Nestled in the Wasatch Mountains of Utah, a unique retreat awaits discerning winter travelers: Deer Valley Resort.
Deer Valley is known as the resort that revolutionized the ski industry by bringing the experience of a luxury hotel to the foot of some of the best ski slopes in the world.
Although others have mimicked the formula, Deer Valley still sets the bar – you’ll have to see how high for yourself!
Seriously Wicked SlopesOpened by the Works Progress Administration (WPA) back in the 1930s, Deer Valley’s slopes and trails jumped to national fame when they were selected to host the 2002 Winter Olympic Games headquartered in Salt Lake City (36 miles to the west). Yea – they’re that good!
Every year 300 inches of powder blanket Deer Valley’s six peaks: Little Baldy Peak, Bald Eagle, Bald, Flagstaff, Empire and Lady Morgan. Each mountain has its own thrills and challenges, from beginner runs on up to double black diamonds.
Best of all, you won’t be stuck waiting in lines. Unlike most ski destinations that teem with crowds every holiday and weekend, Deer Valley caps its daily ticket sales so slopes are never overcrowded.
Deer Valley is consistently ranked among the top ski resorts in North America not only for its slopes, but also for its guest services. Ski valets, on-site childcare, an award-winning ski school and a plethora of spa packages to choose from are only a handful of the numerous upscale amenities available.
Decades of hungry skiers have left their mark on Deer Valley. Today it boasts a vibrant food culture that The Original American Ski Retreat: Deer Valley Resort
rivals big cities around the country. Some tried and true resort favorites include creative casual cuisine at Royal Street Café, delectable treats and pastries at Snow Park Bakery, and a one-of-a-kind four course meal served fireside at Fireside Dining. You’ll want to ski harder and board longer just to get hungry again!
The Deer Valley ski area is located just outside the historic mining town of Park City, Utah. Home to the annual Sundance Film Festival, Park City abounds with year-round charm. After a morning exploring the museum at Utah Olympic Park, take a midday stroll through the galleries on Main Street and stick around for live theater in the evenings.
