Wisp Resort Policy
In compliance with the American Disabilities Act, Wisp Resort provides access to our facilities, pedestrian areas and programs to all of our guests whenever possible, including our guests with mobility challenges. Wheelchairs and other devices, including those that are battery powered, that are designed primarily for use by individuals with mobility disabilities and are useable indoors as well as other manually powered mobility aids are granted full access to Wisp Resort. However, “Other Power-Driven Mobility Devices” defined as any motorized device powered by a battery, fuel or other engines, such as golf carts, and electronic personal assistance mobility devices, that are not designed primarily for use by individuals with mobility disabilities, may be granted or denied access depending on the assessment factors listed below.
Spring, summer and fall seasons
In non-winter seasons, certain mountain trails are open to motorized use, by ski area personnel for specific administrative purposes versus their use by members of the public for recreation. Ski area personnel are highly trained on how to use motorized vehicles in a reasonably safe manner, and use motorized devices for administrative, operational, maintenance or safety related reasons—not to recreate on such trails.
Year Round use of Facilities
Wisp Resort supports the use Other Power-Driven Mobility Devices at our Base Area Outdoor Facilities, including all parking areas, walkways, decks and patios that are designed for pedestrian use. Due to the crowding of our indoor facilities and the related safety of our guests, Wisp Resort does not allow Other Power-driven Mobility devices to be used indoors at our facility.
The use of Service Animals during winter season
Wisp Resort supports the use of trained service animals during the winter operation season. All Services animals must meet current ADA guidelines to include, but not be limited to: remaining under the direct control of the user at all times; be house broken; and be trained and utilized for a specific disability approved by ADA regulations.
