* Mountain Creek & New Jersey Record for the most days skiing in one season.

*  We could not resist skiing one more time.  On March 30th we headed for Belleayre Mountain to be first chair on the lifts and make first tracks to begin two great days of skiing.   It was so special we decided to stay another day and have something to eat at two of our favorite spots, the Peek-a-Mouse and Brio's.  The photos below capture these special days ending a wonderful ski season.

March 24th was a fun day and sad day for John & Buffy.  It was the last day of skiing at Mountain Creek for the 2023 season.  The Resort remained open for 5 days following Pond Skimming much to the thanks of the dedicated staff, Tim Stone, Louise Staley, Emma Katterman, Kinks Manager Greg Klause and his staff.  Needless to say we made it a fun time on the slopes and a chance to celebrate and thank our friends at the Resort for a GREAT season.

Thanks friends at Kink's for great food, drink & fun this season!

Thanks Tim, Louise & staff for providing 5 extra days of skiing

*  Sunday, March 19th was scheduled as the last day of the season on the day of the fun Pond Skimming competition.  Buffy and John celebrated another great day of skiing in Kink's hosted by Manager Greg (center rear)  and many of their ski buddies and the announcement that the ski season would be extended into next week.

Let the party (and skiing) continue!

St. Patrick's Day is a special holiday celebrated by Buffy and John by skiing with friends and enjoying some delicious corned beef and cabbage at home.

When the skeptics were saying skiing was almost over, the true believers knew that Buffy's Blizzard comes in March.  Mother Nature could not wait.  She celebrated the end of February with an early snow storm.

Our Snow Measuring Man does his job!

He tells us we got just over 8 inches of snow.

Valentine's Day is a special day to remind us that love is wonderful and the alternative is a waste of life.  We celebrate Valentine's Day by giving Valentine chocolate kisses to our Mountain Creek friends who work the lifts and do other work to make skiing fun.  Following skiing we had a fun Valentine's lunch on the deck of MC South with Rich, Bonnie, Lou joined by Big Teddy and Aaron.

*  Skiing in February continues to be fun.   The fun is meeting new friends like young August, his brother and Mom and helping Auggie learn to ski and the deck parties on MC South's deck with ski buddies after a fun day on the slopes.

Another Rotten Day in Heaven on the slopes at Mountain Creek even with Mother Nature refusing to cooperate with cold weather and snow.  It is more fun when the day of skiing ends on the deck at South with friends and couple of cold adult beverages.  Let the party continue!

The last snow gave us only 4" in early January

Skiing is a blast!  Not only today but in the past with many friends who we continue to see on the slopes.  One friend from Hidden Valley days who is back on the slopes is Keith Hala who we met on January 7th.

*  On Christmas, Buffy & John enjoyed their favorite Christmas present, skiing at Mountain Creek.  It provided an opportunity to continue the tradition of giving cookies to our lift attendant friends as thanks for their friendship and help in making skiing fun at Mountain Creek.

Mountain Creek opened on Sunday, December 18, 2022 and we were there to say "Hi" to our MC friends and ride the 1st chair on the Sugar Slope again.  We then visited MC South to celebrate the opening there.

We are waiting for Mother Nature to provide the temperatures needed to blow snow at Mountain Creek.  To try to get in shape for the ski season we visited BIGSnow on Wednesday, November 30th with our ski buddy Rich Calak and wrote a newspaper article about our visit.  We celebrated the day with an adult beverage or two and pizza at our favorite watering hole Toney's Pizza on Route 23 in Stockholm.
