Let’s face it, four days and nights of luxury and skiing at Deer Valley is great on its own. Toss in all of next year’s best skis, skiing alongside some of the America’s top ski testers (including US Ski Team members and former Olympians), a bunch of top instructors, plus some free ski swag, and you’ve got a skier’s dream come true.

SKI Magazine will make this dream a reality for 8 lucky skiers who will join our ski testing team at Deer Valley starting April 2nd and running through April 5. To be eligible you must be a proficient skier, willing and able to put in four good days on the mountain and most importantly, able to discern what you like and dislike about the skis.

Each guest tester will receive luxury Deer Valley accommodations for him or herself (private room and bath in shared condo), four days of lift tickets, breakfasts, lunches, a group dinner with SKI Magazine staff, impromptu ski lessons, a variety of cool gear, the possibility of your photos and opinions showing up in SKI Magazine and on, and of course, the opportunity to ski all the new skis first. The fee for participation is $2,250.00.

To apply for participation, send an email to no later than March 23 telling us about yourself, your skiing skills and why you would make a great ski tester. If you are chosen, we’ll send you all the details. Act quickly: the testing starts in a month.

We look forward to having you in Deer Valley. It’s a tough job, but…well, you know the rest.
