love the bike park! Majorly disappointed with the biergarten/bbq place there this year though. Used to be really good food and relatively affordable drinks. Seems like prices are going up and quality is going way down. Had an awful precooked chicken that was charred to death on the outside and almost frozen cold inside, grilling chicken is easy....... especially for... More

Bizarre that a critical review from 2012 is still the first word from Trip Adviser on one of the premier bike parks on the East Coast. My sons and I have had season passes since 2014, love it, and still have yet to ride all the trails. One reviewer says Mt Creek is not for kids, which may be true... More

Excellent stay, great staff, customer service, room, location. The only dislike is the pool that not on premises , outside. Even though it's heated pool but it would be much better if it was inside

Great ski slopes. Sad that not a lot of lifts were open though. Stayed at Appalachian and loved it. It was our first time but the person at front desk, Cheryl was super nice and friendly. Would definitely visit again

We spent two nights at Mountain Creek. We stayed in the Appalachian. It what was a beautiful resort. Our room was clean and daily maid service was included. The heated outdoor pools and jacuzzi was great after a long day of skiing. The ski mountain was also great. Everything at the lodge was well organized. The hotel staff was friendly... More

Good location for those who want to wake up a little bit later on the weekend or don't like a long drive to the other options near NY. The mountain is big enough to keep you busy when all the trails are open. For those used to skiing/snowboarding in big mountains or even bigger local ones, you should keep in... More

75 minutes from NYC is this hill's best selling point. Good for the intermediate to beginner levels, kids, etc. We went for the day. The biggest drag was there was only one chairlift to the top (its a small hill) and it was one where you had to take your skis off! Super annoying. If they would add a "real"... More

We had a great time even though the weather was not optimal ski conditions. The snow tubing is great and the skiing is really fun! Also the lodge is awesome and very clean.

LOVE Mountain Creek--great snow tubing fun for the entire family. Two hours of tubing and workers are genuinely helpful and fun. Two sides for tubing and a conveyor belt is easy to take up to the top of the tubing hill. We went on a warm day but if you didn't there is a fire pit to sit by. Easy... More
