast exploring all the different trails. And for $30 bucks for a night ticket during the week, that's a good deal! I will definitely be back!

Went skiing at Wisp over MLK weekend with 6 friends. We had a horrible time trying to get lift passes and rentals at the top of the mountain. After paying for both, and waiting nearly 1.5 hours, we found out that they were out of skis and boots at this location. We were instructed to take a shuttle to the... More

Online it appeared they had a military discount but when I arrived was told there was a heros weekend last weekend and 'that's all they do, they really don't support the military'. My local MWR tried to get discounted tickets and was told they weren't interested. Lift lines were short and skiing was good for a Friday. Lift operators aren't... More

We had a group of 11 with 2 families. Mostly intermediate skiers and boarders, but one beginner. We were there 4 days. The weather was extremely cold our first three days but milder our fourth day. Most of the trails were open, and the conditions were very good. We didn't have many icy spots at all. Lift lines were short,... More
