EastCoasters and Mt. Creek

So I will be the first to admit I have neglected the site over the off season, but its getting close to that time again. And, I'm getting excited. First off, Mt. Creek is my home mountain, NJ all day!!, don't hate on my hill covered in ice.

Has Anyone heard of what there planing for this season?
And to all my VT Buds I will be up in Burlington hopefully a $hit ton.

Also trying to make a trip out west or to the VT dew tour Stop any suggestions?

Fellow Mountaincreeckian here also, although I really didnt ride much of South last year. I went every other weekend, than went every weekend the last 2 months of the season. I also ride VT. allot went to Mount Snow and a couple of times to Stratton. If you've never been to Stratton for the US Open make plans to go. I had a blast, got to ride with Louie Vito talk to Chaz Guldemon and just a good vibe.

I use to go there when it was mt vernon. Kinda want to go back but it's such a small hill you spend more time on the lifts then going down. BEst part is they're so close to the city but that also means a bunch of idiot riders will be there.

For me Mt.Creek is a good mountain to learn or improve, cause if you can ride on ice and in the crowd you can ride anywhere.

i dont understand why people constantly say this place is small. for the area, its big. the only way your going to ride biger is if you go to the catskills or farther north. i personally feel that south rides pretty big compared to competing resorts in pa as well.

creek is twice as big as my home mountain. i wish i lived close to creek.

yes i deff want to make a trip to mt. snow maybe jays peak too. And yea South peak isn't bad you just have to go on the weekdays and right at 12 when they open. You can get about 2 good hours in before every single benny from the tristate comes. There park is pretty good considering its in NJ, they had a small article in SNOWBOARDER last year. they could work on maintaining the takeoffs and landings, but i know that's hard when a million 12 year olds sit in the trail.

tell me about it last season I hit a small kicker maybe 10 ft. I should have looked at it first,but of course I did'nt. When I got over the lip I saw no landing it was like sunk in or something and smash!! You can figure the rest

mt creek use to be my home mtn but i haven't been there in like 4 years since i started coaching at mt snow and i have to say i dont miss it at all ha. i havent been the mt creek since they opened south so i cant really say if its bigger than carinthia but im friends with a good majority of the park crew at mt snow and they keep that sht on lock. any one who goes to mt snow this season and wants to ride let me know, im there allll winter once mid novemeber comes around.
