Mountain Creek (http://www.mountaincreek.com/mountain/) is the New York/New Jersey Metro area's closest ski resort. Located just 47 miles from NYC, Mountain Creek offers 167 skiable acres on four mountain peaks, 100% night skiing, the region's most extensive snowmaking system and highest vertical at 1040'. Mountain Creek is also home to the region's only true All-Mountain Terrain Park at South and Bear Peaks. Our 65 acre Terrain Park is nationally renowned most recently being named a Top 5 Park in the nation in Freeskier's 2012 Resort Poll.

Originally opened in 1965, Mountain Creek began as Great Gorge Resort on what is currently our Bear and South Peaks. In 1971 Great Gorge merged with neighboring Vernon Valley Resort, becoming Vernon Valley/Great Gorge and connecting our 4 peaks. Together, Vernon Valley/Great Gorge enjoyed tremendous success for the next three decades. It was THE place to see and be seen, on the trails or at the neighboring Playboy Club where the likes of Ann Margaret and Sammy Davis Jr. performed. It seems no matter what resort you go to today, you can always find someone who made their first turns at Vernon Valley/Great Gorge.

Date/Time: February 22nd Saturday; depart from Mountain at 4:30 PM & get back NYC around 7:30 PM & Brooklyn 8:00 PM. Please arrive 20 earlier than departing time. The bus will depart on time with or without you.
