When it comes to the perfect ski vacation, it's the details that count.
That's why Deer Valley Resort has been focusing on the little things ever since its inception in 1981. From attendants that assist in your arrival to complimentary mountain tours to limited ticket sales, the Wasatch Mountain resort has made guest services and attention to every conceivable detail their top priority. Add pitch perfect slopes, acres of uncrowded terrain, unrivaled on and off mountain cuisine and luxurious lodging and it's no wonder why Deer Valley has been ranked the #1 ski resort in North America by the readers of SKI Magazine seven times.
To help you start planning your ultimate winter getaway to Deer Valley, let's take a closer look at all the resort has to offer.
It's no secret why skiers keep coming back to Deer Valley. One of only three "ski only" resorts in North America, Deer Valley focuses on giving guests the best possible experience day in, day out. That means the resort's friendly ski valets greet and assist you with your equipment each morning, while its 101 runs – most all of them named after original mining claims, some of which date back to 1868 – are groomed to crisp corduroy perfection for your carving pleasure. With limited ticket sales, fresh powder can last for days, especially in the resort's 930 acres of gladed skiing. The uphill capacity is equally impressive thanks to a network of high-speed lifts that zip you to the top of six summits, thus minimizing crowded lines and slopes.
We'd be remiss to write about Deer Valley without mentioning the resort's unrivaled dining options. Deer Valley’s 12 restaurants are renowned and lauded for their delicious cuisine, consistently winning #1 ratings for on-mountain dining from the readers of SKI Magazine and multiple awards and designations from prestigious sources such as the Zagat Restaurant Guide, Salt Lake Magazine, Wine Spectator, the James Beard House and more. From cafeterias that elevate the idea of on-mountain dining with crisp salads and tasty chilies to rustic mountain cabins serving gourmet pizzas, Deer Valley is just as serious about their food as they are their snow. Don't miss the legendary Zagat-rated Seafood Buffet at the Snow Park Lodge, where you'll nosh on sustainable seafood plucked straight from the Pacific and paired with fine wine and cocktails.
Sticking to their philosophy of offering a complete vacation experience, Deer Valley features some of ski country's finest lodging options. From grand western style lodges to luxurious private homes and condominiums, Deer Valley's Vacation Planners can find you the perfect place to stay. For an unrivaled experience, however, we recommend either the St. Regis Deer Valley, Montage Deer Valley, or Stein Eriksen Lodge, Park City’s only 5-Star, 5-Diamond rated hotel. All three hotels offer ski-in/ski-out access, world-class spas and more.
Since the 2002 Salt Lake City Winter Olympics, Deer Valley has been attracting elite competitive skiers. That tradition continued this year with the recently concluded 2015 Visa Freestyle International, which saw the world's best aerial and mogul skiers compete under the lights on White Owl and Champion ski runs.
