Welcome to Deer Valley

Deer Valley

Voted best ski resort in North America in 2001 and 2005 by SKI Magazine, the exclusive holiday resort of Deer Valley was againvoted the best for three consecutive years in a row in 2008, 2009 and 2010. Opened in 1981, Deer Valley took over the old site of Snow Park. Millions of dollars later, it has created a reputation for itself highly regarded among skiers the world over (and most probably has something to do with the fact that they don't allow snowboarders near the mountain). Deer Valley is located in the Park City area, Utah, and in 2002, hosted select events of the Winter Olympics. As its popularity increases it continues to attract the upper echelons; the levels of service in all aspects from accommodation, dining to grooming and slope maintenance continue to rise.

Utah has some interesting approaches to liquor laws, and often a night out for holidaymakers in Deer Valley will include becoming a member of a private club in order to buy alcohol. A membership will need to be purchased for a small fee, in the vicinity of a cover charge, and the discretion of the other members may dictate a night out.
