Ready. Set. Make Snow!

Wisp's Mountain Ops Crew is getting in position to turn on the snow guns this evening, Sunday, November 19.  After watching buckets of rain spill over Garrett County yesterday, the sun rose today with a dusting of snow and much colder temps.  It has continued to flurry throughout the day with gusty winds not really allowing for any real accumulation.  

With most of the snowmaking efforts focused on the front side, you'll be able to watch the action with our webcam.

Let Winter Begin!

Update - Monday morning, November 20

We've got guns blazing on:

  • Sunset Blvd
  • Central Park
  • Squirrel Cage
  • Upper Grouse
  • Wisp Trail
  • Wisp Kids Learning Yard
  • Snow Tubing Park

Update - Monday afternoon, November 20

With temps creeping into the low to mid-30s, the snow guns shut down about 1pm allowing for approximately 12 hours of snowmaking.  Just under 1 million gallons of water was pumped through the system totaling about 7 acre feet of snow on the areas listed above.
