Mountain Creek tends to get busy on even the weekdays, but having high speed lifts help to alleviate the congestion. The wait to get on the lift generally isn't more then 2 to 3 minutes. As the season gets going, Mountain creek will open the rest of there Lifts and Trails. As it was last year always busy but not to bad for the trails and lifts. Unlike other Resorts where your waiting 5,10,15 minutes or more just to get on their Slow speed lifts Mountain Creek has perfected it. Plus being the closest Ski Resort in the East, still makes for a great day trip. From Long island its about a 1 1/2 hour trip, NYC 45min and well you get the idea very easy to get to.
