Weather was the star – sunny all day with hardly any wind. With the reflecting sunshine off of the snow, we probably should have worn sun screen on our faces! When the golfers started at 12:30, we were all extremely excited to be on the golf course especially after this intense winter we have had. Even though the snow was almost completely covering the ground high fives and excitement were in the air.
We had 12 finalists, but the fight for the top three spots came down to Dave Campbell winning the bronze medal, Eve Sorace winning the silver medal and George Diaz as grand champion won a $3,900 membership to the resort.
The 9 foot tall snowman was hit once by Hannah Pekarck. She was given a free round of golf for hitting the shot of the day!
The winter months can be long and tiring. Since winter will be sticking around for a while, you should make the best of a chilly situation and escape to Minerals Resort & Spa! At Minerals, we have plenty to do to keep you warm ‘n toasty. And at Mountain Creek, you can actually enjoy the snow, rather than shoveling it away. All hotel stays at Minerals Resort & Spa come with complimentary use of the Minerals Sports Club complete with indoor and outdoor pools, a large fitness center, high-energy classes and plenty of activities for the kids. Book your stay by calling 973-827-5996 ex: 2 or visit us online at mineralsresort.com.
Happy New Year everyone! We brought in 2011 with lavish dinner spreads, champagne and lots of fun. Would you expect anything less? Take a look at the festivities at The Biosphere and KITES on our Facebook page. While you’re there, share your New Year’s Resolution with us! Wishing you the best in 2011.
It is so easy to get sucked into the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, but here at Crystal Springs, we slowed it down to stop and smell the… gingerbread! This past weekend, we assembled the largest Gingerbread Village in New Jersey complete with snow, trains, polar bears and of course, tasty treats! Roughly 30 pounds of candy was used to create our decadent, intricate Gingerbread Village. To see the complete photo albums, visit us on Facebook.
We hope you are all enjoying this wintry surprise this morning as much as us! We are especially psyched to hit the slopes this weekend!!
We have been super busy getting ready for Valentine’s Day at the Resort and lots of new photo shoots too! We recently shot our IT Director in our 72,000 bottle Wine Cellar for an upcoming editorial in Biz Tech Magazine which should be an awesome article! We also just took some great new food shots from Chef Michael Weisshaupt of Restaurant Latour! Check em out below – but don’t blame us if you get hungry!
We made it through another week! Thankfully it has finally warmed up a bit! Nothing beats sunny, 40 degree skiing & boarding! That is where we will be this weekend!

So Mother Nature woke up and brought snow to the majority of the Mid & Northeast including Crystal Springs! Although we did not receive the 20+ inches that some other regions did we do have 5+ inches of beautiful fresh powder snow here! Giving us a beautiful winter wonderland for the holidays this week and awesome ski & snowboarding conditions for all the ski & snowboarders out there! We are looking forward to an awesome holiday break with lots of snowman building, tubing, skiing & more!
There are even a few rumblings around that we may have another storm heading our way Christmas day! Anywho – enjoy some of our photos and we will be back later!
Thanks for reading!
It looks like we may have a very white weekend!! The first major storm of the year could bring us more than a foot of snow! The path of the storm seems to be somewhat uncertain but either way we are prepared to get snowed in! Mountain Creek will be full open tomorrow and our shuttles will be running our guests to the mountain. Stay tuned & stay warm!
