Remembering Stein Eriksen

Fresh powder from the night before graced the slopes and the sun shone for a beautiful bluebird day at Deer Valley Resort. A large but intimate crowd gathered après-ski on the snow outside the Troll Hallen Lounge at the elegant Stein Eriksen Lodge on December 11, 2016. We were there to celebrate the glories of

Letters from Melissa: Experience Steeps and Stashes

October – 2016 Dear Thor, As the ski season quickly approaches with some early snow in the peaks above Deer Valley Resort, I had the chance to run along the Mid-Mountain Trail on my birthday a few weeks ago. I love to witness how nature changes the look and smell of the mountains, the ski slopes and the

Letters from Melissa: Steeps and Stashes

Your three-day expert instruction was exactly what I expected and more. As I entered my 50s last fall, I made a commitment to live life testing my abilities and accepting new challenges. Deer Valley’s three-day program for advanced and expert skiers, with you as our formidable instructor, definitely tested our group’s abilities, extending us beyond our comfort zones. Although I have been skiing for over 40 years and used to race and teach, last season was the first winter I have been able to work on my confidence in the trees, in moguls and on steep terrain. It was so fun to look down on the far western black diamonds and now green slopes where we had skied with you.

On the very first day, our group met at the base of Deer Valley’s Snow Park Lodge at 8:30 a.m. for introductions, and then we were off for a couple of warm-up runs and our two groups were divided. I soon learned I would be joining your group with another woman from Pasadena and a father-son from Park City. The small group size was just about right, though I know you could handle more skiers. Right from the start you let us know that safety was your number one priority and you would be challenging us as you raised the bar little by little.

5 Tips for Mountain Biking at Deer Valley Resort

Powder days are the subject of every skier’s dream – that weightlessness and effortlessness of a snow turn keeps us coming back for more. The summer version, mountain biking down tacky trails, is affectionately know as “brown pow”. Same great gravity sensation, same great view, just about 60 degrees warmer! Here’s a few tips to

Fireside Dining at Deer Valley Resort

Empire Canyon Lodge, nestled high in the Wasatch Back has the allure of that one well marketed image so often captured: ski resort lodge. The drive to Empire Canyon Lodge obliges as mood setting fodder. Those who experience Fireside Dining, Empire Canyon Lodge’s allure, will receive a just reward. Fireside Dining is graciously roomy. Quaking aspen
