In the winter, when powdery snow sparkles on the mountains and fires glow in old stone hearths, few places are as lovely as Deer Valley. Summer can be just as much fun, when mountain wildflowers blossom under crystal-clear skies, providing the perfect frame for outdoor pursuits.
Check into your ski-in/ski-out resort, and hit the slopes before dinner.
Try skiing some different runs this morning, and after lunch, experience the thrill of a dog sled ride. For dinner, consider the Deer Valley Resort’s fireside dining experience, which features courses served from three different grand fireplaces.
Experienced skiers should not miss a heliskiing excursion, with runs averaging 14,000 vertical feet of pristine powder. In the evening, take a romantic sleigh ride to a Viking yurt, where you indulge in a five-course meal accompanied by live music.
Instead of skiing today, you might take a snowmobile ride, go sledding, try snowshoeing, go for a horseback ride or take advantage of your resort’s spa.
Get in one last run down the slopes before departing for home.
After taking some time to unpack and relax at your resort, head out for a round of golf on one of several picturesque mountain courses.
Explore the local area, walking through pine and aspen forests to alpine meadows and glacial waterfalls. Chair lifts operate in the summer, allowing hikers to forgo tiring ascents. In the afternoon, go zip-lining over the treetops.
Enjoy a relaxing morning of fly-fishing on the Provo River, followed by a picnic lunch. Or if you prefer, view the idyllic river scenery from a kayak or river raft instead. In the early evening, take a hay ride to a gourmet chuck wagon dinner accompanied by live music.
Watch a breathtaking mountain sunrise from a hot-air balloon early this morning. After some breakfast, experience the landscape the way the pioneers did—on horseback. The “Reins ‘n’ Trains” adventure with the Heber Valley Railroad always makes for a memorable day.
After another mountain walk or round of golf, depart for home.
