Nestled in Utah's picturesque Rocky Mountain Wasatch Range, Deer Valley is unashamedly upmarket, offering exceptional service and fantastic skiing on varied terrain spread over four mountains. The resort appeals to a mostly upscale clientele and offers something for every skier, but boarding is not allowed.
Once a beautiful mountain where silver miners enjoyed weekend diversion by sliding about on crudely-made wooden skis, today Deer Valley Resort offers the highest standards of service and amazing attention to detail both off and on the slopes. The varied terrain covers 1,750 acres (708 ha) and was home to the 2002 Olympic slalom, moguls and aerials events, and the 2003 Freestyle F.I.S. World Ski Championships. The ski season runs from the first Saturday in December to the first Sunday in April (conditions permitting). Peak season is December 26-January 1 and President's Day weekend in February. Low season is December 7-25 and from April 1 until the end of the season.
