Wisp Resort Activities- Garrett County’s mountainous region is infamous for its large amount of snowfall each winter (nearly double the snowfall of Fairbanks, Alaska!!) So, if you are a fan of snowy outdoor activities then what better place to go than to Wisp’s personal playground?

  • Downhill skiing/snowboarding - Boasting 34 well-groomed slopes and 12 chair and surface lifts, Wisp uses powerful pumps to create snow when Mother Nature is taking a break. Slopes range in difficulty from beginner to intermediate to expert. Need some help? No problem, Wisp’s expert instructors are there to offer lessons for all ages and for all levels.
  • Snow Tubing- remember how fun sled riding was when you were a kid? Experience that same thrill all over again at Wisp’s snow tubing park. With 10 operating lanes, you have the convenience of sledding without the harsh hike back up the mountain. Simply hop on a tube on one of the conveyor belts and up you go. Talk about a nostalgic thrill!
  • Cross Country Skiing- With plenty of gentle rolling fields to choose from, Cross Country skiing is not only a terrific way to get in some exercise and fresh air, but to truly feel the majestic beauty of our mountain area.
