This was our second time in Deer Valley. From sporadic visits to Vermont when I was younger, this is truly a giant step up to 5-star service at Deer Valley. From the excellent instructors at ski school and camp for the children, the beautifully groomed trails, gourmet lunch date with my husband at the Royal Street Cafe, everything is perfect! The level of attention you get from everyone at the resort is outstanding. One instructor told me that DV's CEO is on the slopes every day making sure everything is running as expected and it shows! An immense amount of attendants everywhere to help you on every step, unload, ski-lifts, trail maps, restaurants, etc… and they were all very educated, well-mannered, interesting people. Thanks for a great family ski vacation!

We love skiing at Deer Valley. Nice mountain and no boarders. Service is wonderful all over the resort. The complimentary overnight ski storage is a nice perk.
Their ski school is an excellent value.

We always spend one day at Deer Valley as a special treat as it has always been a top notch resort with beautiful runs, amazing food and stellar customer service. Two out of the three remain intact, but it seemed the service has degraded somewhat. In the past lift operators, hosts, restaurant workers, etc were always friendly and greeted you enthusiastically making you feel special (at $114 a pop you want to feel a little special!). There was barely eye contact with the lift operators, there didn't seem to be as many hosts visible to help with questions, and the restaurant workers seemed distracted. It is still tough to beat the beautiful runs, especially groomed in the hard packed conditions.

We like that there is no snowboarding, they have the most lift capacity and snow making capacity when compared to size. It is close enough to Park City for the free public transit buses. They have free overnight ski storage! And, they give a discount to Military Active, Reserve, Retired and their spouse! They keep the snow well groomed and we've been told by everyone the food is awesome (we don't stop to eat!). 3,000 rise from bottom to top and 5 miles across! Plenty of slopes of all difficulty for everyone to take it easy or challenge themselves.
