Deer Valley information
Want to be pampered? Deer Valley, a resort of superlatives, has thought of everything – from tissue boxes at the base of slopes to ski valets. Slalom, mogul and freestyle-aerial competitions in the 2002 Olympics were held here, but the resort is just as famous for its superb dining, white-glove service and uncrowded slopes as meticulously groomed as the gardens of Versailles. Note that there's no snowboarding allowed.
The lowdown: 3000ft vertical drop, base elevation 6570ft; 2026 acres, 27% beginner, 41% intermediate, 32% advanced; one high-speed gondola, 11 high-speed quads, nine fixed-grip chairs. Every trail follows the fall line perfectly, which means you'll never skate a single cat-track. Lady Morgan has 200 acres of new terrain (65 acres of which is gladed), well separated from the Jordanelle Gondola area. Only a prescribed number of daily lift tickets are sold, so powder hounds can find hundreds of acres of untracked glades and steeps, days after a storm.
Resort-owned snowmobiling ($99 for one hour) takes place 5 miles down the road on Garff Ranch; reserve ahead.
