Wisp Resort Voted Best Nightlife of Southeast’s Ski Resorts for 2008, by OnTheSnow

April 22, 2008 By OnTheSnow

The ratings were based primarily on readers’ average ranking, number of reviews, and specific comments made in OnTheSnow.com over the winter season. Nightlife centers around the Deep Creek area, and insiders tell OnTheSnow.com the Honi-Honi and Black Bear are two of the hottest nightspots. "More and more skiers and snowboarders are relying on the word of their peers when they make resort choices," said Mountain News President and Publisher Rob Brown, whose company publishes OnTheSnow.com. "We believe the importance of reader advisories will continue to grow each year and these annual awards provide a peek into their thinking." Reviewers were clear in their comments, beyond their nightlife rating: "The restaurant at the lodge seems to be pretty nice. Service was great and it had a good atmosphere. There was ample space in the lodge, everything was kept up well. It was really cool that I didn’t have to pay for a locker, just a deposit which was refunded at the end of the day… Wisp is a great overall resort. It is very family-friendly, and is very appropriate to bring the younger children too. The ski school is very hospitable and has some very good instructors too. Probably one of the best ski schools I’ve seen…" Wisp is an easy-going under three-hour drive from Washington, D.C., Baltimore, Pittsburgh, Annapolis, and points in between. Its long season averages 140 days. Ski terrain covers more than 100 acres on a comfortable 610-foot vertical. There are plenty of good intermediate runs as well.
