Weekly updates by Betsy Spiker Holcomb of Taylor-Made Vacations and Sales, Deep Creek Lake. We hope you are well rejuvenated from a long, holiday break! The slope conditions were great over the last few weeks and those who spent their time off here took advantage. Some big news from our household – Griffin will become a big brother in mid-June and he started walking between Christmas & New Year’s. The timing couldn’t have been better. His first major steps were taken at my in-laws home while the whole family cheered with excitement. To see him walk across the living room was magnificent!
Wishing You and Your Family a Healthy and Prosperous 2014! The Holcomb’s – Bob, Betsy, Brendon, Peyton & Griffin
The arctic temperatures are here and will continue to decline sending us into a deep freeze over the next 24-48 hours. The National Weather Service has issued a Wind Chill Warning for Garrett County and schools have already been canceled for tomorrow. From the NWS web alert – as low as 50 below due to temperatures around 20 below tonight, and winds west 20 to 30 mph with gusts up to 45 mph. Impacts: frost bite and hypothermia are a certainty if precautions are not taken. Icy surfaces will lead to poor driving conditions. Additional information can be found on their site and here is another good website locals use for weather http://www.garrettcollege.edu/weather/ (scroll down and click on Forecast, Garrett County, MD).
Some other important things to remember during winter advisories are your pipes and the possibility of power outages. If your home has been winterized and the pipes have been drained then I would think you have not much to worry about, but if your home has not been winterized and you are struck with a power outage it may not be a bad idea to have things checked out. To check for outages visit http://outages.firstenergycorp.com/mdwv_.html. We are all keeping our fingers crossed that no one loses power! On a brighter note, the high on Wednesday is 21°, Thursday is 33° and Friday is 42°. Just in time for the weekend!

So this is it, the last weekend of skiing at Wisp Resort in Deep Creek Lake, Maryland. March’s warm temperatures have encouraged us to put away the skiis, sleds, snowshovels and boots but there’s a pretty cool opportunity presenting itself this weekend with the help of the awesome weather brought by Mother Nature and Wisp Resort’s promise to keep us skiing until Easter.
Imagine this…taking runs on the ski slopes in 80 degree temperatures, then suiting up in your spring wetsuit to take the first passes of the season on DCL with your wakeboard or waterskiis. All in the same day, that is. I’m sold! A very cool proposition we’ve been given by some local thrill seekers. That’s where you’ll find me tomorrow. Slopes at 11:00 and lake at 12:00.. Happy Easter!
If you have the need for speed or just like to be adventurous, snowmobiling is a great way to see Deep Creek Lake’s countryside in style.

The lake offers 65 miles of shoreline, approximately 3,900 acres of surface coverage and is roughly 12 miles in length. A pretty large playground for the brave!
