Deer Valley Activities

Establishment neighborhood
Deer Valley
Nestled in the Wasatch Mountain range, Deer Valley Resort consistently tops lists for its customer service. In skiing parlance, that translates to on-site ski valets to help you unload your gear, immaculately groomed slopes, and well-appointed lodges. (Stop for lunch at Royal Street Café at Silver Lake Lodge—it's far cry from the cafeteria-style dining you're used to mid-mountain.) What's nice about Deer Valley is there's a little something for everyone, making it a great mountain for families—there are easy cruisers like Bluebell and Lucky Jack, plus some solid steeps like Daly Bowl and Lady Morgan. Deer Valley is one of the last skiers-only holdouts, so like neighboring Alta, no snowboarders are permitted. Photos courtesy of Deer Valley Resort
Snowmobiling at the Deer Valley Resort
2250 Deer Valley Dr. S, Deer Valley
Sure, snowmobiling is kind of an athletic cop-out—but if you’re going to do it while you’re in Park City, this is the place. Summit Meadows Adventures offers guided tours (for groups, or just you) in Browns Canyon where you can explore 7,000 acres with spectacular views of the the Wasatch Mountains. They also offer complimentary transportation from Park City (it’s just ten minutes from Main Street), plus helmets. Photos courtesy of Deer Valley Resort
Deer Valley Music Festival
2250 Deer Valley Dr. S, Deer Valley
Nestled at the base of the mountain, Snow Park Outdoor Amphitheater at Deer Valley Resort is the Utah Symphony’s summer home, offering a range of chamber music, classical and pops shows that run the gamut from Rogers and Hammerstein singalongs to the Symphony’s ode to David Bowie to DreamWorks Animation in concert. While the Deer Valley Music Festival also books shows at St. Mary’s Church and nearby private homes, you won’t regret listening to music in a large crowd outdoors—it’s a lot like the Hollywood Bowl, without LA’s light pollution. (Note: all concerts start at 7:30pm—it’s especially convenient if you’re staying at the St. Regis).
