When it comes to the best option for lodging on a ski vacation, there’s one phrase that puts a smile on everyone’s face: ski-in/ski-out. Yes, there’s nothing better than staying on the mountain where you can hop on your skis and hit the slopes first thing in the morning—and end with that last perfect run right back home. No shuttle busses, no parking hassles, no carrying your equipment back and forth from an off-site lodge. What can beat a ski-in/ski-out experience? How about a luxury ski-in/ski-out experience?
Deer Valley Resort in Park City, Utah, has the some of the most—and some of the finest—ski-in/ski-out luxury properties in the country. You have many options when it comes to slopeside accommodations, from sophisticated hotels to luxurious private homes. So if you’re looking for an unforgettable experience that combines the legendary Utah powder with five-star pampering, Deer Valley Resort has just what fits the bill.
Deer Valley Signature Collection
Want that homey feel of a high-end vacation home? Deer Valley’s Signature Collection features private homes and condominiums located in two of the resort villages. You can choose from those nestled in the aspen trees at the base of Snow Park Lodge or in the European-style alpine village of Silver Lake. Options range from one-bedroom condominiums to seven-bedroom private homes that can serve as a home base for a family vacation you’ll never forget.
You’ll find top-of-the-line amenities in any of the properties, in addition to full-size kitchens, fireplaces, complimentary wifi, and daily housekeeping. When you’re ready to hit downtown Park City, take advantage of complimentary transportation service, provided by Cadillac, to explore Park City’s Historic Main Street, which is just minutes away.
The Grand Lodge
Located near the Northside Express chairlift, The Grand Lodge features luxury condominiums with all the resort amenities you would expect. Choose from three to six bedroom residences, most with spectacular views of Park City. Each condominium features hand-hewn beams, custom cabinets, granite countertops, and other high-end finishes. Ski-in/ski-out is a breeze with a ski locker room and ski valet services, plus you can take advantage of two common area hot tubs, a steam room, fitness center, and an on-site concierge to help with any of your other needs.
Black Diamond Lodge
The Black Diamond Lodge, which is located slopeside in the Snow Park base area, features one- to four-bedroom residences in a warm and inviting mountain-lodge environment.
