This resort is skiers only. Mostly caters to the upscale and local crowd, but very nice facilities. I found the staff to be 50/50 on friendliness, most were willing to help, some were just plain snotty. Get there early for the best parking spots, and you can buy lift tickets and rentals in the same place instead of waiting on separate lines in the cold.

Rentals were the most expensive I've ever paid $60 a person for mid-range equipment so I recommend doing your researching and renting from a different shop. Lift Tickets for the day are $96-- average rate for Park City.

Slopes were mostly groomed powder. I would not recommend this site for beginner skiers, some of the easier trails were still a little challenging even for us (Well versed Intermediate skiers). I HIGHLY recommend taking the Homeward Bound Trail from the summit of Bald Mt, this is a Green Circle Easier trail but it has some of the most scenic relaxing skiing ever. Highly recommend for all ages and levels, very easy ride. SharpShooter Photographers are at the top to get your picture.

Food was great, I'm not sure who/why you would eat Filet Mignon on the slopes during a midday ski session, but if you want it they have it. Turkey and Brie sandwich was awesome.

Skiing Deer Valley was wonderful! It was especially nice not to have to watch out for snowboarders!

I visited Deer Valley after only skiing one day in my whole life. I was very intimidated by the first resort I went to, but I was really comfortable at Deer Valley. They had a great (but short) beginner hill to practice on with a super easy lift and friendly staff that helped you get on. I just practiced myself, but observed several ski lessons and thought all of the instructors seemed very personable, professional and attentive. I wish there was another easy trail that served as a better segue to the real green trails, but otherwise a fantastic experience with terrain for all levels. It was nice to not have to deal with snowboarders sitting in the middle of runs, and the level of service is really what sets this place apart.

We skied Deer Valley and it really is the best. I am a total novice who had to rent everything and take a lesson. Both of which were quite easy, fun and affordable. I am on the path back to following my friends on the slopes.
