President's Message

We are looking forward to another exciting season of ski / snowboard training and racing at Wisp Resort.  We are pleased to provide this website as an effective way to communicate and provide information to our current members and prospective members. 

For prospective member families, the site will provide answers to many of the questions you may have about our team – including perhaps the most important:  “Why do all those kids in the DCWST jackets I see in the lift lines each weekend have such big smiles on their faces?”  Now you will know!  For any questions the site does not answer, prospective member families are invited to use the Contact page (HERE) and send us your questions directly.

As we proceed through the 2018 - 2019 season we would like to thank all of our parents and board members who have worked to create an opportunity for kids to train and compete at Wisp Resort.  To our new members, please keep in mind that the Deep Creek Winter Sports Team is a non-profit, parent-run organization.  We rely heavily on parent support.  Snowboarding and skiing are lifelong sports we all can enjoy, and being part of the team is a family affair!

We are always open to suggestions.  If at any time you have questions, concerns or comments regarding the team, please feel free to contact us  using the Contact page (
HERE). 

 Enjoy the site, and think SNOW!
