I hate to admit it but I still have not been out on the slopes. With the cold temperatures (that were great for snowmaking) that mother nature brought our way last week I decided to take everyone else’s word that the skiing was good. But we have finally been blessed with a good storm so now I am itching to get out!
Since, I have been hiding in the lodge I have had the opportunity to take advantage of our award wining dining. I have hit the natural buffet at Snow Park for lunch and love that they now offer grilled chicken as an option for your salad. I also love the roasted veggie and mozzarella plate but nothing beats the Deer Valley Turkey Chili; a Deer Valley staple. I have to have the famous Turkey Chili a couple times a year. I also got the privilege to check out The Mariposa menu. If you have not been to The Mariposa I would HIGHLY recommend it. There is so much to love on that menu I don’t even know where to begin. The new crab casa appetizer and caprese salad are decedent. My personal favorite is the sea scallops for the entrée but if you are not into seafood the bison is unbelievable…I think that I dream about them at night!
Now that I am full from just thinking about all of the food, I don’t want to forget to mention some great events coming up. On December 24, Santa will be at the Snow Park Lodge getting the little one’s last minute gift requests (so don’t forget to be good)! On December 30 at 6 p.m. on the plaza at Snow Park you can watch our annual Torch Light Parade. We will be passing out complimentary cookies and hot chocolate for guests.
Those of you who are interested in coming out during Sundance, we have extended our EVP package through the beginning of February. The EVP package saves up to 25% on your lodging and lift tickets. For more information check out our website deervalley.com. If you have not been out during Sundance, it is always a great time to ski as most guests are in town to attend films. Then at night you can check out a movie or just try to catch a glimpse of a celebrity on Main Street.
Wish me luck on getting some turns in this week!
