Another Opening Day in the Books

This past Saturday, December 29th marked the beginning of the 2012-2013 snow sports season at Mountain Creek.  The excitement was tangible as many a die-hard skier/snowboarder arrived bright and early trying to snag first chairs and first tracks at both Vernon and South Peaks.  Locals and non-locals alike came out to make turns, some satisfying the craving they'd been feeling for months and some experiencing something completely new.

Not only was Opening Day amazing for the sheer prospect of guests doing what they love in the height of the holiday season, but to top it off, a storm also came through with about 5 inches of natural snowfall accumulating.  There was something magical about beginning a new chapter at the resort with real snow flakes flying.  A fresh coating on the slopes made conditions ideal and the atmosphere a true Winter Wonderland.

Here are some photo highlights from Opening Day:

Mountain Creek is now open daily and weather has been great for snowmaking production, allowing us to expand skiable terrain rapidly.  Please check the Mountain Report for the most up-to-date operating information.  See you out there!
