Deer Valley Resort has been a perennial top-rated resort among media outlets for years, and this year is no different. The resort landed at the number one spot on Ski Magazine’s annual readers’ poll. The magazine says that for many returning visitors, Deer Valley is much like a cherished piece of clothing: “Comfortable. Familiar. Welcoming.” Even though the resort was recently acquired by KSL Partners and has become part of the Aspen Ski Company, many hope that the resort will retain its special and memorable aspects that keep guests returning.
Deer Valley’s founder, Edgar Stern, conceived and developed the resort to be a place where customer service reigned supreme. Deer Valley was developed to offer five-star service found at world class hotels. Deer Valley continues to receive top scores in grooming, lodging, and service, shoring up Stern’s visions.
This year, Deer Valley also garnered the coveted No. 1 family resort spot, all among stiff competition. This accolade is most likely due to the awesome ski school and the “all guests are family” feel. While the resort does get marked down because many feel the terrain is just not challenging, many say that it’s just that most don’t know where to find it. For instance, Sunset Glades on Bald Mountain is well known for its tree skiing and plentiful powder. The fact that Deer Valley does not allow snowboarding is also seen as a very favorable aspect.
Its proximity to downtown Park City is also a thumbs-up for many visitors. And don’t forget the food and après ski experience. The Brass Tag was rated high in the survey for its après ski appetizers, and perennial favorite The Mariposa was once again tapped as one of the readers’ favorite Deer Valley Restaurants.
In addition to the ratings in Ski Magazine, Deer Valley has also been highlighted for its terrific employees and why they are some of the most satisfied workers in the area. Because of Deer Valley’s generous benefits that include ski privileges and housing assistance, employees of Deer Valley have returned year after year to provide that well-known customer service.
