Holiday Happenings

The holiday season is about spending time with family. Deer Valley Resort’s holiday events have become beloved annual traditions for visiting guests, the Park City community and locals alike. Are you new to Park City? Come create lasting memories with our fun, free and family friendly activities throughout the holiday season.

Join us to celebrate Christmas with Santa Claus on Tuesday, December 24, 2013. The jolly old man will jingle around the Snow Park Lodge area at the resort base from 9 to 11 a.m., and then from noon to 1:30 p.m. in the Silver Lake Lodge (mid-mountain) area. Guests are invited to bring a camera and have their picture taken with St. Nick during his visit.

Christmas Day

Come be amazed at Deer Valley’s annual Torchlight Parade Monday, December 30, 2013, at dusk (approximately 6 p.m.). Deer Valley’s renowned ski school will dazzle guests with torches, synchronized skiing and all sorts of “illuminating” moves. While you will want to see it in person to truly appreciate the performance, you can watch last years Torchlight Parade here.

The parade descends down Big Stick ski run on Bald Eagle Mountain and is best viewed from behind Snow Park Lodge, where complimentary hot cider and cookies will be served. Get here early to make sure you have a good view and plenty of refreshments.


The holiday season is also about good food. Deer Valley has 11 restaurants open during the holidays with options perfect for either an intimate dining experience or large-group fun. See the Deer Valley website for full descriptions of cuisine and restaurant hours.

Happy holidays from Deer Valley Resort!   .
