“Skier's Paradise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 August 2014

Deer Valley is, without a doubt, one of the two best ski resorts in North America. The other is Vail, and I really can't decide which is best.

Deer Valley provides varied terrain, great groomy cruisers, small lift lines, no snowboarders, and the finest on site restaurant of any ski mountain on the planet.

A great day is first tracks at 8:30, ski till 1:30, and head on over to The Stein Eriksen Lodge for lunch, whether it be the game stew as an entree, or the full blown, world famous buffet that is to die for.

Great personal service; happy, friendly people; great grooming; great terrain; great food. What more do you need?

“Great Lodging, With An Amazing ski Mountain”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 August 2014

We stayed at Trails End Lodge, which is a cluster of condos near the base of Bald Eagle Mountain (part of Deer Valley). It was ski in- ski out, which was nice after a long day of skiing. Very near our condo was a room in which we had breakfast and after ski snacks. The lodges up on the mountain had amazing lunch food which make eastern US ski food pale in comparison. There were also nice restaurants on the mountain accessible by road which made good dinner locations. The skiing itself is amazing and I highly recommend this resort to any ski enthusiast plus families, as there are lessons and an Adventure Club for kids. Amazing resort!

“Love the Mountain!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 August 2014

Deer Valley is awesome! Skiing is fabulous but I was here in the summer and loved the hiking trails! Hike up and take the chairlift down or the reverse. If you are extra fit you can hike the whole way. There is so much to see and do here before and after a hike. You never have to leave this lovely resort. They have fabulous concerts in the summer too. You should though for a while. There are great things just beyond it in Park City!

“Summer fun too!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 August 2014

Deer Vally not only has great skiing but is a great summer destination too. The mountain biking trails are second to none. They have three lifts operating in the summer to take you and your bike up to ride a large variety of trials.

The mountain biking trails are well taken care of (as you would expect), well marked and Deer Valley provides a nice map which gives you information about the trail difficulty. You will need a good mountain bike with with disc brakes. I would say 90% of the trails are downhill. Bike rentals are available. Our family spent the day and had a great time! It has been a highlight of our summer.
