Sure this place is close to NYC and has lots of townhomes, but here's what you can expect:
1) LINES - the lines here are unbelievable, everything from the tickets to the lifts to the food has a long line, you'll spend half the day waiting
2) CROWDS - most of the challenge on the mountain is avoiding the other people. the slopes get so crowded, you're almost guaranteed to crash into someone else. and dont expect this place to clear out until late at night
3) ICE - the snow quality here is sub-par. there are just too many people skiing the slopes
4) COST - this place is expensive! expect to drop around $70 in a day with rentals
All in all, I don't think mountain creek is a good choice. Unless you're desperate to ski, I would suggest taking the longer trip up north into NY state.
Pros: Distance to NYC
Cons: Crowds, Value
