are good that you've told someone in your
family all about us. It seems as though most

aunts, uncles and more who started saying,
"That sounds like fun! Can I come with you

That's why, in 2007, we've created the
chance for your family to experience the fun
for themselves, on our new daytrip:
This is a special day where you're
invited to bring family &
friends along for the
Many of us grew up skiing / snowboarding with our families. Some of us now have families of our own.
This unique trip is an empowering way to have a great time together, with family and friends, in an
atmosphere that celebrates who we are. Call up your brothers, sisters, parents, aunts, uncles, cousins (or
heck, even your grandparents) and tell them to join us for a day like none other
. Friends are welcome, too!

Special programs for kids: If you've got children, nieces, or nephews, this is a perfect day to bring them
out for fun in the snow. We're going to plan special activities just for the lil' tykes!

Exciting news: On the weekend of our visit, Mountain Creek will be hosting US Snowboard Grand Prix, as
some of America's top snowboarders compete live, broadcast on NBC!
