If you ask a Park City Local about Deer Valley you will likely hear a reply similar to this “The food is amazing.” Well it is not just amazing for a ski resort but for any resort. My family enjoys sitting on the ski beach enjoying a beer or going to one of the ski huts for a Irish Coffee. Deer Valley is a well thought out resort with amazing food, grooming, and bathrooms. Yep even the bathrooms are posh. I have never walked into a dirty bathroom at Deer Valley . How do they manage perfectly clean bathrooms at the top of ski lifts. And these are not your typical Ski Resort bathrooms these bathrooms have granite counter tops.
