DEEP CREEK LAKE — Maryland’s Wisp Resort opened for the 2018-19 winter season on Friday, Dec. 14.

Regular operating hours have commenced.

The Mountain Park opened Dec. 15 with snow tubing and mountain coaster. The Mountain Park will be open from 4-8 p.m. through today, and continue with regular season hours over the weekend.

“We anticipate opening with nearly 60 acres of terrain on a base depth of 18 inches to 36 inches, and more terrain will open as snowmaking progresses,” Mountain Operations Director Artie Speicher last week.

Wisp Resort began snowmaking Nov. 21, and as of Dec. 13, a total of 56 million gallons of water had been pumped, equating to approximately 367 acre feet of snow while running the system for 319 total hours.
