Another Nor'easter is Here!

Update: March 21, 3:00pm

The current Nor'easter has delivered 5" of snow to the slopes at Wisp Resort.  It's still snowing so if you're not on the slopes enjoying the fresh snow (which we hope you are), you can check out the flakes flying on our Mountain Cams.


What's the weather like you ask?  Oh, you know, just the first day of spring with a massive Nor'easter dumping snow in Deep Creek Lake today.  As of 2:00pm, approximately 2.5" has fallen and it's snowing to beat the band!  See the live action on our Mountain Cams.  Enjoy the powder!

In Like A Lion...

As the saying goes, March comes in like a lion and that's held true here in Deep Creek Lake.  With less than 1" of snow on the ground, temps in the upper 20s and the wind howling, the winter storm is here.

Due to high winds and snowmaking operations, ski and ride operations are suspended for today.  Snowmaking will continue through the night as weather permits so we can get back on track to open tomorrow, Saturday, March 3 from 9am - 5pm. 

Mountain Park

The Mountain Park operation is also suspended today for snow tubing, ice skating and mountain coaster operations.  Operations will re-open as scheduled tomorrow at 10am.

Hello March

New month, new weather pattern, NEW SNOW!  There is lots to be psyched about today as we welcome March into ski season.  

S - N - O - W

A winter weather advisory is in effect from Thursday, March 1 at 1am thru Friday, March 2 at 4pm.  (Have we mentioned we love those?) 3" - 6" of snow accumulation possible in Garrett County!  And with that comes a helping of high winds which could impact snowmaking.  We may see ideal temps and wet bulb but those winds better simmer down for our Snowmaking Crew to be able to crank out some snow.  Check out our Mountain Cams for a live shot of the action.

Daily Operations

We're still skiing and riding from 9am - 5pm daily.  The Mountain Park is open for snow tubing, ice skating and the mountain coaster daily.  View the hours of operation for more details.

Military March

We are honoring our Nation's Heroes with savings up to 25% off lift tickets, rentals, lessons, snow tubing, mountain coaster and ice skating.  Plus, Military can stay at the recently renovated slop-side Lodge at Wisp for just $89 per night.  Call to book - 844.472.2759.

Must show military ID to receive offer.  Promotion valid March 1 - 25 or the end of the 17.18 winter season.  Not valid with other promotions, discounts, packages, combos, multi-packs, skating lessons or group stays.  Lodging based on availability and advance reservation.

Stage Wisp Bonus Concert

We're not ready for the party to end so we've booked a Stage Wisp Bonus Concert for Friday, March 2.  Come enjoy the new snow and a free show by Eli Cook at 6:30pm in Wispers Bar.
