Winter at Deep Creek Lake & Wisp Ski Resort
Wisp Resort is Deep Creek Lake’s home resort, offering adventure and activities for each season! Most famous for its Winter season, Wisp Resort boasts 34 trails and 7 lifts, spanning 172 acres! Ski season usually goes from early December to late March, with a base of natural and man-made snow and a summit of 3,115 ft. Using the latest energy-efficient snowmaking systems, Wisp is able to make snow for 90% of the trails, aiding in their base level and open trails. Wisp hosts several accredited races and terrain park competitions throughout their winter season. In the Adventure Park at Wisp Resort, you’ll find the tubing park, operating 12 lanes with two magic carpets! Also located in the park is the ice rink and year-round mountain coaster.
When the snow melts, things heat up for Wisp Resort! Zip through the trees on Wisp’s zip-line course, offering five zips and two bridges. The Chipmunk Challenge course is a small-scale obstacle course with one zip, geared towards younger children. Wisp recently debuted their Spiker Monkey obstacle course, suited for adults and older children! One of the most unique features Wisp Resort offers is the Mountain Coaster, a self-controlled bobsled hybrid that descends 2300 ft down the mountain! One of only five in the United States, the Mountain Coaster is a popular attraction for all ages. Other summer adventures at Wisp Resort include downhill mountain biking and Segway tours! Wisp also has a lakeside rental stand, renting kayaks, canoes, and paddleboards at the Deep Creek Lake State Park.
For the avid golfers, Wisp offers two 18-hole golf courses. Fantasy Valley, located at the base of the mountain, and Lodestone, located atop the mountain. Fantasy Valley Golf Course, formerly Wisp Resort Golf Course, is strategically built around the natural formation of the mountain and forest, making the course beautiful yet challenging. Lodestone Golf Course has been consecutively ranked as the #2 Golf Course in Maryland by GolfWeek. Take in stunning views of Mountain Maryland and Deep Creek Lake while improving your game. Designed by 3-time U.S. Open Champion Hale Irwin, this course is in a league of its own!
Wisp Resort Hotel offers 103 suites and 67 guests room. The hotel is conveniently attached right to the ski lodge, and is situated at the base of the mountain. The hotel also offers a pool and fitness area. Wisp has made several recent renovations and improvements to their hotel and amenities.
The Deep Creek Lake area is one of few resort areas located in the mid-Atlantic region that offers a ski resort conjoined with a lake, making Wisp Resort truly unique in its own way.
