Wisp resort is one of Maryland’s 4 season resort located in the mountains of western Maryland. It has a summit elevation of 3,115” and a vertical drop of 700 feet.

Head there early in the morning, especially if you are going on the weekend or a holiday. The line for lift tickets and gear rentals can get quite long. If you are renting, I’d recommend heading to a rental shop outside of the resort. The prices are comparable and the lines will be much shorter. Once you have your gear and lift ticket ready to go, head to the slopes!

Wisp’s slopes are divided into 3 sections: the middle section (with the main chairlift), the left section (mostly black diamonds) and the right section (mostly blues and a few green runs). Regardless of which section you hit up first, you are guaranteed to have a great time.

When you’re feeling tired or need a break, head inside for a meal at the food court, or a drink at Wisp’s bar, Whisper. It’s a great way to spend lunch or end the day.
