A Beautiful Day in the Mountains


With snow guns blasting 5,000 gallons per minute around the mountain, Wisp Resort has turned about 15 Million gallons of water into snow so far this year.  Along with natural snow fall, this has created a beautiful base of roughly 6 inches. The resort has put in over 100 hours of snowmaking over the last few weeks, anytime the wet bulb allowed for it. That said, heavy winds have been a jester at times and we think some of our snow might have made it all the way to Oakland!  As of today, the winds have finally subsided and we are starting to see some pretty good whales develop. We are forecast to lose snowmaking temperatures around mid-day today, and will be shutting down snowmaking operations until the next window of opportunity.  Next window looks to be sometime Tuesday evening, but our snowmaking team is standing by should that change.  We will update you with Opening Dates as soon as they are officially announced through our Wisp Resort Facebook page and our e-club newsletter which you can sign up at www.wispresort.com.  In the meantime, our grounds-crew is making sure all of the features around the resort are ready for the winter season: working on snowtubing lanes, reloading firepits, and decorating for the holidays. Let's get excited for an awesome winter in Deep Creek Lake!
