With an unwavering commitment to raising the standard in service, dining and lodging, it comes as no surprise that Deer Valley consistently ranks as one of the top ski resorts in the world every year. Nestled in the Wasatch Mountains 36 miles east of Salt Lake City, the private and upscale ski-only resort rose to prominence as the venue for several 2002 Winter Olympics events. Deer Valley is also known for being one of the last resorts in North America to ban snowboarding. Enjoy gentle slopes and lots of beginner- to intermediate-level ski terrain. Summer activities include hiking, outdoor concerts, mountain biking, fly fishing, adventure camps, and much more. The charming Main Street of Park City is just a five-minute drive away, offering plenty of restaurants and shopping to keep your vacation itinerary full.
