Overview

Deer Valley was named the number one ski resort in North America by readers of SKI magazine in 2008 and again in 2009. Deer Valley Resort excels in quality service both off and on the mountain. 

Ski Regions

The Deer Valley Resort ski area is divided into 6 ski regions:

Little Baldy Peak offers nine trails ranging from beginner to expert. Trails are accessed via the resort's Little Stick and Navigator runs, or by the Jordanelle Express Gondola.

Bald Eagle Mountain offers ideal terrain for skiers of all abilities.  First-time skiers will appreciate the separate, protected beginner area known as Wide West, accessed by two chairlifts, Burns and Snowflake. Numerous intermediate runs allow skiers to slowly advance from the gentler Last Chance to the steeper Solid Muldoon and Big Stick ski runs. Advanced and expert skiers can challenge themselves on our 2002 Olympic Winter Games runs, Champion (site of freestyle moguls), Know You Don't (site of alpine slalom) and White Owl (site of freestyle aerials). The Silver Lake Express high-speed quad chairlift gives skiers and foot passengers easy access to and from the Silver Lake (our mid-mountain) area. 

Bald Mountain features mostly intermediate and advanced skiing, with one easy route down on Homeward Bound, accessed by the Sterling Express, Wasatch Express, Sultan Express and Mayflower lifts. Strong skiers in search of steeper, ungroomed trails and Utah's famous light powder will find what they're looking for on the numerous north-facing slopes. Bald Mountain offers many of Deer Valley's most coveted gladed areas such as Sunset Glade and Triangle Trees. Consult a mountain host or ski patroller for guidance before entering these areas.

Flagstaff Mountain serviced by four high-speed quads and one triple chair, offers a full range of skiing for all abilities, including extensive gladed areas for advanced skiers, access to Ontario Bowl and some of Deer Valley's most popular intermediate runs. Flagstaff is also a favorite with the kids, offering special children's runs and play areas such as Quincy's Cabin, Bucky's Backyard, Ruby's Tail and more.

Empire offers some of the most advanced, expert terrain at Deer Valley as well as two intermediate runs that border the mountain. (There are no green runs off the top of Empire.) The Daly Chutes will challenge even the most experienced skiers. The TNT (Tricks 'n Turns) Park, accessed via Little Chief chairlift, offers a variety of snow features and is useful as a teaching area for freestyle moves.

Lady Morgan is accessed via Lady Morgan Express and features mostly advanced and expert skiing. From the top, one easy run, Pearl, and one intermediate run, Dakota, offer quick access to the Empire Canyon Lodge. This chairlift is easily accessed via the bottom of the Northside Express on Woodside run or off the Hawkeye run on Custer, both of which offer easier skiing. The Centennial area to the north of the top terminal offers 65 acres of expert gladed terrain for skiers in search of Utah's famous powder.

Deer Valley Resort has a good vertical rise (2,999ft). As a guide, skiers will typically stop several times when skiing top to bottom (most skiers would not be able to ski top to bottom without stopping). Deer Valley Resort has mostly intermediate and advanced runs so beginners may find it a little challenging. With 99 trails, it will take quite some time to explore the entire ski area.
