Your Winter Wonderland – WISP


Have you ever gotten the warm & fuzzies in the great outdoors on a snow covered mountain? Well I did this weekend when a group of friends, old and new, had a day filled with adventure at WISP Resort in Garret County, Maryland.

My guests and I were welcomed by Lori Epp, the Marketing Director for Wisp Resort at Deep Creek Lake. She gave us our lift tickets, and tickets to try tubing, snowmobiling, and an awesome newcomer – the Mountain Coaster. Our day was set – I couldn’t wait to get begin.

We started our morning getting fitted for boots and skis and learning our way around the complex. Then it was off for a quick beginner’s lesson from our groovy instructor Ken. Most of us had never been on skis before, so the experience was pretty funny to watch. Just staying upright was a major achievement, which I am happy to say I did (without much grace though). Anyway, learning to ski was definitely an awesome beginning to this day.

    Definitely wanted to share my pics from my weekend adventure to Wisp Resort at Deep Creek. Six of us rented a spacious house, relaxed in front of the fireplaces, ate ourselves silly, and attempted snowboarding (I can scratch it off my bucket list!) and snow tubing. I didn’t get a chance to try out the coaster but I will definitely go back there to ride it. We actually arrived during a small winter snow storm, but it was the type of snow you just wanted to stand in and enjoy the cool air and fluffy falling snowflakes. So relaxing and I had a great time!
