The mountain offers more than 35 slopes, two terrain parks, and a beginner section with a magic carpet. There are 7 chairs total that allow of easy access across the entire mountain. Wisp Resort produces hundreds of inches of man-made snow throughout the season as weather permits. This allows them to keep the mountain up, running, and fresh - no matter the natural snow amount. Wisp Resort also offers a tubing park, featuring two magic carpets that take you right to the top, and groomed tubing lanes. Take a spin around the ice-rink, too!
