October – 2016 Dear Thor, As the ski season quickly approaches with some early snow in the peaks above Deer Valley Resort, I had the chance to run along the Mid-Mountain Trail on my birthday a few weeks ago. I love to witness how nature changes the look and smell of the mountains, the ski slopes and the
A look of stunned surprise comes over people’s faces when they find out my husband learned to ski at age 65. They assume since we live in Park City, he has skied all his life. Nothing could be further from the truth. My husband, Jay, had never slipped his feet into a pair ski boots until

Deer Valley’s three-day program for advanced and expert skiers, with you as our formidable instructor, definitely tested our group’s abilities, extending us beyond our comfort zones.
