New Feature Designed by “Frends” of Mountain Creek Coming This Winter

Vernon, NJ – January 17, 2010 – Secret ninjas at Mountain Creek and members of Frends sifted through all the entries – from the awesome to the absurd – to narrow it down to 3 finalists: Tom Buchtman, Lauren Barinsky, and Matt Nametko.

Each finalist put an incredible amount of time an effort into designing their features – 3D computer renderings and 3D models, all outfitted with Mountain Creek and Frends logos to give the voters the full effect.

In the spirit of community and keeping this contest for the riders, by the riders, Mountain Creek opened the final round of voting to its 20,000+ fans on Facebook where the design with the most “Likes” would be deemed the winner.

After a week of voting, the people had chosen a winner – Matt Nametko’s creative trapezoid ledge hybrid butterbox feature will go into production and debut on the slopes this season.

Matt’s custom feature will join a legion of nearly 80 jibs and hits at Mountain Creek South. Just a month into the season, Mountain Creek has over 50 features already installed making it one of the largest terrain parks on the east coast.
