Spring Skiing at Deer Valley Resort

Spring has arrived to Park City and Deer Valley Resort, with 4 more weeks of skiing at Deer Valley, which closes April 10, 2011.  Spring skiing offers some of the greatest conditions of the year, especially with the intermittent winter storms, bringing powder one day, corn snow the next.  A few things to remember about spring skiing;  use plenty of sun screen, skiing early is best as afternoon snow can be more difficult, as well as tiring.  Corn snow is the condition before the snow gets to a mashed potatoes type consistency and but corn snowcan be almost as good as a powder day!  And, as always, the cure to tired legs is a hot tub and get ready for the next day of sunshine!

Looking for something more activities during your stay.  The Park City Calendar of Events lists everything from children's events, sporting events, music, film, and cultural events in Park City.

It may be the first week of spring, but winter weather is heading our way.  Get out and enjoy our Greatest Snow on Earth."

February Fun Events with Empire Luxury Lodging

February is the month to visit Park City, Utah

Skiing this season has been nothing short of fantastic!  Skiing has been incredible, especially with a few new inches over night and more on the way this week. If you have not been here yet this season I encourage you not to miss the fantastic conditions!

Valentines Day is just around the corner and I would highly recommend making reservations for The Mariposa!  It is Deer Valley’s most romantic dining experience and beyond the atmosphere, the food is over the top.

I recently had the opportunity to eat at Deer Valley’s Fireside Dining.  It was sooooo delicious!  The raclette cheese with their houseFireside Dining at Empire Lodge made fig mustard and the strawberry chutney with tarragon, veal stew, beat salad and white chocolate Grand Marnier are among my favorites.  I also had the privilege of taking the sleigh ride to complete the evening.  It is a great place to bring the entire family.

Another February fun adventure is snowmobiling at Deer Valley’s Summit Meadows Adventures which is located just outside of Park City.  It is a great way to spend an afternoon with your friends and family.  We had an awesome time in the meadow while getting to know the machine. But nothing beats the views back into Park City; I almost forgot how beautiful it is.

Keep the Snow Dance going because it is working and we will see you on the slopes!

Give us a call when you’re planning your next Deer Valley Ski Vacation.
