Mountain Creek Bike Park in New Jersey is set to open May 5 and there’s a ton on tap this season, including the Spring Classic USA Cycling Pro GRT / POC Eastern States Cup on May 20. Formerly known as Diablo Freeride Park, the Mountain Creek Bike Park is under new ownership for the 2012 season.
The resort boasts one of the longest lift-serviced riding seasons in North America, running from May through October each year. Discounted season passes are available from now until opening day for $279.99.
A little birdie told me element22 may be heading down to Mountain Creek this summer so if you see someone thrashing a sick carbon-fiber Santa Cruz V-10 on the slopes, there’s a good chance it’s the man himself.
