Ski Valet Service

Deer Valley offers a ski valet service at the base of their main lodge, where two of their main ski lifts are located. Instead of having to lug your skis, boots, pools, helmet, etc every day, you can ski right up to the ski valet at the end of the day and leave all your gear with the attendants who will lock it up overnight. The next morning you can pick it back up and get right on the ski lifts for another full day of skiing! I love never having to worry about carrying my skis.

Complimentary Chauffeur Service

Deer Valley offers complimentary transportation with Cadillac Escalades to all areas of the resort and Park City to all guests staying in Deer Valley Resort properties.

Deer Valley Text Program

Whatever you need is just a text away. If you need to schedule your Cadillac car service or if you just need extra towels, no need to pick up the phone and call the front desk. You can just send a quick and easy text!

Deer Valley Grocery Café

Delicious breakfast and lunch!! They also have many take away options if you want to have a cozy dinner in your room, casseroles you can reheat if you’re staying in a chalet with a kitchen, and fun foodie souvenirs for gifts to take back home.

Royal Street Café

This is my absolute favorite for lunch!! It’s in such a beautiful location, you can ski right up to the restaurant and sit outside on the terrace and watch all the skiers come down the mountain. It’s also the perfect spot for après ski!

Fireside Dining

Such a unique dining experience. My absolute favorite for a special dinner at Deer Valley! There are four giant stone fireplaces each offering a different course: giant blocks of Swiss raclette cheese melting by the fireplace, legs of lamb roasting by another fireplace, and chocolate fondue for dessert by another fireplace.
