In addition to adding numerous new features including chair lifts, terrain park additions and the almost brand new trails at North Camp, Wisp Resort has also updated their snowmaking technology, allowing for an increase in snowmaking capacity. A new pumphouse maximizes snowmaking capacity for Wisp Resort and therefore skiers and boarders no longer have to look to the sky for natural Garrett County Snow. Not only is the new pumphouse one of the largest in the country, it is also one of the most energy efficient in the world, featuring an airless snowmaking system that seems to perfectly mimic Mother Nature by laying foot after foot of snow upon the skiable acres at Wisp.
