Deer Valley Resort Delivers Festive, Holiday Cheer

December is the most wonderful time of the year to experience the magic of the holiday season at Deer Valley Resort. Voted the United States’ Best Ski Resort four years running, Deer Valley provides a winter wonderland setting and ample holiday cheer for visiting guests with its on-mountain festivities and gourmet feasts.

On-mountain holiday highlights include a visit from Santa Claus on Saturday, December 24 in the Snow Park Lodge area from 9 to 11 a.m., and then in the Silver Lake Lodge area from noon to 1:30 p.m. Guests and their children are invited to bring cameras for a slope-side picture with the Jolly Elf. On December 30, Deer Valley Resort hosts its annual Torchlight Parade at dusk on Big Stick ski run on Bald Eagle Mountain, behind Snow Park Lodge. Closing out the year while taking in the lights and torches of the Synchronized Ski Team descending the hill in perfect formation delights the crowds year after year. Seafood Buffet will remain open during the event, serving its regular menu. Complimentary hot cider and cookies will be served on the Snow Park Plaza from 5:45 to 6 p.m.

And here comes the crowds. Will these still count as "ticket sales" and contribute to DV selling out on busy days?

We are Deer Valley season pass holders. Will the DV season pass for 18-19 provide us with limited access to the other resorts, or we will need to purchase two (2) different passes?

Wow! It is very affordable. How does DV limit the ticket sales on the sold out dates?

It's #WeatherWednesday and a beautiful day up at Deer Valley Resort. The last week accumulated 2-4 feet of fresh snow and the skiing conditions are impeccable. See you on the slopes!
