It'll Be April Fool's Day but this is No Joke!

We wish we were joking around, but unfortunately we are dealing with some bandwidth limitations we are in the process of addressing.  As a result, some customers have experienced difficulty purchasing their Mission: Affordable passes in a timely manner.  Because this is a critical mission, we are extending the deadline for purchasing Mission: Affordable Season Passes at $279 by 24 hours until 11:59pm on Monday, April 1, 2019.

In the unlikely event a customer is still unable to get the transaction to process online by that time due to these issues, provided that customer sends us an email at [email protected] BEFORE the revised Monday deadline, that customer will be contacted by Guest Services and will be allowed to complete the transaction by phone.  The email must contain the purchaser’s name and a valid phone number along with the name(s) for whom the pass(es) will be purchased.
 
We apologize for any inconvenience.  The bandwidth issues are in the process of being permanently addressed.  In the meantime, getting in on the ground floor of Mission: Affordable season passes is a worthwhile mission to complete.  We look forward to seeing you on the slopes next season!
 
Thank you for your patience and persistence, and thank you for accepting the Mission!

Sneak In Your Last Few Ski Days

Wisp Resort is holding a steady base, with the front side open from 9am-5pm Monday thru Sunday.  With minimal lift lines and moderate temperatures, this is the perfect time to strap your gear on your car and head on over.  Wisp Resort is aiming to close the mountain on March 31st so make sure to get your last few days of winter in and purchase your Lift Tickets in advance for discounts. It has been an epic winter for snowmaking with over 54 days of pumping water, making this the most snow our Mountain Ops team has produced in the last 11 years.  We spent 1,053 hours with our snow machines on since November and so long as mother nature allows, we will have a 108 day season this year, closing on March 31st which makes this one of our longest seasons in nearly a decade.

Spring Has Sprung

We have been so blessed with the number of Blue Bird days we've had at Wisp Resort this winter.  Today is no exception.  It’s no secret Spring has sprung and we are experiencing delightfully mild temperatures and clear skies.  That also translates into Spring skiing conditions so break out the sunscreen and t-shirts and enjoy!  While there are a few nights in the coming days that will dip down into the twenties or teens, there isn’t a prolonged window for snowmaking but those temps will help keep what base we have around a bit longer. With the front side and East Ridge open, still holding a 29 inch base, all open trails groomed but Face, and the last two evenings for Night skiing on the front side of the mountain - it is a great reason to hop in the car and head over to Wisp Resort this weekend! 

And don't forget to purchase your Mission: Affordable Season Pass for only $279 for 2019.20 Winter Season.  Click Here to purchase.

And the Snow Isn't Stopping...
