    Hello,

    Several of us will be going to Snowshoe and Timberline late August. Snowshoe Fri/Sat and Timberline Sun. Is Wisp worth the extra night of the road trip (extra night motel and lift = $75 bucks each or so)?

    It would definitely be on our way home, but the question is after Snowshoe and Timberline, will our tired bodies and spoiled minds be satisfied with Wisp??

    Can't find alot of current information/trail reviews on Wisp.

    Thanks

    I would drive a little further to Seven springs, Wisp would be a disappointment after a day at Timberline. Seven springs is a completely different kind of riding, its all flow and jump lines.

    I would second trying to get to 7 Springs instead. Youll have a lot more fun there. Lift is super fast too.

    No it's not worth it, slowest lift in the world.

    While wisp has more vertical, I think the trails at 7Springs are better and the lift is blazing fast. Better base facilities too.
