Still planning to "chase Utah powder" this year? The ski gurus at Deer Valley® are determined, in spite of COVID-19 related restrictions, to keep skiers enjoying their time on the mountain this season.
Deer Valley staff members have spent many hours grappling with a few logistical questions that might arise during your ski day this season. The good news is that most of us are now accustomed to restrictions in our current day-to-day lives… so many of the following changes will not seem too far out of the new “normal.”
Plan on buying your lift tickets in advance for the best price and to guarantee your spot on the mountain. We all love less people on the mountain and Deer Valley continues to limit the daily guest capacity.
Explore Lodging Packages
Enjoy a spring getaway with the Spring Skiing Package or try one of the other exciting lodging packages that are available. All lodging packages feature customized vacation planning including lodging, lift tickets, transportation, travel insurance and more.
Masks are all the rage at Deer Valley and not just on the chairlift. This year, masks are required at all times while you are at the resort when you are not actively eating or skiing. Help Deer Valley stay safe and stay open by wearing your mask over your mouth and nose at all times, unless you are in the act of eating or skiing.
Check out dining options
Deer Valley is offering a few new dining options for skiers this season. Deer Valley day lodge cafeterias are featuring table service, but don’t worry, they haven’t changed the Deer Valley Turkey Chili. To ensure your table at lunch, make a reservation at one of the day lodges. Walk-in are welcome but reservations are recommended.
Deer Valley Grocery~Café does not require reservations for breakfast and lunch. Dinner reservations at all Deer Valley restaurants can be made by calling 435-645-6632 or online at deervalley.com.
Grab and Go
New this season, Grab and Go items are offered around the resort. Guests can order on the new mobile app, The Deer Valley Resort Guide, and pick up their items at many different locations around the mountain. Grab a quick bite before your ski day at the Snow Park Grab and Go/Etc., a beer to enjoy on the ski beach at the Silver Lake Grab and Go, or a Nashville Fried Chicken Sandwich from Royal Street Express.

Get the app
As mentioned above, another great tool for guests this season is the new Deer Valley Resort app. And it does more than just dining reservations and grab and go orders. Ditch the old-school ski map and use your phone to negotiate the ski runs on the mountain, check trail and lift status, explore the event calendar, and more. The Deer Valley Resort Guide is available in the App Store for IOS and the Google Play Store for android.
Find a Mountain Host
The last tip for planning your Deer Valley day this season is to find a mountain host around the resort. Mountain hosts are stationed on the mountain, mostly at large trail maps you can’t miss. They can answer questions you may have and help you discover new terrain. Additionally, four complimentary Mountain Host tours are offered each day, leaving from the top of Carpenter Express chairlift for skiers of intermediate and expert abilities. Expert tours start at 9:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. and intermediate tours start at 10 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. On the tour you'll learn about the resort's terrain, history and trivia while discovering new runs and secret powder stashes.
