Wisp Ski Resort

The Wisp Ski Resort, located in Western Maryland, is less than three hours by car from Washington D.C., Baltimore, Pittsburgh and Annapolis. For the Atlantic area, Wisp has a long ski season, (on average 140 days) which runs from before Thanksgiving into late March. The season is consistently long because of Wisp's state of the art snow making capabilities.

The resort has one of the world's largest and most efficient snowmaking systems with computerized weather and pumping stations.The resort has 32 trails and 132 acres of skiable terrain. The difficulty of these trails is spread nicely between three levels with 10 beginner slopes, 13 intermediate slopes and nine advanced.

Novice skiers and boarders will love the Possum trail, which runs for 1.5 miles from the top to the bottom of the mountain. Night owls of any level will appreciate that 90% of the trails are open for night skiing. In the near future the resort will be opening 44 more acres of back-country terrain.For the adventurous snow warrior, there is the Savage Half Pipe, Rail Park and the large Ford Built Tough Terrain Park.
