After doing some research through the Maryland Department of Natural Resources, I discovered some very interesting information. Did you know that Wisp was not the first ski resort in Maryland? That honor goes to New Germany State Park in the 1940’s they had both downhill skiing and cross-country nicknamed “Maryland’s Alps”. This was a premier destination until about the 1960’s. Today the downhill slopes have been reforested but people can still enjoy cross-country skiing. Most people associate Garrett County skiing . . .
This weekend there are a lot of things you can do around Deep Creek Lake! There finally is enough snow on the ground to go cross country skiing, also the slopes at the Wisp should be in perfect condition for skiing and tubing now.

October 31 not only is a synonym for Halloween, but it does also mark the end of the summer season. Golf Courses will be closing these days, boat docks are being taken out of the lake, restaurants move their outdoor dining furniture back inside, homeowners swap their lawn mowers with snowthrowers and we are all getting ready for Ol’ Man Winter. However, soon enough we hopefully can enjoy all the great winter outdoor activities Garrett County, MD has to offer. . . .
You probably always feel a little mean when you are heading out to go skiing at the Wisp in Garrett County leaving your furry friend behind. Soon you will be sure your pets are having fun, too. They will get their own Spa! Hart for Animals is building a 12000 square foot facility on Bumble Bee Road near McHenry, MD. The first part of the building project will include a veterinary clinic, a boarding spa, a reception area and a . . .
