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!

  10. Cross Country Skiing-    Herrington Manor & New Germany State Park have some fantastic area’s to explore! There are many other options!

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.

Snow Making Begins at Wisp Resort

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

No other Deep Creek Lake activity screams family fun like Snow Tubing at Wisp Resort.  Take a little time away from skiing or snowboarding and head down to Wisp Outdoors Adventure Park and get the family signed up for a fun afternoon of snow tubing.  This takes very little effort, other than bringing your enthusiasm with you, and a smile on your face.  Just grab a tube (the firmer, the faster) and head up the magic carpet to the top of the park.  Stop and look around at the top because you get an amazing view of McHenry Cove from that vantage point.  Don’t be intimidated in any way shape or form.  Plant your bottom in a tube and get  ready to slide and spin your way up and down the dump-dee-dumps to the bottom.  Try it on your belly on your next run if you want to mix up the excitement.  Don’t put it off another minute on your next visit to Deep Creek Lake.  Watch the kids’ smiles, on both young and adult, at the end of every run and see how they scurry with excitement to their next turn down the mountain.

Deep Creek Lake Wisp Resort Winter Sports. Okay folks; get your minds centered at the task at hand. Feel the cold winter, accept the cold winter, love the cold winter! After you get in the winter spirit, turn your focus toward Deep Creek Lake and Wisp Resort and get ready for the winter sports to begin. We have had steady flow of snowfall for the last week and conditions are improving at Wisp Resort. Wisp has had the snowmaking canons firing around the clock for the last couple of weeks to ensure that they have a solid base of snow to get the season started. As I look out my window from Long and Foster across the lake, my vision of the ski slopes is impaired because of the amount of snow we are getting at the moment. It is forecasted to keep coming down for the next few days, and then on and off for the next 10 days. Load up the car and the family, set your GPS for Wisp Resort and spend the next couple of weeks of the holiday season enjoying impressive powder. See you on the slopes.

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.

Deep Creek Lakes Winter Extension

 Deep Creek Lake Winter Extension. Well the groundhog has extended our winter season, which is fine by me considering I have not had my fill of snowboarding this year. Wisp Resort was jam-packed this weekend with happy skiers and snowboarders. The talk among the local winter sports enthusiasts is that it has been some of the best snow that we have had in decades. The recipe for that perfect champagne powder is cold temperatures, low humidity, and snow, snow, SNOW. This is something we have had plenty of. Bring your family to Deep Creek Lake and come join us and the winter extension. See you on the slopes!
