[R510R, Wisp]'s Lori Epp says, "While many resorts in the Mid-Atlantic region are closing down for the 2008-09 ski season, Wisp will continue to offer skiers and boarders spring skiing the first two weekends in April, weather and conditions permitting."

A $20 lift ticket will give skiers and snowboarders access to limited lifts and terrain from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. April 4-5 and 11-12, Epp said.

She said that more than 112 inches of natural snow fell in Garrett County this winter, and in addition Wisp converted more than 160 million gallons of water into snow.

Wisp's Mountain Coaster will run from 1 to 4 p.m. for $10 a ride. The Bear Claw Snow Tubing Park will offer snow tubing 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. at $10 per person.

Guests who show a valid daily lift ticket will receive $2 off a Mountain Coaster ride and snow tubing session.

Wisp Resort will feature spring activities on each operating day in April, including outdoor music, volleyball, and twister-on-snow at the bottom of belly flop from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. weather permitting.

Wisp also plans Easter events.

An Easter Sunrise Service will be offered at 6:15 a.m. Sunday, April 12. Chair 1 will deliver skiers, riders, and foot-passengers to the top of Wisp Mountain or guests can park in the mountaintop parking lot and walk to the service area at the top of Odin's Chute.

Children 12 and under can participate in the Egg Hunt scheduled at 1 p.m. April 12 on the front lawn of Wisp.

Freestyle skiers and snowboarders can compete in the last on-snow event of the season, the Easter Bunny Rail Jam. The rail jam will be held at 1 p.m. in the Pro Park at the base of Face, with registration at noon in the Main Lodge.
