From Snow to Whoa!

Waking up this morning to half a foot of fluffy white stuff was so much fun! Scattered flurries continued to drop across the mountain until about 1pm today, leaving us with great ski conditions for the weekend. Lifts spinning until 9pm this evening, so plenty of time to take advantage of this February snow day.

It's All Downhill From Here...

Your phone is alarming a Winter Weather Advisory for 2-6 inches in the highest elevations of Maryland tonight and tomorrow - and THAT'S US!  Along with the snowmaking team adding to the pack later this evening and into the weekend, the sky is about to start dropping snowflakes on our helmets at Wisp Resort.  Snow showers are likely to hang around until Sunday, giving us plenty of reason to turn right, turn left and repeat down the slopes this weekend. With most of our trails open and 24/39 groomed - the mountains are calling and you must go! 


 Have you tried the new Wisp Resort App?  Go paperless with the interactive trail map, log your Vertical and Runs by GPS, find your friends on the mountain, access trail, grooming and weather reports easily and have the latest updates and information in your pocket at all times.
