Trip Highlights

A destination beyond comparison. Discover why Deer Valley Resort has earned a sterling reputation as a world-class destination with an unparalleled level of service. We will be there during the second week of the annual Sundance Film Festival. This means that you will find the slopes even less crowded and the celebrities in town more plentiful than usual. Ski as much as you want and then rub elbows with the glitterati in Park City if you like.

Start your day with the hot buffet breakfast that’s included in your package. Then, you can ski all you want at Deer Valley, or check out the slopes at Park City and Canyons, which are connected via gondola. You can also take an Uber to Sundance Mountain Resort for a truly unique experience.

We have a direct, non-stop flight from Tampa to Salt Lake City. From there, it’s a 45-minute scenic ride to the resort.

Mike and Suzanne are planning fun activities for our group, including an Après Ski event and a final dinner banquet. They will also assist you with discounted lift tickets and rental equipment. Leave the details to them and enjoy your vacation.

Join Mike and Suzanne on this unique and special trip, a once in a lifetime opportunity!

The Mountains

Deer Valley is honored to be ranked as the United States’ Best Ski Resort by the World Ski Awards for six consecutive years (2013-2018). It’s world renowned for its outstanding groomers, as well as terrain for all levels of skiers. One of the best maintained resorts anywhere, you can enjoy chutes, bowls, glades, bumps and the famous corduroy runs all over the mountain. Deer Valley Resort earned a sterling reputation as a world-class destination with an unparalleled level of service.

Just 10 minutes to the northwest is the old mining town of Park City where the Sundance Film Festival is held (see more festival info below) and where you can access the Park City ski area. Here you have easy access to 7,300 acres of skiable terrain, including Canyons ski area which can be accessed via Gondola. The base area of Canyons is about a 15-minute drive from Deer Valley.

In 1969, Robert Redford bought the land now known as Sundance and envisioned the careful growth of a community committed to the balance of art, nature and community. Today, Sundance offers an atmosphere steeped in cultural heritage. Sundance Mountain Resort offers a special experience about 45 minutes south of Deer Valley.
