Beautiful Weekend Ahead!

With the ski slopes open this evening until 9pm and sun crawling across the mountain, it is time to get on your gear and head over to Wisp Resort!  Sunshine returning this afternoon after a few overcast days.  Highs reaching around 40 degrees Fahrenheit today, dropping down to 5 degrees this evening which leaves us with perfect conditions for snowmaking.  Saturday will be a beautiful day full of sunshine and a high of 20.  Sunday looking great as well with a high of 26, clouds in the morning and sunshine peeking its head out in the early afternoon.  All open trails are groomed besides Face.  The Mountain Ops team is pressuring up snowmaking guns as we speak, waiting until temperatures get low enough this afternoon to start pumping out snow.  Once we get the snow guns blasting, we are hoping to keep them on through Sunday.  

In the 2018.19 Winter season, Wisp Resort has run the snowmaking system for a total of 842 hours in 41 days. This has allowed Wisp Resort's snowmaking team to pump 153 million gallons of water in the production of 1000 acre feet of snow. This is the most we have been able to run the snowmaking system in the last 8 years.  Because the weather has allowed us to produce this much - we still have tons of snow!  Punxsutawney Phil must have been short sighted, just seeing the last few days of warm temperatures, because we still have plenty of winter to enjoy.

Come join us this weekend for our weekly events: Friday Night Tap Takeover and #ApresWisp. 

This week's Friday Night Tap Takeover features Bell's Brewing Company.  Come join us tonight from 7pm to 10pm in Alpine Bar & Wispers Bar & Grill at Wisp Resort. Reps will be handing out Bells Brewing swag. $4.99 Drink special on Bells craft beer options. 

This week's #ApresWisp theme is "80's Vintage Ski Party."  Join us for the BIGGEST party of the season!! Fluorescent clothing and accessories suggested. Come kick off this Après Ski party in your best vintage one-piece ski suit! There will be an 80's ski suit competition, onsite hairdressers offering a variety of 80's styles ($15-$20 for an awesome 80's hair updo), Aperol, Mionetto Prosecco, and Ole Smoky Moonshine $5.99 drink specials, giveaways, and a live DJ spinning jams from the 1980's. This event will take place in Alpine Bar (formerly DC's), this Saturday, February 9 from 3pm-6pm.  We'll see you on the mountain!
