Deer Valley

It’s all in the details at No. 3-ranked Deer Valley, a fact not lost on our shrewd readers. After all, you don’t get No. 1 rankings in Service, Access, On-Mountain Food, Lodging, and Dining (and No. 2 in Grooming) without making darn sure all the t’s are crossed and the i’s are dotted. (Or, in Deer Valley’s case, the emulsions are properly emulsified and the reductions are sufficiently reduced.) Says one satisfied customer, “It’s hard to find something wrong when the resort constantly pays attention to every last detail to ensure that every guest has the best possible experience.” Once again, we’re salivating while perusing reader comments, from the “amazing turkey chili” to the “delicious pastries” baked in-house. Readers are less effusive when it comes to issues of the wallet (Value, No. 41). “Very spendy, but hey, once a year!” Visitors’ perceptions of the resort’s terrain continue to be grim, with Variety coming in at No. 35 and Challenge No. 40. But one reader thinks he’s got it dialed: “Deer Valley is so famous for its grooming that everyone skis the groomed runs. There’s no one on the ungroomed blacks. Except me!” With Overall Satisfaction coming in at a respectable No. 5, he’s not the only one pleased with the Deer Valley experience. “If I go to heaven when I die, it will be a demotion.”

Family Experience 

Dinner isn’t usually an “experience” per se, but Fireside Dining, at Empire Canyon Lodge, is the exception. Swiss raclette, leg of lamb, soups, stews, and a chocolate fondue to die for. 

Must Do

While you’re in town, Kimball Arts Center, in downtown Park City, is a ski-town cultural gem.

Deer Valley’s 14 Children’s Adventure Areas—yes, 14!—keep groms smiling from first chair to last.

At Deer Valley, we know that kids are not just small adults. When it comes to skiing, terrain geared toward young skiers goes a long way to teaching them vital skills—from turning, slowing, and stopping to getting the first little airs—that they need to become lifelong enthusiasts. Which is exactly what we want them to become. We bet you do, too.
