MCHENRY, Md. (AP) — The Wisp Ski Resort in far western Maryland says it will open Friday, thanks to an early snowstorm.
The resort announced the unusually early opening Tuesday after the National Weather Service forecast up to 9 inches of snow in the region by Thursday morning.
Last year, Wisp opened Dec. 15.
General Manager Jerry Geisler says the resort has been making snow for three days. He says the additional natural snow is a gift.
