  • This is a fantastic family mountain. We were out with 4 adults and 5 kids. The kids ranged in abilities from first timers to expert skiers. Wisp has a little something for everyone. If you want a nice family mountain on the east coast, Wisp is great. With views of the lake from certain runs and no lack of beginner terrain, we had a blast hitting some steeps and teaching the little ones about pizzas and french fries. Once the little ones had enough in the afternoon, the adults were able to enjoy the lights and do a few night runs on our own.
  • Great snow making capability. Season pass prices are reasonable. My only real complaint is the exits on the lifts could have been better designed- they should have been built to give a slight downhill slope to the next lift or trail. As it is, you have to walk to the top of the trail or the next lift.
