Skiing at Mountain Creek does not have to be expensive. Let's look at a few ways to save you some cash during your next ski trip to Mountain Creek.
Make some calls to the local Mountain, I know Mountain Creek is always changing up the weekly deals. Don't forget to check your local ski shop, McAfee Ski & Snowboard offers great deals on passes, so don’t overspend, contact them before you buy.
Not an avid skier or snowboarder? Just visiting in Vernon, NJ for a short stay? There’s no shame in renting your gear ! if you only ride a couple times a year, renting will save you hundreds of dollars. Most Shops also have great deals on seasonal rentals. This will let you rent high-quality ski and snowboard equipment that does not bust your budget.
Sitting down to grab lunch can break the budget at any ski resort. Mountain Creek has a ton of local businesses in the surrounding area. My favorite pizza spot is Pizza Pros , you must try the buffalo chicken roll. Another great place in Vernon, New Jersey for lunch and some red bull is the Mixing Bowl Deli . If you need a classic New Jersey Taylor ham egg and cheese, Lox of Bagels has oven hot sandwiches ready to go for $4.90.
If you make your reservations before others, there is a good chance you'll score some sweet deals. Also, don't jump the gun. Lodge and lift pass prices are almost always higher at the beginning and middle of the ski/snowboard season. Wait until the final month to get in the most runs and you'll pay much less than those who hit the slopes at the beginning of the season when demand is high.
Now that you know some of the best strategies for saving money during your next trip to Vernon, you’re ready to hit the slopes! Just remember, for the best service in town, call the ski and snowboard specialists at Vernon’s own McAfee Ski & Snowboard and learn how they can help make your next trip your best.
Do you like to go fast on the ski slopes? Yeah, so do I. One thing that can help make your skis and snowboards last longer is a regular sharpen and wax. I usual get my gear tuned up every 7 times I go to the mountain. This will help get rid of any scratches you get on the base of your skis and boards. After a long summer in the garage, you may see some rust on the edges. This will also help get rid of the crud.
If you are snowboarding in New Jersey or snowboarding the biggest mountains around the world, it is never easy to find the board you love. This question is always thrown my way and really is not an easy answer. The amount of new boards coming out each year can be difficult to keep track. Brands have new technology hitting the snowboard market each year. But it comes down to preference, one board may be perfect for an aggressive fast rider, and be terrible for a beginner.
If you are gearing up for a day on the slopes at Mountain Creek, you'll need much more than your basic snowboard/ski gear. Take a trip to the ski shop and you'll get an idea as to the breadth of sundries available to skiers and snowboarders aside from skis, poles and snowboards. When in doubt, pack more than you think you need. Let's take a look at exactly what you should pack for your next trip to Mountain Creek.
