Deer Valley
New World-Class Base Area Planned at Deer Valley Resort
Investment Will Complete The Resort's Visionary 40-Year Master Plan, Set New Industry Standard For Guest Experience & Compliment Community Values  
DEER VALLEY RESORT; PARK CITY, UTAH (April 12, 2021) – Known as America’s premier mountain resort and leader in ski area hospitality and guest experience, Deer Valley Resort will further raise industry standards with a reimagining of the current 15 acres of surface parking lots at Snow Park Lodge into a modern and convenient world-class base area.

“The Snow Park Lodge has been an iconic entry point for Deer Valley skiers since the resort opened in 1981, serving as the gateway to a renowned skiing experience,” said Deer Valley President, Jeremy Levitt. “A lot has changed since then and an updated vision for the Snow Park base area will cement Deer Valley's storied legacy for decades to come, further elevating the guest experience and responding to the evolving needs of both our guests and the local community we’re proud to be part of.”

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 the resort’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.

“We’ve spent a great deal of time assessing our guests’ needs and how best to meet them, while considering how to balance this with the interests of the local community,” said Snow Park Project Manager, Rich Wagner. “Our conceptual plans for Snow Park are designed to be consistent with Park City’s vision and values and respectful of our neighbors and the local community. We’ve begun reaching out to share our concepts and preliminary designs and gain valuable community feedback, and we’ll continue doing that throughout the City’s review and approval process.”

Additional details about Snow Park plans will be available soon.

The Snow Park Lodge and base area will see a complete revision to create a premier base area experience for guests arriving at Deer Valley. The new base area will provide additional accommodations and skier services, new contemporary food and beverage and après options, plus an expansive ski beach. A new integrated transportation and mobility hub with multiple access points from new parking facilities will dramatically improve the current guest arrival and mountain access experience.

Snow Park will feature architecture and design inspired by the mountains, allowing the natural setting to flow through the new plaza, offering an array of activities and mountain views.

Pending local government review and approval, Snow Park is projected to break ground in 2022.
