Before we know it, all 17 resorts will be open and the 2012-2013 ski season will be well under way. There’s no better time than the present to start planning your winter retreat; if not for the pure delight in having a countdown, then to at least take advantage of some of the early bird specials. One way to save is to book your lodging in advance (not always the easiest to do so ahead of time when it comes to coordinating it with ski resorts being open, I know, but it’s still worth a try). Taylor Made Deep Creek Vacations, located in McHenry, Maryland (yes, the same place as Wisp) is offering several last minute specials even as I write – so if you’re sold at this point, click over to their site right now! If you need a little more convincing, please proceed
Taylor Made Deep Creek Vacations is the “area’s newest property management company,” with their office literally minutes away from Wisp Resort. They feature great ski in/ski out properties, not to mention unbeatable ski free/stay free packages.
Let’s get to the good stuff first. “What’s this free stuff you mention?” Under their Activities Packages, Taylor Made is offering three nights of lodging and three days of skiing for the price of two! One whole day on the slopes for nothing – I told you, you couldn’t beat it. Blackout dates do apply, including holiday weekends. More specifically, December 23– January 1, January 18- 20, February 15- 17, and February 22- 24, or any package that falls on December 11 or March 19 are excluded. Outside of those periods, it’s yours for the taking.

Wisp is Maryland’s one and only ski resort, with 132 acres of ski terrain. At this time, they’re hoping to open as soon as possible, gauging the weather and any upcoming natural snowfall. In any event, with a world-renowned energy-efficient snowmaking system, they are currently making snow at every chance. 90% of their terrain is equipped for snowmaking, so when the time is right, the slopes will be open!
Stay tuned for their opening day, and head over to Taylor Made in the meantime to get a start on planning your ski trip that promises to be unforgettable.
