Wisp Resort is no secret to many Mid-Atlantic skiers & riders, as it is one of the longest-running operations in the region.
What They Say About Themselves
Wisp Resort is Maryland’s only all-season ski and golf resort, overlooking Deep Creek Lake from Marsh Mountain in the heart of Garrett County MD, the state’s westernmost county. With more than 65 miles of shoreline, Deep Creek Lake is Maryland’s largest inland lake. Wisp Resort is less than a three-hour drive from the metropolitan areas of Washington, DC, and Baltimore, two hours from Pittsburgh and a 45-minute drive from Morgantown, West Virginia and Cumberland, Maryland. By implementing state-of-the-art snowmaking technology and a cutting edge resort management system, Wisp has raised the bar for resort performance and efficiency.
Of the 32 slopes gracing Marsh Mountain, Possum Trail is the longest at more than 1 mile, and Squirrel Cage (black diamond) and The Face (black diamond) are the most popular. Although Wisp is the perfect spot for beginning and intermediate skiers, advanced skiers and boarders have plenty of challenges as well, with a full third of the runs listed as advanced or higher. In addition to the traditional-style slopes, Wisp also has a world class terrain park, for thrill seekers looking to catch air or play on the rails. Wisp Resort, which features a true ski-in/ski-out hotel, also offers night skiing on 90 percent of the mountain.

For those who want an even more unusual experience, Wisp added a Mountain Coaster to its repertoire of amenities in 2007 and it is open year-round! A cross between an alpine slide and a rollercoaster, the Mountain Coaster is only the fourth of its kind in the country and the second on the east coast. The familiar “click, click, click” of the rails as carts ascend a 1,300-foot long track is sure to stir the butterflies in riders’ bellies.
Wisp Resort has one of the largest and most energy efficient snowmaking systems in the world! Although changes and improvements may not be visible, be assured that Wisp Resort is constantly working behind the scenes to evaluate each component of our world-renown snowmaking system.
This year the snowmaking team at Wisp Resort is testing three new TechnoAlpin M18 Fan Guns--these portable snowguns are remotely controlled and are being tested all over the mountain. Wisp is dedicated to constantly improving and expanding their snowmaking capabilities!
While other resorts look to the sky for snow, Wisp Resort’s state-of-the-art snowmaking pump house can keep the resort’s 32 ski slopes covered with snow throughout the winter. Built in 2004 on top of Marsh Mountain, the $3 million system is one of the world’s largest and most energy efficient, making Maryland’s only four-season resort the ideal destination for skiers and boarders. The airless snowmaking system is the perfect complement to Mother Nature, which already produces an average of 100 inches of snowfall in the area each year. Wisp’s computerized weather and pumping station is capable of producing 145 acre-feet of snow per day—enough to cover Wisp’s 32 trails with more than a foot of snow in 24 hours.
