And if you’ve been paddling for years, we offer private boating day passes.
Just a few minutes up the mountain from the base of Wisp Resort sits the the world’s only mountaintop re-circulating whitewater course. Whitewater rafting can be enjoyed by beginners, families and paddling enthusiasts atop Wisp Resort. Just watching?
