Experience five fabulous days of skiing and learning on the six pristine mountains of Deer Valley, and stay right at the base of the resort in the newly built Silver Baron Lodge. This premier American ski resort is for skiers only — no snowboarding allowed — and offers a free overnight ski check so you can retire each evening to your luxurious lodgings without lugging your gear to and from the slopes. Your Deer Valley experience includes a three-hour ski lesson with PSIA-certified instructors and expert-led field trips on and off the slopes to learn about the history of this former silver-mining region and host of the 2002 Winter Olympic Games.


Highlights

• “Two-plankers” only — the best skis only experience in the country is snowboard-free and includes industry-leading services, fine dining and short lines at 21 chairlifts spread over 2,000 acres.
• Stay six nights at the base of the resort in the unique Silver Baron Lodge, where timber-frame architecture, stone fireplaces and iron finishes capture the area’s mining heritage.
• Become a better skier in a three-hour lesson with skiers of your ability level and learn about the history of Deer Valley and Park City through expert lectures, museum visits and more.
