Happy New Year

Happy New Year - Welcome to 2017!  As the holidays come to a close, we want to thank all of our guests that visited the resort during the holiday season.  We appreciate you choosing Wisp Resort as the gathering place to spend your precious time with friends and family and hope you will be back again this winter season.  With a new year, comes new opportunities for change and in our case, we are waiting on a change in weather.  This roller coaster of weather will take a turn midweek and is forecasted to bring favorable snowmaking conditions starting Wednesday evening, January 4.   Wisp's Mountain Ops Team plans to make snow on the currently open terrain with thin cover then begin snowmaking on unopened terrain in hopes of having all slopes and trails online for Martin Luther King, Jr. Holiday Weekend, January 13 - 16.  One of the job perks of being a Snowmaker is to witness incredible sunrises like the one pictured below that was taken by Snowmaker Colby Broadwater just a few days ago.

There are a few activities at Wisp Resort that don't require any snow - Ice Skating and the Mountain Coaster.  Both activities are located in the Mountain Park and operate on the same schedule as Snow Tubing.  The 50' X 85' oval Ice Rink creates it's own climate with a 100 ton chiller and uses a mini-Zamboni® to groom the surface.  The Mountain Coaster is a gravitational hybrid of an Alpine Slide and a Roller Coaster boasting a 1,300-foot uphill track while twisting, turning, dipping, and rolling for 3,500-feet downhill over 350 vertical feet.  Individual tickets are available for both activities or save a few dollars with the Winter Adventure Combo that includes an Ice Skating Session with skate rental, a single Mountain Coaster ride and a Snow Tubing session.
