A Note from Our President on President’s Day
To celebrate President’s Day and the height of the winter, we met up with Deer Valley Resort President, Bob Wheaton to get an update on this ski season.
What a year it has been! We’ve continued to invest each season in the resort’s snowmaking system, and this season the system was certainly put to the test! The team we have at the resort in every aspect of our operations is second to none and this becomes increasingly evident when Mother Nature sends us a curve ball. Prior to the welcomed storm cycle, I have certainly been enjoying the Deer Valley corduroy this year, while curving lines on Stein’s Way and Magnet.
I hope many were able to get out and experience our VISA Freestyle International World Cup event the first week of February. We added another evening event with moguls on Thursday. It is always a thrill to see the events under the lights. The event means a lot of extra work for staff but we are thrilled to host such an amazing group of athletes from around the world. Our partnerships with FIS (International Ski Federation) and with the US Ski Team are great for the resort.
The President’s Day holiday means March and spring skiing are right around the corner. In the Wasatch spring also brings its share of powder days. Whether its spring corn or fluff I am looking forward to being on the mountain and enjoying the amazing efforts of the Deer Valley Team.
Hope to see you out there!
Bob Wheaton shares one of his favorite powder stashes:
Looking good Bob! I sure do miss the Utah pow, here in Sweden we ski on ice – keep up the great work, hoping to see some DV corduroy soon.
Red Cloud is a fixed-grip lift. Note on the video how the lift attendant swings the chair forward so that the transition is as smooth as possible for boarding.
It’s the little details, and nobody gets the details right like Deer Valley.
