Deer Valley A-Z | Gold Standard


Deer Valley Resort’s successful and award-winning ski school, for both adults and children, is based on the cornerstone of their Gold Standard of Instruction—offering lessons that are customized to guests and based on their individual needs, abilities and goals.

The ski school and level of instruction at Deer Valley® is a prime example of how the resort differentiates itself. Since the late, heralded skier Stein Eriksen graced the slopes as Deer Valley’s Director of Skiing, instruction at Deer Valley has been about more than learning how to ski and refining technique. It’s also about creating lasting relationships.

Eriksen worked closely with Deer Valley founders Edgar and Polly Stern. He first gained fame in the 1952 Oslo Winter Olympic Games, winning gold and silver medals in the giant slalom and slalom events, respectively. Moreover, he took pride in skiing and meeting with past students. His signature style typically attracted a crowd while he skied, and that high standard still exists today. At Deer Valley Resort, the meaningful experiences gained through the Gold Standard of Instruction allow skiers to learn,  grow and become part of the community they’ve sought to learn more about.

    I’ve taken two lessons this year and in my mind have dramatically improved my skills on the slopes. Love it that no matter what skill level you’re at, they’ve got a class to help you improve. Loving the slopes and know the next few days will bring some fresh powder.
