Wisp has updated its operating procedures to help maintain social distancing and best practices on and around the mountain. This also means there is a limited number of people allowed on the mountain at one time. Because of this, we strongly recommend all guests purchasing your tickets a few days in advance online for downhill skiing and snowboarding. If you plan to purchase tickets on the day of, you will have to do so in person at the ticket stand, but there is no guarantee that there will be tickets available for you and your group. Face coverings need to be worn when in line for the chairlift and if you enter the lodge.

Tickets for the tubing park sessions will need to be purchased over the phone. We recommend calling ahead to purchase tickets well in advance for this as well. Face masks are also required at all times during tubing.
