If you don't have your shoving shoes on, war paint at the ready, and are not prepared to ollie over loose skis and entire families, you're not gonna have a good time. Mountain Creek is a meme resort with an unbelievable terrain park and that's why I am in love with it. I had a season pass here for the 19/20 season. I did not get one this season (opting instead for a SKI3 pass) because I, an 18-year-old NYC park rat, was a little worried about contracting diseases here even before COVID-19. Liftlines are like driving in traffic, if you try hard enough, you can merge anywhere! I have nothing but good things to say about the experience once you get off the south quad, I have no idea how the park crew does it. Climate change should be wiping this place off the map, but through diligent snowmaking and relentless feature-shaping and reshaping, they've managed something truly special. 7/10 seasons you almost never see snow on the ground, daytime temps are so high that every day rides like spring which is absolutely perfect for park riding. Rails and jibs are maintained beautifully, and I have progressed my riding more at this park than anywhere else. Other than that, the mountain itself is great for beginners, if you're looking for an all-mtn experience in NJ you're out of your mind. VERNON PEAK IS THE PLACE FOR FAMILIES, if you come to south peak with the kiddos, they count as features!
