Bing Crosby isn’t the only one who dreams of a white Christmas. If you live in the upper Northeast dreams are coming true early with plenty of snow falling thanks to Hurricane Sandy and the beginning of the winter season. This is great news for those outdoor enthusiasts who look forward to the natural escape of hitting the slopes early and skiing late into spring.
Luckily, for those of us who have nightmares about falling down a black diamond run as we disembark the chair lift, Wisp Resort has plenty of fun-in-the-snow activities that keep us from having to have long planks strapped to our feet subsequently confining our feet to a very rigid form of footwear.
If, however, you prefer to stay a little more ‘grounded’ then there is a fantastic snow tubing hill for your enjoyment. PLUS, you don’t have to carry your tube back up the hill with a jaunty hike OR hover high above the hillside on a swaying-in-the-wind chairlift! Simply step onto a Conveyor Carpet and up you go.
Find all the joys of childhood sledding without the effort to take a second run. This new and fast growing winter sport is suitable for all age groups and doesn’t require expensive equipment. Do remember to dress warmly and remember to pocket a kerchief to wipe the tears from your eyes after a cold, exhilarating whoosh down 750 feet of groomed tubing lanes.
Deep Creek Lake Maryland has so many things to do and places to go that you won’t have a chance to be succumbed by cabin fever. Of course, if that’s your intent and you want to volunteer to keep the fire blazing warm and the cocoa steaming hot on the stove, then you’ll delight in the vacation rentals located close to the resort.
No matter what your pleasure once winter has won the seasonal battle of wills, Deep Creek Lake is where you’ll find warmth, friendly people and plenty of ways to burn off those extra holiday calories.
