Snow tubing!

Great experience! We took a group of about 30 students (college) here for a snow tubing evening, and the entire experience was wonderful. They have ample amounts of parking, lots... read more

I planned a spring trip to visit Wisp, after many many good experiences as a child. I wanted my Niece to experience the great times similarly in her youth. Upon checking into our room, the window heater was extremely loud and rumbling. I called the front desk, 3X... no answer. Then called the 800 # where I was at least... More

Dear Greg W, Thank you for your review of The Lodge at Wisp. We appreciate your comments. It is disappointing to hear you did not enjoy your stay with us. We sincerely apologize for the experience you had with the heater in your room as well as the rain deterring your plan to enjoy your second day of skiing. We... More

We are not skiers, and we do not particularly care for the cold weather (and all that it brings). With that being said, we were more than a little anxious about visiting this ski resort. We were reassured that our inexperience wouldn't prevent us from having fun. I'm happy to report, that was indeed true. We had a ball!! The... More

We went to Wisp for Presidents Day Weekend and although the weather was warm, we made the best of this unusual spring skiing during a winter month. My first gripe is the price - way overpriced for multi-day passes for those staying at the resort. There should be a bit of a discount if you buy more than one day... More

Sadly, Wisp's management has been performing poorly for several years. I have been a season pass holder for skiing for nearly ten years and spent much time at the hotel. This year, Wisp failed to blow snow in sufficient amounts, making it close before every other resort, even those in Pennsylvania with lower altitudes and less favorable weather. Warm winters...

Great experience! We took a group of about 30 students (college) here for a snow tubing evening, and the entire experience was wonderful. They have ample amounts of parking, lots of bathrooms, and their staff is helpful and it's not difficult to find someone if you need assistance. I wish they had some more signs posted on where to go... More

We have been to this resort twice now this year, first in Jan 2017 when I was over charged for lift tickets and rentals (which I took as a mistake) and spent 30+ mins attempting to get the overcharge returned. On the 2nd trip in Feb 2017, I knew exactly how much the tickets and rentals would cost and was... More

Diane, Thank you for your review of Wisp Resort. As we had previously discussed, neither our hours of operation or ticket prices changed during your visit. Both have been available and posted on our website as well as in our brochure since before the arrival of ski season. They can also be found on our daily mountain report that is... More

Went snow tubing MLK weekend. Premium day, so I expected it to be very busy and it was! We had a blast. Had a two hour pass for tubing and then rode the mountain coaster.

I highly recommend finding somewhere better because this was the worst customer service experience I've ever had. I paid for 2 days of lift tickets and equipment rental since I didn't want to waste time in line on the second day. However I came close to getting severely injured on the first day and returned my equipment within an hour.... More

If you're coming from D.C. Drive the extra hour for the best resort by far! Great runs, lots of natural snow, and not as crowded

Pros: awesome parking, ticket lines quick, night skiing was fantastic and not crowded. Cons: overpriced lift tickets for "premium" weekend with average skiing. When all runs are NOT open, you have no business charging "premium rates!" Also, there was only one legitimate black diamond (The Face).
