What is expanded excellence?

Expanded Excellence is a collection of projects that will evolve and elevate the Deer Valley experience for future generations. From the adventures that await you in our Expanded Terrain anchored by the Deer Valley East Village to the bustling energy of a reimagined Snow Park Village to the Revitalization of Existing Facilities.

What is included in the Deer Valley Resort terrain expansion?  

Upon completion, Deer Valley skiers will enjoy the Deer Valley East Village with a skier services facility, complete with ski school, children’s programs, rentals, and retail, plus 3,700 acres of new skiable terrain, a new on-mountain lodge with Deer Valley operated food & beverage outlets, and additional day-skier parking. 

How much terrain will be added at full build out?

Upon completion, Deer Valley’s current 2,026 acres of skiable terrain spread across six mountains will expand by 3,700 acres and four mountains, encompassing a total of 5,726 acres spread across 10 mountains. This skiable terrain will be accessed by 37 chairlifts serving 238 ski runs, more than doubling the resort’s size and making Deer Valley one of the largest ski resorts in North America.

When will the new terrain open?

Approximately 2,900 acres of skiable terrain, featuring 110 ski runs serviced by 9 lifts (including a gondola), is scheduled to open for the 25/26 winter season. The additional 800 acres, 7 lifts and 25 ski runs will follow in future seasons, with an exact timeline yet to be determined.

Where is the new terrain located?

The new terrain is located across South Peak, Park Peak, Big Dutch, Pioche and Hail Mountains, which are situated just east of Deer Valley’s Bald Mountain. The terrain expansion will be accessible to skiers from many routes off the east and south sides of Bald Mountain and from the Deer Valley East Village. This area was formally known as the Mayflower Mountain Resort project. 

What type of terrain will be available in the expansion?

The new 3,700 acres of skiable terrain sits between 6,450 and 9,350 feet in elevation. Boasting nearly a 3,000 vertical drop from the highest point on Park Peak at 9,350 feet, the mostly north-facing slopes will offer skiing for all abilities across 135 planned ski runs, including several wide-open bowls and glade areas.

Will Deer Valley manage the additional terrain and mountain infrastructure?

The new terrain will fully integrate into Deer Valley’s trail map and mountain operations, including snow grooming, ski patrol, ski school, rentals, retail and food & beverage facilities.

Is the new terrain ski-only?

Yes. The expanded terrain will be a part of Deer Valley’s overall skiable acreage and trail map, offering access to skiers only.   

Will an additional lift ticket or pass be required to ski the new terrain?

No. The expansion will be a part of Deer Valley’s terrain with access provided by any of the resort’s lift tickets, pass products or Ikon Pass, subject to product blackout dates and reservation availability.

Will Deer Valley continue to manage daily skier capacities?

Yes. Daily skier capacity continues to be a priority and we anticipate that we will continue to sell out on select days. 

How much parking will be available to skiers at the Deer Valley East Village?

There will be over 1,200 new day skier parking spaces available. 

Will Deer Valley’s new skier services facility be open for the 25/26 winter season?

The facility is currently projected for a 26/27 opening; however, this timeline could change. Temporary facilities may be used until fully completed.

How will guests access the Expanded Terrain?

Guests will be able to access Deer Valley’s expanded terrain through the Deer Valley East Village entrance via U.S Route 40, circumnavigating the town of Park City, as well as from multiple connection points on mountain from Deer Valley’s current terrain. With 1,200 new parking spaces planned for day skier use, guests will have another means of entry that will expand on the resort’s arrival experiences and help reduce traffic in the town of Park City.

How will construction affect the mountain now and in the coming ski seasons?

Construction is not expected to have a significant impact on the mountain during the coming ski seasons. Measures will be taken to minimize the impact of construction on the environment and surrounding area. The ski runs and lifts at Deer Valley will remain open during the construction period and will not be affected.
