Skiing in Deer Valley Resort
Since the 1998 - '99 season, Deer Valley's skiing has extended over four mountains, with the addition of Empire Summit and its Empire Canyon ski area, previously only accessed by snowcat. Two new quads now serve the terrain, which includes Deer Valley's highest: up to 9,570 feet (2,917m). It includes a variety of trail levels, along with some of the resort's toughest runs with ten chutes, containing 45 to 60 degree pitches, as steep as anywhere in Utah, and three bowls.
Yet another way in which the resort leads the industry is in its grooming standards, which are known for their immaculate perfection - too immaculate for some! There are trails for all standards right across the resort's mountains, although some suit one category slightly more than another. There are easy, intermediate and advanced trails on every mountain.
First time skiers have a separate, protected beginners' area known as Wide West, which is accessed by the Burns and Snowflake chairs. This is located on Bald Eagle Mountain, the first to be reached from Deer Valley's base and best suited to beginners and intermediates. The new Deer Crest area has added a further eight trails served by a quad and an unusual new four seater gondola. A second mountain suited to beginners and intermediates is Flagstaff, although it also includes the resort's double-black diamond Ontario Bowl runs.
Most of Deer Valley's terrain will suit intermediate skiers, and the resort has two categories of intermediate level run. Normally graded 'blue square' in North America, Deer Valley offers 'double blue square' grading for tougher intermediate trails. Bald Mountain contains mostly intermediate and advanced terrain with Sunset the escape route for beginners who mis-read their maps. Free tours are staged twice daily for intermediate and advanced level skiers.
Deer Valley Mountain hosts meet guests at the base of the Carpenter Express lift in the morning or from Silver Lake Ski storage in the afternoon. There's a wide range of ski school programs with special women's clinics and programmes for children. Stein Eriksen, now in his seventies, the 1952 Olympic Champion, is Deer Valley's Director of Skiing. On-mountain dining is taken to new heights at Deer Valley and the resort is famous for the quality in this area in particular.
The Snow Park Lodge, the resort's main base lodge, houses the Snow Park Restaurant where Belgian waffles and eggs Benedict are served from 8 to 10.30 a.m., whilst the Snow Park Lounge offers hors d'oeuvres after 3.30 p.m. On the mountain there are two huts which offer hot drinks and snacks: Snowshoe Tommy's is located on the top of Bald Mountain and Cushing's Cabin on top of Flagstaff.
The Silver Lake Lodge offers four different eating choices: Silver Lake Restaurant, which is buffet style, Bald Mountain Pizza, McHenrys - a casual restaurant open for lunch and dinner - and the Mariposa, Deer Valley's premier fine dining restaurant.. Deer Valley is one of the three Utah resorts selected to stage Alpine skiing events for the 2002 Salt Lake Olympics. The resort hosted three Olympic events - the men's and women's slaloms will be staged on a black diamond trail called Know You Don't, the combined slalom on 'Big Stick'. Deer Valley will also host the freestyle skiing disciplines of high-flying aerials and bump and run moguls
Snowboarding in Deer Valley Resort
One of the few resorts left in the Western world where snowboarding is not permitted.
Deer Valley Resort Aprés Ski
Deer Valley has not cultivated an après ski scene of its own, with most night owls preferring to head in to Park City for it's many facilities. The resort's location only a mile from Park City's Main Street, which boasts more than 100 restaurants, bars, saloons and other night spots.
In 2009 a new law came into effect changing Park City’s and indeed the State’s bar scene. In the past purchasing a temporary membership was required to get into a bar or club. Bars, pubs and clubs now have an open door policy to welcome all comers over 21 and no longer require customers to purchase a temporary membership.
Salt Lake City itself is also easy to reach for an evening. Regular attractions there include performances by the famous Mormon Tabernacle Choir (rehearsals are free and open to the public on Thursday evenings) and an ever-increasing array of sporting events, such as games by the Utah Jazz basketball team. Several of Deer Valley's top restaurants including the Seafood Buffet, McHenrys and The Mariposa are open in the evenings.
