When the winter draws to a close, and spring is on its way, the county wakes up from hibernation the only way we know how: saying goodbye to winter with a bang! The wisp has its own tradition for this time of year. The Beachin Weekend is a celebration at the end of every ski season as its last hurrah. With crazy competitions and the theme spread throughout the resort, this is one weekend packed full of fun. From music to the staff being dressed in attire seemingly straight from Hawaii, you will feel like the beach has come to the ski slopes for a weekend. The biggest event of the weekend is the cardboard box derby. Every year teams get together and build a creative derby car from cardboard. These designs range from the standard box all the way to crazy works of art. These are then raced down the bear claw tubing park lanes. While waiting for the craziness of the races, the lodge has a dj all weekend to spin some beachin music, and activities throughout the weekend. So if you are looking for snow at the beach, a crazy weekend of fun, or just an escape, maybe Garrett County is the place for you.
