At Play Off the Slopes

At Play Off the Slopes
Deer Valley Content Hub Off Hill Activities
From old-fashioned horse-pulled sleigh rides to Ski-Doo–powered snowmobile trips over virgin powder, there’s more to do at Deer Valley than ski. If it happens on the snow, it happens here.

Sure, our 2,026 acres of ski terrain will keep you busy, but failing to enjoy some of Deer Valley’s off-slope adventures is to miss the true magic of the ski vacation experience.

Legal Weed in Vermont? Governor Announces Qualified Support

As skiers wait for snow, Legislature tackles burning issue.

The après beer is so much a part of skiing. But which resort will be the first to feature a slopeside marijuana lounge?

That might still be hard to imagine, but another ski state, Vermont, may soon join Colorado and Washington in making the sale of pot legal.

Vermont Gov. Peter Shumlin announced his qualified support for legalization in his State of the State address last week. And the state’s Legislature will take up the issue as it embarks on a new session.

DPS's The Shadow Campaign: Volume II

From Japanese storms to old-world Alps exploration, DPS finds the goods in its ski-film shorts series "The Shadow Campaign: Volume II."

This year, DPS returns in the second Cinematic series as they ski in Japan, Italy, and Switzerland. The dream is chasing deep storms, and 2015 delivered as the skiers find cold, relentless Hokkaido storms, and old-world Alps exploration. And this year, Stephan Drake, Santi Guzman, Olof Larsson, and Piers Solomon join forces for timeless pow-riding magic.

DPS is releasing a short ski film every four weeks starting September 22. And we'll have them all right here.

2015 Top Ski Towns: Jackson, Wyoming

The town of Jackson is known for its dismally poor male-to-female ratio during the winter. Guys, if you don’t like your 7:1 odds, well, too bad.

Jackson Hole is a pretty serious place. It starts with the ski area’s terrain, which
is gnarly enough that the management posts huge signs at the top and bottom of the Tram warning people to take it easy or they might get killed.

The Parent Whisperer

You can’t force a kid into being the next great thing, but you can do a lot of damage trying.

As an Olympic skier who now occupies the sidelines watching my own kids compete in the sport, I’m often assumed to have special insights about at least two things:

1. Who will be “the next Mikaela Shiffrin,” and

2. How, as a parent, to create “the next Mikaela Shiffrin.”

Craft distilleries continue their ascent across the mountain west.

Why One Skier Went East for Better Skiing

Brian Mohr was tired of sketchy avalanche conditions, so he moved East where there’s a growing backcountry community.

­In the ski world, you often hear stories of East Coasters fleeing west to find the Promised Land. They leave behind their humble, icy pasts for extreme, powder-filled futures, and never look back. But what you don’t typically hear are the stories about people who do look back—people who went west only to find that their Promised Land, it turns out, is still in the east. Brian Mohr, a photographer and backcountry skier now living in Moretown, Vermont is one of those people.

Powder Shots and Family Ties

Raising a family and building a ski area are tough jobs—especially at the same time. The Pitchers pulled it off at Colorado’s powder keg, Wolf Creek.
