Conveniently located an hour from New York City, Mountain Creek Resort sits in the township of Vernon. As New Jersey’s largest ski resort, its four peaks offer 167 acres of terrain options suitable for all skill levels. With three terrain parks, long wide-open groomers and night skiing, there is something for everyone.

Mountain Creek’s extensive snowmaking system consists of an impressive fleet of more than 1,000 snowmaking guns that covers 100% of the ski resort to ensure the ultimate mountain experience. The base of the mountain sits at 440 feet with a summit of 1,480 feet, making for a vertical of 1,040 feet that skiers and riders can access via the resort’s 8 lifts. The ski area also offers winter snow tubing.

In the summer, Mountain Creek transforms into a water slide and bike park offering visitors mountain actives all year long.
