First day out on the slopes and it was oh so good! I am starting to love Wisp. It has a decent amount of terrain and little “hideaways” which are just sections of the mountain that people don’t usually go.

Stuck between holiday weekends and following an absolutely freezing Saturday, this place was EMPTY. I am talking ski right onto the chairlift as a single rider no lines. It was great! The cold temps paired with rare early east coast snow storms left the conditions basically perfect for early season. Dare I say, “no ice?”
I would call this mountain entirely “intermediate.” If you look at the map, it’s pretty blue and the rest of the terrain difficulty is pretty in-line with that. Warm up on the front facing blues, take down under over to chair 5 for a couple laps and then head over to North Camp on the opposite side – it’s awesome, especially on an east coast powder day.

These will get you the best turns on any day if you are an experienced skier. I think an intermediate skier can be pushed this way and excel here if he or she has to keep up with friends. Down Under is a fun run but keep your speed as it flattens out for a good bit a the bottom.
I found my way last year on a busy day right after it snowed 26″ in January. The mountain was crowded, but I happened upon North Camp which gave us ungroomed terrain and unlimited powder day fun – and I was there with the same type of people! No lines at chair 7 the last two Sundays I’ve been here… I could see it happening, though.
All in all, I will choose to go here more often. I was a Seven Springs warrior for a long time but nowadays you will find me at Wisp most likely. Recommend for families and groups of friends that have a range of abilities – they will all have fun together at Wisp Resort.
