Deer Valley Resort is the most popular attraction near Montage Deer Valley, a Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel — not to mention one of the most visited ski resorts in the entire country. From 2008 to 2011, the ski resort was rated by the readers of SKI Magazine as the No.1 ski resort in North America. During the winter, Deer Valley’s six terrain-covered mountains are hard to resist. After the snow melts, there is still plenty to write home about: Scenic chairlift rides, lift-served mountain biking and hiking, delicious dining and outdoor concerts by nationally recognized artists at the resort’s amphitheater.
Utah Olympic Park is another year-round draw for guests at the luxury Park City hotel. Now a training ground for high-performance athletes, the park was a competition venue during the 2002 Olympic Winter Games for Nordic jumping, bobsled, luge and skeleton. Guided tours of the competition sites as well as exhibits inside the Alf Engen Ski Museum are free. Try a four-person passenger bobsled ride, where speeds go up to 80 miles per hour with 5 Gs of force and a 40-story drop in less than a minute — perfect for thrill seekers. For a milder hands-on experience, take a chairlift to the top of the highest altitude ski jump at 7,130 feet.
