First Timers Guide

Your First Time Handbook to Success on the Slopes

Mountain Creek is all about family fun for all ages, but we know that if this is your first time experiencing the mountain, it can be a little confusing to enter into something totally new.  That's why we've created this First Timers' Guide.  Hopefully it will answer some of your questions so that you are a little more prepared for when you get to the mountain.  This guide will answer questions like, "How do I rent equipment?", "How should I dress for the conditions?" and "What should I expect when I get here?".  

Click on the links below to see the answers to some of more Frequently Asked Questions and be sure to watch our First Timers' video.  We'll turn you into a Mountain Creek pro in no time!
