Ski Areas > US Mid Atlantic > Wisp, Maryland




  The facilities at Wisp are I think pretty good. I like the more isolated side runs the best. Says Joseph.

I love Wisp, it's my favorite ski area in the region. It's got great runs and a good lift system. I like the atmosphere of the place, it always feels good to come here for a day of skiing. Says Ron.

This ski area has a decent set of trails and a reasonable quantity of ski lifts. Wisp gets covered by an average amount of snow every winter. The
    8 feet of great snow that falls here yearly keeps the slopes well blanketed all through the winter. Having a total of 32 ski runs to ski on; there's a great set to please everyone. A 700 foot drop is unsurprisingly not that much,
but all the other nice characteristics of Wisp compensate for it. This ski mountain has 12 great ski lifts, and they are fun to catch a ride with. This ski area has an average part of black and red runs and an average fraction of easy trails. Maryland gets incredibly wonderful during snow season; it is the most grandiose time of the year for skiing or snowboarding. There's 132 acres of ski terrain, and it's all blanketed by fluffy snow. Scores of skiers from  
Somerset like to ski here. This is a regular size ski hill boasting a roughly average drop if compared to other mid Atlantic ski areas. Wisp has the greatest height difference among ski areas in a 25 mile radius. Wisp has a great range of slopes; there's absolutely no way to get bored here. Whether you're skiing or snowboarding, there are a lot of great spots for that around here. A great workout and getting out of the house for a while have snow skiers coming here. There are great comfy lodgings here, but if you donít have reservations, you may perhaps end up snoozing in your car.
