I was there yesterday and it was a circus North & South (south was worst).  Everyone from their kids and grandparents were there (no joke).  Conditions were kinda slushy, and too much traffic on the hill from people falling all over the place and every skier taking WIDE SLOW carves Angry.  Don't know how it was today but since it's the weekend and still have warm'ish weather, conditions may be the same.  If you have a season pass go have fun and stay in Granite (less crowded).   If you have to pay, go somewhere bigger or wait for the weekend to end and go on a weekday morning since HS starts Clap (assuming you're not in HS).

Granite is the place to be for the sollitude. And to tell you the truth I love Mountain Creek, even with crappy conditions. I just love to be able to get on the mountain almost everyday of the week.

Pretty sure they are in the process of building one on Big Bear at the top of Bear peak.

a lot of my friends don't like mtn creek because it can get crowded but the mtn itself is really nice (especially the park area). we like to go there when we want to go somewhere close since its only about 1.5 hour drive from us. hunter/windham is about an hour farther but they're pretty nice too.

I agree with Inksofmemories- Mt Creek gets way too crowded but the middle and Park area is really nice once you get away from the general area. This is the closest mt from the city so, it's not a bad drive for day trips especially when you need to get it out of your system.  Hunter and Wyndham is a bit further but well worth it as well.

Go to Hunter
If you go to Hunter MT go midweek it is awesome, zero wait to get on the lift and the slopes are pretty empty. I have work in the week, but if you want to really enjoy the mountain, take a day off and go midweek

On the weekend hunter mt is a zoo just like Mountain creek
Camelback is pretty good but busy on the weekends

IMO Mountain Creek is too crowded with kids and parents to get any decent rides in. Ive been there a couple times and its always the same. Not worth it.

Dude, that is ridiculous. People are nuts. I don't find creek so bad for the park, and early in the mornings on Sundays and around noonish during the week it is empty and nice. The past couple weeks have sucked though thanks to that rain/ice storm crap we had.

^that storm screwed everywhere up. Any mountain not committed to making snow to resurface wont recover well until warm temps come in.

How crowded does it usually get on Saturday's (especially President's day weekend)? 
I've only been to MC during the weekdays and it's been really good so far. 
Is the warm weather on Friday gonna mess up the conditions for Saturday?

last time i went during a christmas break weekend i waited literally an hour and a half for a lift ticket. the experience was horrible. lift lines were ridiculous. regular weekends suck there, its way too overcrowded....presidents day weekend i can only imagine will be the same. on the contrary tho, i have gone on non-holiday weekdays and its been empty and a good time.

as far as the weather i dont really know how it will be. the mountain should be soft cause it'll get above freezing. should be ok. i dont think its supposed to be nearly as warm as it will be today.

Someone should open up another resort in jersey. Basically just mountain creek to serve the entire NY metro area (besides a further drive to the catskills).

I mean, look at how many people creek brings in, if you could get half that or even a quarter, you could be profitable.

It was supposed to be 2-4 inches of snow, and then freezing rain.
 
It ended up being a foot of powder dumped on the mountain.  So much fresh snow, that for the first half of the day, I was more often than not... seeing only snow when I looked down at my board, and couldn't actually see my board.

If it hasn't snowed in a week and there is teen temps, if it has thawed and refroze, or late weekends without new man-made it'll be like that pretty much anywhere around here. Just have to pick the right time to go (obviously weekdays are better if possible - unless it snows over the weekend)
