I've been to Mountain Creek multiple times during the week/weekend. Naturally, going during the week to any mountain is much better. There is typically enough space on the slopes and the lines move pretty decent even on weekends. The only difficulty with Mountain Creek is (obviously also weather dependent) that the base towards the bottom of the slopes become very... More

Mountain Creek was the perfect get away for my wife and three boys. The park was great and the scenery even better.

Have been skiing here and going to the water park since I was young. As the hotels get bigger and the winters are getting warmer and warmer, the mountain is getting way to crowded. People from NYC hit the mountain on weekends and destroy everything in their path. Inexperienced riders and limited man made snow is a terrible combo. Make... More

Yep, I know. New Jersey & skiing don't really go together. But for an East Coast ski and snowboard experience this is a great and convenient alternative to Vermont. It's just an hour from NYC and it's got a nice selection of trails, a solid terrain park for the adventure-seekers, plus a pretty sweet lodge situation. It does get super... More

I came here twice for snowboarding. Snowboarding doesn't seem like my thing yet I'm more of a skiing type. I don't recommend coming here to learn how to ski or snowboard for the first time. It is very crowded and all the slopes are very steep including the bunny and magic carpet. I know people who come here but they... More

I treated my niece and her best friend to skiing for her birthday! I didn't know how expensive it was going to be because the prices were not listed in the website. It was worth the money because it came with a lesson but, it is something that I would only do once a year. The resort was very nice... More

Mountain Creek has definitely improved significantly over the years - upgrading it's facilities and staff. They are still overwhelmed on holidays but overall, this is an excellent choice for local skiing and snowboarding. They have wonderful instructors for the kids and they always have a deal - check online! This season all 4th and 5th graders can learn to ski... More
