Wisp Resort Closes 2/25/17

 

Wisp Resort Closes 2/25/17. After another wonderful season of winter sports at Wisp Resort and in lieu of the recent warm up we have experienced over the last week or so, the ski slopes are now closed for the season. The fickle season has produced plenty of epic conditions but was starting to show signs of spring periodically through-out. My guess is that with kids’ sports/activities starting for our out-of-town friends and the conditions here stalling a hair, it’s not economically feasible to keep the slopes open. That being said, I can tell you that the winter season is not over yet so make plans to keep visiting this wonderful area and experience every ounce of every season. Thanks to all the staff at Wisp Resort for making the 2016/2017 season a memorable one!  Their Adventure Park will remain open on the weekends with ziplining, mountain coaster and lots more fun.  We hope to see you all soon!

Deep Creek Dunk Weekend Activities
Deep Creek Dunk fun!

Deep Creek Dunk Weekend Activities. There are 5 days until Deep Creek Lake celebrates our famous Deep Creek Dunk at The Honi Bar beside Uno Chicago Grill. Temps this week are going to rival spring, peaking at 65 on Friday. Speaking with our real estate manager this morning, we are not sure if it’s going to be easier/warmer for the dunkers or if it’s going to seem colder because of warm air temps. Regardless of the temperature, the event itself is the star and is always pure fun for event participants as well as onlookers whose numbers are in the thousands. Crazy costumes and cold water are all in good fun but raising money and awareness for the Special Olympics is the real reason for this wonderful event.

Deep Creek Dunk Weekend Activities

The Dunk may be the star but there are plenty of first class activities that piggy back on this popular weekend. Goose Bumps and Grapes which is presented by Uno’s bar and Grill, The Honi Bar, Arrowhead Market and Co-hosted by Taylor-Made Vacations and Sales on Friday, February 24 between 6pm-9pm. For a $20 cover, you can sample delicious wines around a roaring fire with Honi’s House Band rocking the crowd starting at 9pm.

Style Points

If you are sitting in your office dreaming of enjoying virgin corduroy ski slopes with your family and friends, I have one question for you…why aren’t you here?? After all, this is the time of the year when you can find the slopes with minimal traffic and fantastic conditions. I passed by Wisp Resort today on the way to work and saw two snowboarders on the first runs of Mainstreet throwing up huge rooster tails on the freshly groomed slope.  Passing the lodge area confirmed my thoughts on the “crowds”. They are non-existent during the week days and manageable on the weekend. Normally we see a huge peak of traffic during the Martin Luther King Holiday and then things taper off to a steady through February leading up to the Deep Creek Dunk on 2/25. This is also a great time to look at real estate in between winter sports and making merry. Call Taylor-Made Deep Creek Vacations & Sales to find a last minute vacation rental home or call Betsy Holcomb at 301-616-5022 to sit down and discuss the real estate options here at the lake!

Ten Things To Do In The Winter At Deep Creek Lake

  1. Snowmobile- Locals refer to it as “sledding” and it can be a very exciting way to see the lake and surrounding areas. If you are new to the sport, take some time to learn the basics on safety. Herrington Manor State Park has trails open to the public if you have sleds and if you purchase an Off Road Vehicle Permit.         Ten Things To Do In The Winter At Deep Creek Lake

  2. Snowshoe- Snowshoeing can be a blast with family and friends as well as a heck of a work out. Fork Run Recreational Area is a great spot to get started after a huge overnight snow. You can also check conditions on the lake and snowshoe across a safely frozen Deep Creek Lake!Ten Things To Do In The Winter At Deep Creek Lake

  3. Ice Skate- Wisp Resort has you covered if you want to try ice skating. It’s a little like roller blading but presents a few new fun challenges.  Try ice skating with the kids next visit!Ten Things To Do In The Winter At Deep Creek Lake

  4. Snow Tubing- What can I say about snow tubing other than it is a blast for kids and adults alike. I took my boys 2 ½, 4, 21 and 23 last week and we had a fabulous experience! Wisp Resort Snow Tubing.

  5. Ski- Wisp Resort is the “Little Tahoe of the East” that has a state-of-the-art snowmaking system. When conditions are good for making snow, you can have an epic experience there. Along with normal snowfall, Wisp can offer some of the best POW of the East Coast.Ten Things To Do In The Winter At Deep Creek Lake

  6. Snowboard- Nuff said about wonderful Wisp Resort. Bust a few airs at the snow park or shred the POW on your snow board!Ten Things To Do In The Winter At Deep Creek Lake

  7. Sleigh Rides- Visit the Circle R Ranch and go back in time to enjoy some off the path fun! Snuggle down under the warmth of the sleigh blanket with your friends and family to enjoy crossing through the snowy countryside.  What an experience!

  8. Ice Fishing- This is a sport I hope to do in the near future! When the lake freezes, you can see many fishing shanty’s across the lake. The productivity of winter ice fishing is famous around these parts. Here’s a link to get you started with a real-time forum.Ten Things To Do In The Winter At Deep Creek Lake

  9. Sledding- Grab a sled at Walmart and find you a hill to race down. Shouldn’t be hard here… Kids LOVE IT!

Bud Light Stage Wisp- Winter Concert Series-Wisp Resort. Stage Wisp has always been a huge hit in the summer time, offering live music on the gentle slopes of Marsh Mountain. People bring lawn chairs, blankets, family and pets to chill out watching live music under the canopy of warm summer dusk.

Winter time opens up another avenue for Stage Wisp as they bring the party indoors for the winter sports visitors. Tucked in the cozy Wispers Bar, adjoining the main ski lodge, you will find an eight-week concert series that will take you through many  types of music. Come in off the slopes and warm up your bones with a favorite beverage and order some snacks off the bar menu while enjoying good ole Western Maryland music.
