The New Deer Valley

The New Snow Park at Deer Valley

Vision

Known as North America’s premier mountain resort and leader in ski area hospitality and guest experience, Deer Valley Resort will further raise industry standards by reimagining the current 15 acres of surface parking lots at Snow Park Lodge into a modern and convenient world-class base area and arrival experience.

Deer Valley’s master plan, approved by Park City officials in 1977, envisioned development of the Snow Park base area. Over the past year, the resort has been considering ideas that meet it’s needs and honor the previous entitlement approvals and community sentiment. Deer Valley intends to remain within previously approved provisions, such as height limits and allowable square footage, as it moves forward with permit applications for specific elements. The first conditional use permit (CUP) application seeks approval to begin work on utilities and parking structures that will serve as the base for buildings, amenities, and a signature plaza that will create a seamless flow from arrival to mountainside.

SNOW PARK PLANS IN BRIEF

The new base area will provide an improved arrival and departure sequence to enhance first and last impressions; additional accommodations; Skier Services facilities; new, contemporary food, beverage and après options; an expansive ski beach; an integrated transportation and mobility hub; underground parking facilities; chairlift reconfiguration to unlock the potential for a ski-in village; and year-round amenities and activation.
