Goldener Hirsch Inn Named 2018 Best U.S. Ski Boutique Hotel

World Ski Awards Bestows

Honor for the Third Time in Six Years

Goldener Hirsch Inn, nestled mid-mountain at the world-renowned Deer Valley Resort, resumes their title of Best United States’ Ski Boutique Hotel by the World Ski Awards for the third time in six years. In addition, Goldener Hirsch Inn was recognized in the top three for the World’s Best Ski Boutique Hotels. These accomplishments were celebrated at the 2018 World Ski Awards Gala Ceremony in Kitzbühel, Austria, on November 17, 2018.

2018 saw the largest voter turnout in the history of the Awards from leading ski tourism professionals and hundreds of thousands of ski consumers from around the world. As the industry’s most distinguished benchmark, Goldener Hirsch Inn is recognized as the nation’s top ski boutique hotel out of seven top-tier finalists.

“We are incredibly proud to be named the Best Ski Boutique Hotel in the United States and recognized in the top three Best Ski Boutique hotels in the world,” said Michael Blakley, Goldener Hirsch Inn’s General Manager. “Such high praise is a testament to the staff of the Goldener Hirsch Inn and our owners, the Eccles family, for their continued commitment to providing a world-class experience at Deer Valley Resort.”

The World Ski Awards recognition follows Goldener Hirsch Inn’s recent recognition in Condé Nast Traveler’s 2018 Reader’s Choice Awards as one of the Top Hotels in the Southwest and West. The charming ski-in/ski-out, 20-room luxury property offers an authentic European atmosphere, award-winning full-service restaurant, and warm, personalized service for every guest.

The Goldener Hirsch Inn is currently undergoing an expansion that will open in 2019 and include a residential development in a second adjacent property. The expansion will include two modern, connected buildings with 40 luxury residential condominiums featuring studio to three-bedroom floor plans, with many offering a lock-off configuration. Other amenities will include a conference center with outdoor patios and firepits; a rooftop pool, hot tubs and fitness center with incredible views; a ski/boot locker room with an après-ski lounge; sky bridge connection from the expansion to the existing Goldener Hirsch Inn; and two levels of underground parking complete with storage areas for the residence owners.

World Ski Awards is the sister organization of World Travel Awards™, currently celebrating its 25th anniversary. For more information on the World Ski Awards or any other Goldener Hirsch Inn honors, visit the resort’s website at
