Ski School is the place to be at Deer Valley. Look for the reindeer and go on scavenger hunts. The reports cards aren't so bad either.
Sanity's Sake: Deer Valley offers up the ultimate ski experience. You are catered to from the moment of your arrival. Indulge! Fine food, exquisite service - and buffed terrain. Ski like Stein! Try one of the Specialty Programs - Exclusively for Men or Women.
Visitors are limited so the quality of the experience exceeds expectations. Deer Valley may have a rep for exceptional grooming, but they hosted the 2002 Olympic mogul, aerial and slalom events, so you know there's cool terrain to ski. Another World class event is expected for '03/'04.
to Ski: There are five different peaks to explore; Empire Canyon, Flagstaff Mountain, Bald Mountain, Bald Eagle Mt., and Little Baldy. Lots of gladed terrain, plus some of the best groomed runs in America. A few double blacks, but most trails are easily accessible and wonderful cruisers.
Sorry - no boarding at Deer Valley.
