First Snowfall of the Season

Wisp Resort and the Deep Creek Lake area received the first snowfall of the season overnight.  The snow began to fall around 7:30pm and within a few hours, there were a few inches of snow on the ground.  Fun Fact:  Because the air temperature and humidity vary greatly across Garrett County, there are always different measurements of snowfall.  With Deep Creek Lake unfrozen, this creates more moisture in the air and impacts snow storms (and snowmaking!)  Approximately 2 inches of snow feel on the slopes at Wisp Resort -- just enough to cover everything in a beautiful white blanket. As always, our wonderful State Highway Plows were out this morning to be sure the roads were clear and safe!  For a live shot of the snow, check out our webcam.  We know it won't stick around long but we are hopeful for a cold and snowy winter!  Winter is coming...
