If you live in the New York/New Jersey area then Mountain Creek is the place to shred. The resort spans four peaks and has 1,040 vertical feet with over 1,000 snow guns to give it 100-percent snowmaking capacity—a nice statistic when Mother Nature decides not to cooperate. Just over an hour from Manhattan and central New Jersey, this place truly is a jibber’s paradise with a superpipe and 67 acres of terrain park bliss spread across 18 trails full of features.
When you’re looking to add some new tricks to your arsenal, the BagJumps are a great place to get them dialed in. These two 50-foot kickers into giant airbags give you the opportunity to learn those new dubs without worrying about breaking yourself off. Look for them behind the Red Tail lodge at the bottom of the superpipe and at the terrain park at Mountain Creek South. If for some reason you feel like skiing something other than the terrain park, Vernon and Granite Peaks also offer everything from novice to double black diamond terrain and if your daylight hours are booked the entire resort is also open for night skiing. When you’re done skiing for the day, trade in your ski boots for skate shoes and check out the indoor skate bowl at the South Lodge or hit up America’s largest tubing park, The Drop Zone, with 30 lanes to choose from.
