Skiing and Snowboarding
Mountain Creek is only a 2.5-mile drive from Crystal Springs Resort. This adventure park offers many activities, but skiing and snowboarding is their specialty. Mountain Creek is the perfect place to learn how to ski or snowboard because of their professional trainers, manageable hills, and quality powder. The mountain’s four peaks also challenge expert skiers. The Vernon, New Jersey, winter temperatures and annual snowfall provide perfect slope conditions.
Mountain Creek upped their game many years ago with the addition of the snow tubing park. Families and large groups often split up between the ski slopes and snow tube park. The tube-only park spans five acres. The sessions are so popular that they typically sell out on weekends, so remember to snag tickets beforehand.
Two of the best places to snowshoe in the greater New York City area are under 40 minutes from the main lodge: Pyramid Mountain Natural Historic Area and Allamuchy Mountain State Park. Guests, of course, are always steps from some of Hamburg’s best nature and hiking trails.
For a couple of hours of ice skating, head over to Skylands Ice World in nearby Stockholm. Ice World offers open skating, lessons, and the popular Friday Night Ice Jam. Ice skating is fun, romantic, and great exercise!
