  • We went to Wisp Mountain for a few days. My children 11 and 9 were signed up for half day ski/snowboard school. First off, everyone I spoke with on the phone were extremely nice and helpful. Every single time! Second, at check-in on the first day we were running a couple minutes late and needed to update some paperwork. Everyone at the kids school were so nice and Patient with me. My son who snowboards was not thrilled to go to, however that turned around super quickly. He walked right in to the back and when I picked him up he was smiling and couldn’t wait for the next day. My daughter who skis had a great time too. Snowboard instructor was Kylynn and ski instructors were Dylan and Merrill. My husband had an instructor for two days, Jim, who was also amazing. My children are already asking as to when we can go back again! Awesome time and experience!!
  • I happened to be there for work at the end of summer so the slopes were actually not very fun for me lol. I definitely will return to the wisp in the winter months. Very nice place. And very clean. Also has a gym, bar and lounge. Laundry room on the premises. Gift shop and ski supplies
