About the Ski Resort

Wisp at Deep Creek Mountain Resort is located on Marsh Mountain which is 2470 feet at the base, 3080 at the summit with a 610 feet vertical drop. The 22 slopes and trails total 14 miles on 100 acres of skiable terrain.

The infamous Possum Trail is the longest trail at just over 1.5 miles. Wisp is home to the Savage Terrain Parks & Super Pipe, Maryland's only half pipe. Squirrel Cage and The Face are the most popular trails.

Night skiing is truly exhilarating, and Wisp offers night skiing on 90% of its mountain. Five triple chairlifts and 4 surface tows (2 ski carpets & 2 handle tows) operate daily as specified in the ski report.

In addition to the 100" average annual snowfall, Wisp has one of the world's largest and most energy-efficient snowmaking systems to be found.

The 100% airless snowmaking system is capable of producing over 36" of man-made snow in four days on 90% of our trails. Snowmaking operations at Wisp, with computerized weather and pumping stations is world renown for its efficiency! Others may have more pipeline or more slopes, but Wisp converts more water at higher temperatures than any other system.
