Deer Valley Ski Resort is an intermediate paradise designed for those who desire a touch of pampering with their downhill pursuits. Only 37 miles (60 km) from Salt Lake City and 3 miles (5 km) from Park City, Deer Valley was founded in 1981 with the intention of making skiing as easy, painless, and pleasurable as possible and it continues to do so in spades without being pretentious.
Everyone feels truly welcome and cared for, so finely honed is Deer Valley’s customer service. Restaurant-quality food in on-mountain cafeterias and Curbside valets collecting equipment at the base to avoid the effort of carrying it all from the car park are just some of the little touches to put guests at ease and feel valued.
Another stand-out feature of Deer Valley is being a skier’s only mountain. Yes, that’s right, snowboarding is not permitted. There is also a cap on lift ticket sales of 7500 per day to ensure an uncrowded ski experience. Lodging is suitably luxe, and delectable dining options are par for the course.
There is no village as such and the mid-mountain Silver Lake area is the central hub, and location of the central day lodge, plus fine dining, shopping and entertainment, a “ski beach”, family restaurants, and après ski bars.
Ideal for skiing-only families, groomer-loving beginners, and intermediates as well as lovers of luxurious accommodation, fabulous food, and stylish venues will adore Deer Valley. This resort is in a class of its own.
