New ski trails at Utah's Deer Valley.
When Deer Valley ski resort opened in Park City in 1981, it offered primarily beginner- and intermediate-rated terrain. But now, two new triple chairs reach trails for advanced skiers. The Mayflower Bowl chair gives access to six new trails on a tough northeast-facing slope (best in morning), and the Clipper chair takes you up to a new jumpoff point for a dozen intermediate and novice trails off Bald Eagle peak. In all, the resort's eight chairs let you ski 42 runs.
Deer Valley is smaller than neighboring Park City, and its lift tickets cost more ($28 here, $24 in Park City). But it offers more services and fancier facilities.
January 5 through February 2, crowds are down and lower lodging rates are in effect. This year, you can buy lift tickets for the same day at major hotels in Salt Lake City or Park City.
Deer Valley is about a 45-minute drive from Salt Lake City. Head east on I-80, then take State Highway 224 south to the resort. For details, call (801) 649-1000.
