Deer Valley A-Z | Inside Edge

Consistently ranked number one among North American ski resorts, Deer Valley’s impeccable attention to grooming has placed them in a class of their own.

Each evening, as the lifts wind down at 4 p.m., members of the Mountain Operations team deploy a fleet of snow grooming machines. Working in multiple, overnight shifts, the crews comb the trails and slopes into perfect corduroy-groomed slopes. It’s a standard that Deer Valley® guests have come to expect.

And while there are plenty of non-groomed slopes to ski—six bowls and over 930 acres of glade skiing to be exact, the resort takes grooming very seriously.

With state-of-the-art equipment such as the Prinoth® BEASTS, which increase grooming productivity and efficiency, guests can be assured that their carving skis will arc along well manicured slopes after they sip their morning coffee. And each morning, they can stay up-to- date on where to find the freshest corduroy with Deer Valley’s Inside Edge grooming report.

    Wow… More bad news…
    I’m so disappointed the Deer Valley season pass holders are completely left out of the Icon system. The DV season pass is by far the most expensive season pass in North America and the new “Company” can’t even offer a real mountain collective pass to compensate “Us” for the Icon crowds that we can expect next season. I’ve been a DV pass holder for years and now have to reconsider where to spend my hard earned $.
    How does the saying go… When you at the top the only place you can go is down.
