We have skied the East coast from Killington to WV, Utah and Colorado. Clearly those expensive, massive ski resorts have a much wider list of ski options than Wisp. However, we liked Wisp because of the close proximity and easy drive. The low prices for life tickets and the resort was amazing. Even Holiday Valley in NY is priced much... More

Pros: We liked the slopes, one trail is nice and long, but they don't have a super easy trail for kids or for beginners. The rental process was crazy but the staff really tried to keep the crowd moving. The prices were very reasonable, even the cafeteria food was affordable. Cons: The hotel is old and it shows. The room... More

We visited WISP on an outing with my husband's company. The room and the furniture were still dated, but useful. The size of the room with the king bed was exceptional. There was a coffee maker but the awesome housekeeper informed us about the "real" coffee in the lobby so we skipped the weak coffee in our room for a... More

Went to Wisp Christmas day for three days with my husband and children (13 months and a 5 year old). Wisp pretty much has everything you are looking for when it comes to skiing, tubing, ice skating, game room, swimming, and more. The grounds were clean and the staff was nice and food was plentiful. No problem getting alcohol if... More

I am giving this resort only two circles not because of any major nightmares but because of a simple "Are you kidding me!" Ok a ski resort without a wood burning fire place? REALLY! Come on Man! Now they had one in the 50 years plus of its history but apparently cost cut backs this year will not allow for... More

My family of five spent four days and three nights at the WISP resort during Christmas. We arrived on Christmas Eve and obtained an early check-in. After we had unpacked our belongings, we discovered that we were on the pet floor. Guest services did a great job accommodating our request for a change of floor as my kids and I... More

Stayed in room 324, which looks on to the slopes, and had a wonderful time. Friendly staff and great restaurant on site. Didn't ski, but someone in the party did and liked it. I did go tubing and had a blast!!!

Paid $259 per night for an old supposedly remodeled room. Overlooking a construction site on the 3rd floor. Left the hotel at 11AM after the first night only to arrive back at 10PM to find housekeeping had not made up the room. This place is a dump - ugly old 1970 style everything. Incompetent teenager type staff with no clue... More

This is not the Rockies or Vermont, but you can always count on decent snow at the Wisp Resort only a few hours from Washington, DC where I live. The resort has come up with new trails and other snow sport outlets that I'm eager to try after my visits there last winter. Somehow it's always snowing in that valley... More

attended wedding nearby. Reception held at hotel, convenience factor alone was well worth the stay. Hotel staff very friendly and accommodating, check in, reception, service and overall stay. Older style hotel with nicely completed updates and renovations. Very easy access off highway and simple to locate. Would stay again.
