Mountain Creek in Veron, New Jersey serves as the premiere ski and snowboard destination for the tri-state area. The east coast mountain destination has recently announced an exciting new partnership with Burton Snowboards to embark upon a new innovative teaching program geared towards beginners. The new program which is called Experience Snowboarding and Go Skiing, comes at a perfect time to capitalize on the momentum of Learn to Ski and Snowboard Month and is centered at Mountain Creek’s new Ski and Snowboard Progression Center. The newly established facility is part of the $20 million in renovations made to the resort for this winter season. Mountain Creeks is excited for the new center and partnership, to show this, they are offering two-for-one ski and snowboard lift/lesson/rental packages midweek throughout the remainder of January (excluding holiday periods), for the price of $99.99.

“Snowboarding and skiing aren’t inherently hard to learn, but what can make them difficult is that people learn them the wrong way. This new program we’re doing with Burton will allow us to share our passion for snow sports and the world class features we have here at Mountain Creek in a way that has never been done before,” commented Joe Hession, General Manager and VP, Mountain Creek.”

The Experience Snowboarding and Go Skiing program offers a unique learning experience that incorporates intutive terrain with cutting edge teaching methods that seek to foster progression while preventing frustration and fear. As with the National Ski Areas Association’s Learn to Ski and Snowboard month the goal of this new program is to get people off the couch and on the slopes — to promote an active lifestyle and appreciation of the great outdoors during winter months.

“Mountain Creek is poised to evolve the way new riders learn how to snowboard. With an interactive rental shop design and flow, a new lodge that encourages excitement of the sport and a terrain-based teaching system that speeds up the learning process, guests will engage more in the shop and out on-snow. Combine this with qualified snowboard instruction and the best learning specific snowboard gear in the world, experiencing snowboarding at Mountain Creek will be faster and easier then ever,” commented Jeff Boliba, Global Resort Director for Burton Snowboards.

Mountain Creek has partnered with Burton, the definitive leader in snowboard manufacturing and progression, and Snow Park Technologies, the recognized authority in snow terrain development. They’ve incorporated terrain assisted learning techniques that implement snow banks, small rolling bumps and even made a miniature half pipe for beginners to learn upon. Through these innovative features, newbie skiers and snowboarders can be easily educated to the proper body positioning nessecary to avoid injuries and progerss their skills in a rapid fashion than on a traditional slope.
