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!

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.

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.

 Ski/In Ski/Out Property-Wisp Resort

 

Ski/In Ski/Out Property-Wisp Resort. Ski in/ski out or slope side access have different personalities just as lakefront does. For example, you may be able to ski-in but not out or vice versa.  You might have to walk to the chairlift to get to the slopes but then you can ski back to your property. True ski-in/ski-out access means you’re actually skiing to and from your mountain property. Ski-in/ski-out can be located here at Wisp on the upper to mid portions of the mountain. Wisp Resort has condos at the base of the mountain near the lodge as well. The perks and conveniences of this style property is second to none. Imagine having a cocktail watching the game while rotating time on the slopes with the family. Boot warmers, ski lockers, washer/dryer with a mud room help keep everything convenient and easy. Come in from a ski sesh, strip and get into warm clothes and defrost by the fireplace with a hot cup of cocoa! When you get warmed and energized, hit the slopes again!

Here on Marsh Mountain surrounding Wisp Resort, there is a nice selection of different ski-in/ski-out neighborhoods. Boulder Ridge, Kendall Camp, Highline, Villages of Wisp, are all solid options that have different personalities.  Give Betsy Holcomb a call at 301-616-5022 on your next visit and explore the wonderful wintertime real estate options for both personal and investment opportunities.

Here is a link to a few townhome’s for-sale that offer affordability and slope access.

Snow Making Begins at Wisp Resort

 

Snow Making Begins at Wisp Resort. Yesterday afternoon Wisp Resort took a step toward the winter season by firing up the snow cannons and making snow. The forecast looks good throughout the weekend and through most of next week for snow making. Temps are hovering around 14 degrees this morning and will be below freezing all except one day in the next 10 days. The startup date for snow making is random each year but traditionally happens in December so don’t fear folks, I am optimistic we will be on the mountain before Christmas!  The target opening date is December 17th.

Crews from the resort are scouring around diligently trying to work out the kinks and bugs in the snow making systems so that they can inch toward the grand prize… Opening the slopes for all to enjoy!

Take some time and reflect on the wonderful memories that you have shared with friends and family here at our special Little Tahoe of the East! Best wishes for a fantastic winter sports season and we hope to see you on the mountain soon!Snow Making Begins at Wisp Resort Snow Making Begins at Wisp Resort Snow Making Begins at Wisp Resort Snow Making Begins at Wisp Resort

The Lodge at Wisp part of upgrades to ski resort

Renovation project began in the fall of 2015 and will continue through spring of 2018.

The Lodge at Wisp part of upgrades to ski resort

 

As part of a three-year $3.7 million-dollar renovation, wisp Resort recently announced a rebranding of the Wisp Resort Hotel which will be known as The Lodge at Wisp. The renovation project on the hotel began in the fall of 2015 and will continue through spring of 2018.

The Lodge at Wisp will welcome guests with significant changes and improvements to both the interior and exterior of the property. The upgrade will offer more contemporary accommodations, new outdoor Gathering spaces, and overall more modern and functional designs.

Work on the 169-room slope side hotel has totaled more than 1.5 million so far. A new entrance features a porte cochere with an outdoor gas fireplace and timber frame structure with stacked stone facade and lighting. The landscaping is highlighted by a waterfall, benches and day pergola walkway.

Interior renovations include an updated front desk and check-in area to compliment the new entrance. The 100-rooms on all six floors in the tower section of the hotel have been renovated, and 16 new king Suites have been introduced into the guest room mix. The remaining 69 rooms on three floors in the lodge section of the hotel will be renovated by Spring 2018.

Additional upgrades are being made to conference rooms, a new fitness center, exterior signage, courtyards with fire pits and enhanced landscape features. Construction on the current project will be completed in time for the ski season. Work will continue in the spring on a courtyard on east side of the hotel plus renovations to the lobby and the new front porch.

For more information about the upgrades call Wisp Resort, call 301-387-4000 or visit www.wispresort.com.
