    Chuck,

    Deer Valley is truly my home. You have been there and watched me grow up, hunted Christmas trees with me, my dad, and my brother, and sent me and your youngest off to the same college together. You have been part of the DV family, and part of my family, since before I was born. Thank you for being such a wonderful asset to DV, my family, and my dad. Looking forward to seeing what you do with this next chapter of life. Live it and enjoy it! You deserve it, my friend!

    With love,
    Emily Wheaton

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!
