Deer Valley, Utah

United States

The destination

The upmarket resort of Deer Valley is dedicated to skiers, being one of the few resorts in the USA where snowboarding is banned. This former mining town has been turned into a stylish and exclusive skiing destination, and enjoys a convenient location just 45 minutes from Salt Lake City's well-connected airport. It's an ideal spot for intermediate skiers, with the majority of slopes attracting a blue rating, with clear, smooth runs. 

The thrilling slaloms of Deer Valley were used in the 2002 Winter Olympics, and you'll find a calendar full of thrilling competitions and events during the ski season. Since then, then town has undergone many changes, with more upmarket chalets in Deer Valley, and newer luxury hotels. This charming town is also the home of a wide selection of world class restaurants, with fine dining establishment The Mariposa being voted number one restaurant in Utah by Zagat. There are also more casual options, with roaring fireplaces and rustic interiors, ideal for a cosy night out.

Set at an altitude of 2195 metres, Deer Valley has over 2,000 acres of pistes, as well as exciting off-piste skiing through the alpine landscapes. Step off the cable car, and you'll be able to enjoy the perfectly groomed slopes, with thick powder that gleams in the bright sunshine, and enjoy unforgettable views over the Wasatch mountain range.
