The only resort in Maryland, Wisp is one of the best places to ski near Washington and offers a good amount of natural snowfall as well as snowmaking. While the resort offers an even mix of beginner, intermediate and advanced trails amongst its 34 runs and 70 ha, the mountain feels mostly geared towards beginners. There are also plenty of off-slope activities in nearby Deep Creek Lake including dog-sledding, snowmobiling, sleigh rides, ice skating, cross-country skiing, tubing and much more.
