Welcome toMountain Creek Resort

This isn’t the New Jersey you think you know.?This is over 167 skiable acres and over 1,000 vertical feet across 4 interconnected peaks,?50+ trails of mountain biking, 10+ courses at Treescape Aerial Adventure Park and 27-holes of golf at Great Gorge, all just 47 miles from NYC. We’ve brought mountains together, used jet engines to blow snow, invented new terrain to help you learn easier, and in doing so, created a few Olympians and a world class?resort along the way. Winter?only comes once a year. Don’t waste it. Escape the indoors this winter, and Live Life Outdoors with us.
