Boyfriend an i went for valentine's day and it was a lot of fun. However, the easy trails were not really all that easy! certainly almost flew off the slope in one of them! but we had a great time either way!

A good sized ski hill in driving distance from Columbus, Ohio. Lift tickets were a bit pricey for the day, but overall a good experience. If you can go in the evening, the hill really cleared out around dinner time! We will be back.

If your family loves to ski or board, SKIP WISP! We live in MD and have skied most of the resorts in PA, VA, and New England. Wisp is low-grade with typical PA/MD runs, but they charge VT prices. This was our second disappointing visit,...More

Sounds like you're looking to stay at the hotel. I would check directly with them. However, there is also the option of renting a condo or house through Railey Mountain Lake Vacations, which I would recommend exploring
