Arrive prepared to be pampered.
Of Park City's three resorts, Deer Valley is certainly the "poshest" in every aspect, with its several on-presmises restaurants and lodges winning national -and international- awards for excellence. Beyond the fine cuisine and luxurious accommodations, this mountain specializes in service -even on the slopes. The resort has six different mountains, 3,000 vertical feet, and 2,026 acres of skiable terrain. Yes, it is a ski hill, but don't worry; Deer Valley's groomers create some of the most velvety corduroy imaginable. Guests are greeted by staff, who wait to carry skis to the hill. They'll even put on your boots if you ask. Private and group lessons are available. No snowboarding allowed is allowed at Deer Valley.
During the summer, the the resort offers some excellent lift- and self-served mountain biking trails. With an elevation reaching almost 9,600 feet, these slopes offer a great reprieve from the sometimes stifling summer heat in the valleys below.
