Considered one of the top ski resorts in the country, Deer Valley boasts a bevy of lodging options, more than 20 chairlifts, 101 ski runs and more than 15 dining outlets from casual cafes to fine dining. Plus, it is home to amenities like Mountain Hosts, which offer four complimentary ski tours of the property each day, complimentary overnight ski storage and an on-site licensed childcare facility. The resort also offers one of the largest ski schools in the country, with more than 500 instructors.
Recent visitors called Deer Valley "the Cadillac of ski resorts," praising the skiing, the outstanding service and the gourmet cuisine. However, many also noted that its reputation as a resort for the upper echelon of skiers makes it pricey. Powder hounds complimented the variety of well-groomed trails (especially the Ruins of Pompeii and Tycoon runs) and short chairlift lines, as well as the superb hotels and lodges with ski-in/ski-out access. Since Deer Valley limits the number of skiers per day, many recommend purchasing tickets in advance, especially on holidays. Deer Valley also prohibits snowboarders from its slopes, a welcome relief many skiers appreciated.
Day skiers can take advantage of complimentary parking at the Snow Park Lodge at the base of the resort. Park City's free shuttle service is also available for transportation to the slopes and lodges. Main Street is a 15-minute walk from Snow Park. The resort offers a variety of packages that include accommodations and lift tickets, as well as individual tickets and season passes. Full-day tickets start at $128 for adults, $89 for seniors and $80 for children. You can buy tickets online at the resort's website or at several locations in and around the resort.
