With Wisp Resort’s opening weekend just a few days away, it only makes sense that Mother Nature would add some fresh powder to their snowmaking efforts!
The Deep Creek Lake area is currently in the midst of lake effect snow system – projected to drop anywhere from 3-8 inches! Snow started early this morning and is supposed to continue through Wednesday afternoon. We’re almost up to two inches after a few hours, so we’re hoping that we’ll luck out and see 6-8 inches! It’s going to be a fabulous weekend at Deep Creek Lake with everything perfectly blanketed and Wisp Resort opening!
Wisp started blowing snow late last week hoping to keep their tentative opening date of Saturday December 16. They made tremendous progress over the weekend, pumping an astounding 37 million gallons of water and logging in over 151 hours of operation and have just announced they’re now opening Friday December 15!! They won’t have all the trails open, but they will most likely have at least one slope f
or each skill level. The tubing park should also be open!! With perfectly groomed lanes, two magic carpets to carry you to the top, and several ways to tube down, it’s the perfect activity for all ages. You can also enjoy th
e outdoor ice-skating rink and the mountain coaster!! They’re even offering a brand new program for new skiers that’s FREE!
If you’re looking to make a last minute trip up to the lake to hit the slopes or simply enjoy a snowy weekend – we’ve extended our 3rd Night Free Special to include this weekend!! Stay an extra night on us at select homes – including several close to the slopes and some with direct access to the slopes. Search properties online or call us at the office to take advantage of this awesome opportunity!
