We find that "self-catering" works best for our family, and Deer Valley Ranch, in the wintertime, is nearly perfect for this. The kitchens are all very well appointed, the cabins are cozy.
I love the staff; they are friendly, flexible, and helpful.
It's a good base for skiing at either Monarch or Cooper, both roughly an hour's drive from the ranch.
