News Update: December 10, 2004

It's Time for Serious Snowmaking at Mountain Creek Opening Day Saturday, December 18th at South

Vernon, NJ (December 10, 2004) - The forecast is calling for PERFECT snowmaking conditions here in Vernon New Jersey for most of next week, so
Mountain Creek is ready to have our snow guns blazing full tilt come Monday

SnowLab 26 represents the most powerful snowmaking system money can buy, and Mountain Creek can't wait to put all that horsepower to work next week to ensure perfect corduroy for guests eagerly awaiting opening day on December 18th at South. We'll be open from 9am until 9pm so make sure you have your season pass or Triple Play Card!

Manmade snow is not artificial or fake snow! It is indeed real snow. Snow crystals, regardless of how they are created, are minute crystals of frozen water. Manmade snow is however, more dense. We take our snowmaking seriously. Take one look at our burly snowmaking system and you'll agree.

We've added 4 new fan guns (snow guns) to our superpipe this season to guarantee the best possible conditions. With the right temperatures, each of these guns can convert almost 200 gallons of water to snow per minute! We've also upgraded our snowmaking abilities on several trails as part of our ongoing project, recently replaced 35,000 feet of snowmaking pipe on Vernon Peak, and relocated some pipelines, widening the usable trail space on Kyber and Indian Passes.

When temperatures permit, SnoLab 26 will be blowing all week long, plus there is natural snow in the forecast! The guns are out, the hoses are hooked up and we're ready for Monday's temps...its time for some serious snowmaking!

Don't forget, Triple Play cards are still available, that's three full days on the hill for just $59. Are you ready to make first tracks opening day?
