Deer Valley ranked Number One (again) by Ski Magazine

Admin posted Oct-2011

Deer Valley Resort has been named the #1 ski resort in North America by the readers of SKI Magazine for an astonishing fifth year in a row.

"No other ski resort has accomplished anything close to this," says Bob Wheaton, Deer Valley Resort president and general manager. "And I think the reason is that no other ski resort comes close to matching Deer Valley's amazing vacation experience. It's all because of our staff. The culture here is to put the guest first at all times, and our employees not only accomplish this every day, but enjoy it, whether working our chairlifts, in our Children's Center, our Ski School, our Deer Valley Resort Lodging and Reservations department, in our restaurants, offices, maintenance facilities, anywhere in our organization. My hat is off to our incredibly dedicated crew. This honor goes to them and I thank and congratulate the entire Deer Valley Resort team."

Aside from being named the #1 Resort overall out of 60 North American resorts, Deer Valley ranked winningly in many individual categories. Highlights included the Resort being given #1 rankings for grooming, service, weather, on-mountain food, lodging and dining. The Resort also received #2 rankings for lifts and access, and #3 rankings for digital presence and overall satisfaction.

More than 20,000 SKI readers are surveyed for its "Top 60 Resort Guide" by an independent research firm. SKI readers ski an average of 23 days a year. The ski resort survey is the most comprehensive and longest-running in the winter sports industry. Some of the individual comments that were made by skiers about Deer Valley this year were, "Service is top notch, grooming impeccable, food outstanding"; "Excellent customer service for the same prices as other resorts with no customer service"; They do everything right!"; "On-mountain food is insane! Service is exceptional"; and "These guys get what it means to manage the details. Consistent first-class experience."

The food is certainly exceptional, and very reasonably priced. You can eat rather well for the price of a drink at some European resorts.
because I'm so inclined .....

I think other resorts HAVE done to well, Whistler was number 1 annually for over a decade in Ski or Skiing mag and the fact that this bland, expensive resort (food is cheap but lift ticket among the world's priciest, 100 dollars a day at Christmas) which is a kind of smug posh Starbucks on a slope says a lot more about the state of North American skiing and the demographic of the people who read and bother to vote in Skiing mag poles than how good DV is. Check out the categories it was number 1 in - few down to the actual skiing, except for how manicured the slopes are. Not a no 1 ranking in snowboarding oddly - oh yes one of three resorts still sad enough to ban in.

My guess is the readers/voters are all 55 year old plus bankers,
estate agents, lawyers etc Personally it creeps me out not being able to carry my skis to the lift or open a door without some smiling drone doing it for me. But each to their own.

ooh good to get that off my chest.

I like to get one day there just for the experience, and to eat. But yes, they are the US equivalent of the Barbour and Hunter mob.
