Some parts of the country virtually shut down during the coldest season of the year, but Crystal Springs Resort and New Jersey Skylands residents embrace winter. Not only is winter in the Hamburg Mountains stunningly beautiful, especially after a fresh snowfall or hoarfrost, but the area comes to life with winter sports enthusiasts. Crystal Springs is home to two world-class New Jersey hotels near NYC, both of which are minutes away from skiing, snowboarding, snow tubing, snowshoeing, and ice skating adventures. Many New Yorkers who visit Crystal Springs during the winter aim to unwind at Elements or Reflections Spa & Salon, but they’re often surprised to learn about the abundant winter sports options near Hamburg.

Gear Up for the Outdoor Winter Season

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.

Snow Tubing

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.

Snow Shoeing

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.

New Jersey Hotels near NYC

Crystal Springs Resort has two world-class New Jersey hotels near NYC. There’s still time to book a fall golf or spa getaway before the first few flakes of snow arrive. Reserve an elegant dinner in the world-renowned Wine Cellar during your stay. Fall and winter are also the perfect time of the year to book a special event, whether it be a birthday party, bridal shower, or family reunion.
