Why Deer Valley?
Deer Valley Resort is the ultimate in designer ski resorts and is still a ski only resort (no snowboarders please). It prides itself on its customer service and manicured pistes, attracting America's finest.
If you are in an indulgent mood, Deer Valley's luxurious lodges will help relieve you of your dollars, although some of the condos are more reasonable (in a relative sense).
That said, being close to Park City Mountain Resort, Deer Valley Resort is an ideal day trip and as it is covered by the Three Resort International Pass the resort can also be enjoyed by non-millionaires. Its corduroy cruisers are good for all abilities and there is some excellent tree skiing.
