Deer Valley Resort in Park City, Utah will more than double its skiable terrain across the Wasatch Mountains as part of a huge expansion over the next three ski seasons.

Owner, Alterra Mountain Company, will add 3,700 acres of terrain to its world-renowned, ski-only destination, adding 16 new lifts and a new 10-passenger gondola. The diverse terrain will also be supported by a new cutting-edge snowmaking system and feature precise snow grooming that adheres to Deer Valley’s existing standards.

The complete project will unfold over the next three seasons, with a significant portion of the new lifts and trails set to open as early as the 2025/26 winter season. When completed, Deer Valley will offer 5,726 acres of ski-only terrain spread across 10 mountains.

The Deer Valley investment is in addition to the US$500 million capital program announced by Alterra earlier this year to enhance the guest and employee experience across its portfolio of 17 destinations.

Jared Smith, President & CEO, Alterra Mountain Company said: “Deer Valley has long been a world-renowned resort and this project will offer guests more of what it has always been known for – legendary service, an exceptional ski-only experience, and industry-leading culinary offerings.”

The village and portal will feature over 1,200 new parking spots, and a new skier services facility offering additional premium ski school, equipment rentals, retail, and food and beverage amenities.

In addition to the ski-specific amenities, the new village is slated to have over 800 hotel rooms across multiple properties, nearly 1,700 residential units, 23,000 square metres of retail and commercial space, and a 6,300 square metre recreation center.

The last time Deer Valley saw a significant terrain expansion was for the 2007/2008 winter season, with the addition of 200 acres of skiing on Lady Morgan Mountain.
