Snowmaking has begun at Maryland’s Only Ski Resort – Wisp Resort

Deep Creek Lake, MD — Old Man Winter returns to the Mountains of Western Maryland allowing Wisp Resort to start up their state-of-the-art snowmaking system on December 2, 2006 The tireless Wisp Snowmaking Crew stood poised behind the controls of the $3 million snowmaking facility known as The Pumphouse located at the top of Wisp Resort, elevation 3,115 feet.

At approximately 3:00 am, the temperature hit 27 degrees Fahrenheit and the humidity was just right to turn on the water pumps and switch on the snowmaking guns. From 3:00 am to 7:00 am, approximately 600 gallons of water per minute were being pumped into the system covering Belly Flop, areas of Wisp Trail, Bear Claw Snow Tubing Park and areas of the new expansion known as North Camp. At 7:00 am, the water volume was increased to 1,400 gallons per minute with the temperatures hovering between 25 and 28 degrees with approximately 62% – 77% varying humidity at the different elevations around the mountain. Wisp Resort will continue their extensive snowmaking efforts as weather permits.
