Quick Spring Trips: Deer Valley, UT

The Hook
One of the best things about spring skiing is discounted prices, perhaps prompting you to stay at a property that you wouldn't consider during peak season. A place like the inimitable Stein Eriksen Lodge, for instance. At Stein's, your boots will be warmed each morning, and a ski valet will lug your skis slopeside, help you into your bindings and even give you a push into your ski day. Not that you need the assistance, but anyone who's skied with young children will appreciate it. Also, the new Lady Morgan Express has greatly expanded Empire Canyon, the best skiing at Deer Valley, which now boasts glades that arguably are as good as any in Utah.

Convenience Quotient
High. The Salt Lake City airport offers a full schedule of direct flights from most major metro areas. And Deer Valley is a nearly weatherproof 36-mile shuttle ride from the airport.

The Deal
The Bronze Ski Package: daily breakfast, lift tickets and lodging at Stein Eriksen's. Prices start at $262 per person, with a two-night minimum. Offered from March 30 to closing (steinlodge.com).

Don't Miss
The first gondola up Deer Crest. You'll have the slopes completely to yourself, and the king's corduroy will be grippy, unblemished and really, really fast. At day's end, head to the deck at the Royal Street Café for its signature blueberry mojito.
