Lastly, to ensure crowd control on the busiest days of the season—which is essential to having a great time while Deep Creek Skiing—Deep Creek Lake Wisp Ski Resort has two quad chairlifts, five triple chairlifts, three ski carpets and four surface tows to keep the lines moving. The loading carpets that Wisp Resort installed were the first of their kind to be installed along the east coast ski resorts and are just what beginners need to feel comfortable when boarding a chairlift. Instead of having to get anxious when the chair comes around, beginner skiers can simply board the carpet and stand still while the carpet transports them to the top of their beginner hill.
