Where do I even begin with what is going on at Deer Valley these days. Since opening a week ago the conditions have been fantastic and so have the deals. The Mariposa is still running their 2 for 1 on entrees until December 17. It is a great treat if you have not been before or if it has been a while. If you missed our $30 lift ticket this week in honor of our 30th Anniversary all I have to say is I am sorry… but I hope really hope you were able to take advantage of that deal!
There is a lot going on at the resort this month starting this Sunday, December 12: Utah Winter Games Learn to Ski Clinic. First-time skiers are taught basic skills in a group lesson format.

As I mentioned early the skiing has been really great this year with all of the early season snow. I got out of the slopes today which will be one of my only a handful of days this season. I am expecting my second baby in February so skiing will be limited. But, I am sure glad I got out to take a few runs the snow was coming down and the conditions where great. They are calling for close to a foot of snow over the next couple of day so come on up and enjoy some turns!
