Ski Resort Life

At Play Off the Slopes

From old-fashioned horse-pulled sleigh rides to Ski-Doo–powered snowmobile trips over virgin powder, there’s more to do at Deer Valley than ski. If it happens on the snow, it happens here.

Sure, our 2,026 acres of ski terrain will keep you busy, but failing to enjoy some of Deer Valley’s off-slope adventures is to miss the true magic of the ski vacation experience.

Dog Sledding

Release your inner musher and take the reins on a dog sledding trip in the Wasatch and Uinta mountain ranges. Children welcome. 


Get your race on with NASTAR on the resort’s Bald Mountain course, open from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. daily.

Nordic skiing

Skinny-ski your way through the Uinta range on a three- or five-hour guided Nordic tour with White Pine Touring. Or visit their 20-kilometer track in town to loop the three-, five- or 10-kilometer trails.

Sleigh Rides

Climb aboard an old-fashioned sleigh pulled by draft horses for a peaceful glide through the woods.


Power through 7,000 acres of untouched terrain at Garff Ranch, 10 minutes from the resort, with Deer Valley’s Summit Meadows Adventures. One-, two- or three-hour rides are available.


If you can walk, you can snowshoe. Join a tour of Daly or Empire Canyons and see the mountain in a whole new way. Two-, three- and four-hour tours are available.
