Deer Valley Resort
Thanks to our guests for helping us achieve the distinction of being rated the #1 resort in North America an unprecedented five years in a row, as voted by the readers of SKI Magazine.
Deer Valley Resort revolutionized the ski industry by being the first North American resort to provide the first-class service one would find at a five-star hotel. Deer Valley® offer's luxurious amenities such as uniformed ski valets, groomed-to-perfection slopes, on-site childcare and gourmet dining in three elegant day lodges.
Deer Valley Resort provides the nuts and bolts of a great ski vacation — unparalleled accessibility via interstate highway; local Vacation Planners to help with customized lodging, lift ticket, lesson and rental packages; an award-winning ski school; and the bounty of 300 annual inches of powder snow backed up by state-of-the-art snowmaking.
Rated one of the top three ski resorts in North America for the past ten years in a row by the readers of SKI Magazine (including five consecutive #1 awards), Deer Valley Resort never stops trying to better our guests' ski experience. This year the resort has invested in numerous on-mountain improvements such as the replacement of the Deer Crest chairlift with a new high-speed detachable quad renamed Mountaineer Express, upgrades and enhancements to our snowmaking system and grooming fleet and remodeling the Snow Park Restaurant.
We are excited to show you just how wonderful a Deer Valley Resort vacation can be and to share the “Deer Valley® Difference” with you.

The Six Mountains of Deer Valley Resort
Bald Eagle Mountain, elevation 8,400 feet, offers ideal terrain for skiers of all abilities. First-time skiers will appreciate the separate, protected beginner area known as Wide West, accessed by two chairlifts, Burns and Snowflake. Numerous intermediate runs allow skiers to slowly advance from the gentler Last Chance to the steeper Solid Muldoon and Big Stick. Advanced and expert skiers can challenge themselves on our 2002 Olympic Winter Games runs, Champion (site of freestyle moguls), Know You Don't (site of alpine slalom), and White Owl (site of freestyle aerials). The Silver Lake Express high-speed quad chairlift gives skiers and foot passengers easy access to and from the Silver Lake (our mid-mountain) area.
Little Baldy Peak, elevation 7,950 feet, offers nine trails ranging from beginner to expert. This is where the University of Utah Ski Team trains. Trails are accessed via the Resort's Little Stick and Navigator runs, or by the Jordanelle Express Gondola, located at the Mayflower/Deer Crest entrance to Deer Valley Resort off Highway 40.
Bald Mountain, elevation 9,400 feet, features mostly intermediate and advanced skiing, with one easy route down on Homeward Bound. Accessed by the Sterling, Wasatch and Mayflower lifts, strong skiers in search of steeper, ungroomed trails and Utah's famous light powder will find what they're looking for on the numerous North-facing slopes. Bald Mountain offers many of Deer Valley Resort's most coveted gladed areas such as Sunset Glade and Triangle Trees. Consult a Mountain Host or Ski Patrol for guidance before entering those areas.
Flagstaff Mountain, elevation 9,100 feet, and serviced by four high-speed quads and one triple chair, offers a full range of skiing for all abilities, including extensive gladed areas for advanced skiers, access to Ontario Bowl and some of Deer Valley Resort's most popular intermediate runs. Flagstaff is also a favorite with the kids, offering special children's runs and play areas such as Quincy's Cabin, Bucky's Backyard, Ruby's Tail and more.
Empire, elevation 9,570 feet, offers some of the most advanced, expert terrain at Deer Valley Resort as well as two intermediate runs that border the mountain. (There is no easy way down). The Daly Chutes will challenge even the most experienced skiers. The TNT (Tricks 'n Turns) Terrain Park, accessed via Little Chief chair, offers a variety of snow features useful as a teaching area for freestyle moves.
Lady Morgan, elevation 9,000 feet and accessed via Lady Morgan Express, features mostly advanced and expert skiing. From the top, one easy run, Pearl, and one intermediate run, Dakota, offer quick access to the Empire Canyon Lodge. This chairlift is easily accessed via the bottom of the Northside Express on Woodside run or off the Hawkeye run on Custer, both of which offer easier skiing. The Centennial area to the north of the top terminal offers 65 acres of expert gladed terrain for skiers in search of Utah's famous powder.
