Of course this comes as no surprise to skiers of Deer Valley, who have long flocked to the Wasatch Mountain resort for its impeccable conditions, endless amenities, unrivaled cuisine and luxurious lodging.
This unmatched, guest-first formula has been a cornerstone of the Deer Valley experience ever since the resort opened in 1981. From attendants that assist in your arrival to complimentary mountain tours to limited ticket sales, they’ve made guest services and attention to every conceivable detail their top priority.
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 for their delicious cuisine, and recognized by Zagat Restaurant Guide, Salt Lake Magazine, Wine Spectator, the James Beard House and more. New for this season is Bald Mountain Pho in the Silver Lake Lodge, offering skiers authentic Vietnamese Pho bowls — the perfect way to warm up after a morning on the slopes. Elsewhere, cafeterias elevate the idea of on-mountain dining with crisp salads and tasty chilies, while rustic mountain cabins serve gourmet pizzas, proving 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, 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 Montage Deer Valley or Stein Eriksen Lodge, Utah's only 5-Star, 5-Diamond rated hotel. Both hotels offer ski-in/ski-out access, world-class spas and more.
