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.

  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

Deep Creek Lake Winter Revisited

 I have heard a lot of chatter from people on the East Coast and a lot of the country who are voicing their desires for springtime to blossom tomorrow (if possible!) with the wave of a magic wand. Here in Deep Creek Lake we had 36 to 40 inches this past weekend with another 20 inches coming in the next couple of days. My love for winter activities segregates me to a different perception of cold snowy winters, and I could tell by the sea of smiles I encountered this weekend that I am not alone. The amount of snow we are receiving here in Deep Creek Lake and the quality of powder that we have seen makes it all too difficult to throw in the towel for the winter season. I know there are some “powder junkies” like myself that look at a big winter snow storm in the same light as a surfer sees a hurricane and its  potential for bringing a large clean swell or in our case, some fresh powder.

You won’t be disappointed if you make it to Garrett County from your hometowns this weekend (some of who are still digging out from the last storm last weekend).  Rest assured that the roads here are masterfully manicured and most of all safe to bring your family for a visit.  I see the snow starting to fall this morning and I’m already getting excited about getting a couple of quick powder runs in tomorrow morning before work. Be one of the many who get out of the gates early and come chase the fresh snow during our self proclaimed “powder hour” and make sure you get your fill of fun before spring does officially take over.
