Overall

2.3

Conveniently located just over an hour's drive from New York City, Mountain Creek is known for its variety of terrain parks which spread across two mountain peaks. Its easy access means crowds can be quite an issue, plus snow has been variable in recent years as the resort sits in Northern New Jersey. Nonetheless, Mountain Creek is perfect for a quick ski fix!

Mountain Creek as an amazing environment. Their staff is very helpful and kind. They have always provided a great day of skiing and snowboarding. They have a wide variety of trails for every level. I first learned out to snowboard here and they did a wonderful job instructing. I definitely recommend this resort to everyone.... More

Mountain creek is one of the best calming friendly resorts on the east coast. They have great beginners slopes and great ski instructors. Also for the more advanced silkier and snowboarder they have some of the best ski parks on the west coast. Only an hour and a half from New York City this mountain is always a fun time for all. ...

I enjoy the night skiing. Also, the resort is convenient to get to from the new york metro area. This makes it convenient for after work shredding. The terrain is not the greatest but suffices. Also, the mountain is good for beginners.... More

Used to live in jersey. this was the closest hill we had so i learnt to ski here. thankful more to my mentor than i am to this place but it used to be a bit more oriented towards everyone and not just snowboarders.
