Mountain Creek is the ski resort closest to New York metropolitan area, located in Vernon Township, New Jersey, on Route 94, 47 miles (76 km) from the George Washington Bridge. It offers 167 skiable acres on four mountain peaks, 100% night skiing/snowboarding, and the region’s highest vertical feet. Mountain Creek is also home to the region’s only true all-mountain terrain park at South. Its terrain parks have been rated among the best in both the east and the nation. Mountain Creek South has 17 terrain park trails, 2 high-speed quad lifts, up to 80 features peak season, and a freestyle oriented base lodge with indoor skate bowl.

Mountain Creek was owned and operated by Intrawest through May 2010. The ski area is now owned by neighboring Crystal Springs Resort, which returns Mountain Creek to its previous ownership group- the ski resort was originally two separate resorts known as Vernon Valley and Great Gorge.

As of the 2011/2012 season mountain creek has planned major expansions including a new lodge, zip line, alpine coaster, new trail, and America’s largest snow tubing park. Mountain Creek calls the plan “Re-Invented 2012” and has brought much attention to the public. Drop Zone Tube Park (America’s largest snow tubing park) and the Red Tail Lodge have been opened for the 2011/2012 season. The zip line and alpine coaster are scheduled to open in the summer of 2012.
