I took advantage of the unusually cold, snowy weather in the east to try one of Maryland's ski resorts -- Wisp. It was an easy, pleasant three-hour drive to the site and within an hour, I was on the slopes where (best of all) seniors over 70 ski for free. The site is convenient and compact -- comfortable room, dining...

The following "highway robbery locker key" anecdote of ours is typical of our overall Wisp "Resort" experience. I just noticed two mystery $25 charges from Wisp on our credit card bill. I called, explained my concern and was informed that they were a result of unreturned locker keys. We only received one locker key for our room, I informed them....

Spent three nights at WISP as beginning skiers – adults and kids. Ski school was great for the kids, as were private lessons for adults. Rental shop was very efficient and all the gear worked fine. All of us were skiing by day two no problem. Trails were fantastic for new skiers. Kids loved the tubing as well! As for...

We have skied the East coast from Killington to WV, Utah and Colorado. Clearly those expensive, massive ski resorts have a much wider list of ski options than Wisp. However, we liked Wisp because of the close proximity and easy drive. The low prices for life tickets and the resort was amazing. Even Holiday Valley in NY is priced much...

Pros: We liked the slopes, one trail is nice and long, but they don't have a super easy trail for kids or for beginners. The rental process was crazy but the staff really tried to keep the crowd moving. The prices were very reasonable, even the cafeteria food was affordable. Cons: The hotel is old and it shows. The room...

We visited WISP on an outing with my husband's company. The room and the furniture were still dated, but useful. The size of the room with the king bed was exceptional. There was a coffee maker but the awesome housekeeper informed us about the "real" coffee in the lobby so we skipped the weak coffee in our room for a...

Went to Wisp Christmas day for three days with my husband and children (13 months and a 5 year old). Wisp pretty much has everything you are looking for when it comes to skiing, tubing, ice skating, game room, swimming, and more. The grounds were clean and the staff was nice and food was plentiful. No problem getting alcohol if...

I am giving this resort only two circles not because of any major nightmares but because of a simple "Are you kidding me!" Ok a ski resort without a wood burning fire place? REALLY! Come on Man! Now they had one in the 50 years plus of its history but apparently cost cut backs this year will not allow for...

My family of five spent four days and three nights at the WISP resort during Christmas. We arrived on Christmas Eve and obtained an early check-in. After we had unpacked our belongings, we discovered that we were on the pet floor. Guest services did a great job accommodating our request for a change of floor as my kids and I...

Stayed in room 324, which looks on to the slopes, and had a wonderful time. Friendly staff and great restaurant on site. Didn't ski, but someone in the party did and liked it. I did go tubing and had a blast!!!
