ASCI’s man-made river channel (located at the top of Wisp Resort in Deep Creek Lake, MD) is the world’s only mountaintop whitewater course, and can be enjoyed by beginners, families and paddling enthusiasts.It will be open from May to October, 2011 for guided whitewater rafting, riverboarding, kayaking and more. If you are just curious about the course, come up to the top of Wisp resort anytime and walk around the facility.
Test your timing, reflexes and teamwork on the world’s only adjustable whitewater sports venue that offers class I – IV whitewater in a “controlled” environment. The 1/3 mile artificial river features authentic whitewater rapids, and is the most natural looking and feeling course of its kind in the world. Large boulders, excavated onsite, frame the course and shape the rapids — this is not a theme park ride, but we are confident that Walt Disney would have been envious. ASCI’s raft “conveyor” conveniently transports you from the finish pond to the start pool, eliminating the traditional shuttle of natural river rafting experiences. A great way to try whitewater rafting, anyone 50 lbs or more can have an amazing adventure. Expert guides, instructors and even U.S. Olympians on staff ensure high quality, inspiring and consistent teaching methods..
