As soon as the first snow falls, Deep Creek Lake residents get out their boards, skis, and snowmobiles as the anticipation increases for winter adventure.  Deep Creek Lake is home to Maryland’s only ski resort, Wisp Mountain Resort.  There, locals and vacationers alike join to create lasting winter memories.

Mountain Coaster

Jump on to this alpine slide, roller coaster hybrid on the Wisp Resort Mountain!  This coaster consists of a 1,300 ft. uphill track and over 3,500 ft. of downhill action.  They have even installed an automated camera to capture all of your vacation memories.  I must see on your next vacation to Deep Creek Lake!

Ice Skating

You don’t have to go out onto the lake to have some frozen water fun!  Wisp Resort features the only ice rink in Garrett County.  This 50’ by 85’ oval Ice Rink is equipped with benches, twinkling lights for the winter spirit, and a bonfire area to cozy up with some hot chocolate after a long active day.

Cross Country Skiing

Downhill skiing not your thing?  Take a rejuvenating cross country skiing trip across a 50 km trail consisting of various terrains for every cross country skier.   Cross Country equipment is available for rent if you don’t have your own equipment.


Even with so much action and adventure going on, there is still time to take in the natural beauty of Deep Creek Lake.  Snowshoeing is available for the hiker who wants that refreshing mountain air without the downhill action of skiing.  Rentals are available at Wisp Resort.
