Overview

Deer Valley is the ultimate in any skier’s dream- in fact, its skiers only – and it's posh. Deer Valley is everything you have heard about; rated the #1 resort by Ski Magazine readers for years, four and five diamond lodging, award-winning on mountain cuisine, ski valets that carry your skis from your car. Deer Valley is posh, almost like a private ski club – snowboarders are not allowed and lift ticket sales are limited to about 8,000 a day to assure everyone has a seat in their lodges, and outside on sunny Utah days. What’s not limited is the terrain, with five separate peaks spreading over 2,026 acres, 3,000-vertical served by 22 lifts including 11 high-speed quads and a leather-upholstered gondola. Deer Valley host World Cup aerial and mogul events including the 2002 Olympic Winter Games along with celeb ski events regularly – like the Deer Valley Celebrity Skifest each December. You will feel like a ski star too, because of the 5-star ski services. Deer Valley continues to improve upon its top notch service and perfect snow conditions.

It was an absolutely awesome experience. Intermediate slopes varied a lot in difficulty so beware of that. Otherwise, good food and best in class service. Tons of powder compared to other resorts nearby that were very icey.... More

This is our favorite resort. We go every year, if we can afford it or not. We love Deer Valley. Each year our group grows. Family and friends want to go after they hear us talk about it. ... More

One of my favorite resorts. Runs of all abilities. The report is known for the groomers, but has plenty of bumps, glades, and powder to choose from. Stein's way is my favourite run with views to die for. The meal options are gourmet as well ...

I loved it the ski school was great for my daughter. I live in Las Vegas a easy drive up to Deer valley, i would go all the time if I had a season pass. I lived in Vail many years ago and know how valuable a ski pass is.

The travel time is excellent and the runs are amazing. The thing that sets Deer Valley apart to me is the friendliness of the staff and the excellent service you receive there.

We especially loved the fact that no snowboarders are allowed. The food is also the best that we've had at any resort. Love the women's bathrooms too!
