Easy-to-Reach Skiing: Deer Valley
We really like skiing and boarding. But that doesn't mean we want to spend our whole vacation just getting to the mountain. Our Ski Areas Near Airports Map will help you maximize your time on the slopes.
Set deliciously close to Salt Lake City--and its massive number of Delta flights--Park City, Utah offers not one but three ski areas from which to choose. Get yourself on an early morning flight from the West Coast, and you might be able to make first tracks on some of that heavenly, dry Utah powder.
While its hard to go wrong at Park City Mountain or The Canyons, Deer Valley has introduced the biggest changes this season, with the opening of 200-plus acres of new terrain, including a glade skiing area where you can test your tree-avoidance skills. At least, you can if you're a two planker; Deer Valley doesn't welcome snowboarders.
The Deer Valley season fires up this Saturday, with full-day tickets going for $79. Multi-day passes can save you a couple bucks, and afternoon passes are $55 for you skiers flying in from the East Coast.
