INTRODUCING DEER VALLEY
Little Baldy Peak, Bald Eagle, Flagstaff, Bald, Empire and Lady Morgan – the names of Deer Valley’s six mountains capture its epic nature. Known for its groomed slopes and uniformed ski valets, fine dining restaurants and boutique retreats, this is a refined, exclusive ski resort. But when the temperature rises, it becomes an outdoor adventure playground where you can hike, bike or horseride. Blessed with ‘wow factor’ terrain, Deer Valley is your ticket to alpine style in America’s wild western state.

Things to do
As you take the lift up and up past snow-dusted trees, anticipation mounts. At the top, ski runs of every shape and size await. Deer Valley puts you in the Wasatch Mountains, the site of Olympic runs and thrilling NASTAR races. It’s not all about skiing though. You can also try snowmobiling, dog sledding or sleigh riding across this incredible landscape.
Remember to pack some active wear for a trip to Deer Valley. Singletrack trails call out to mountain bikers. Snow Park Ponds are made for trying stand-up paddleboarding. While blue ribbon waters offer rich pickings for fly fishers. You don’t have to be a pro however, as there are plenty of guided activities and schools if you want to do something new. Whatever you choose, Deer Valley is the gateway to all-season scenery on a grand scale.
A luxury ski break doesn’t have to exclude the kids. Daredevil parents can take on the Deer Valley’s most challenging runs while little ones get to play in the Children’s Center. It’s also the perfect place for budding skiers to find their feet, with lessons on offer and fun-sized slopes to explore.
