9 a.m.: The continental breakfast at Silver Lake Lodge has something for everyone, with cereals, pastries, and a delicious house-made cheddar biscuit with bacon and egg. From there it’s a quick ride up Quincy Express to Flagstaff Mountain’s family-embracing greens and blues.
10 a.m.: Stop for cocoa and fresh-baked cookies at Cushing’s Cabin, atop Flagstaff, to warm little hands and fill growling tummies.
10:30 a.m.: Back on Flagstaff, don’t miss the Children’s Adventure Areas, such as Ruby’s Tail, Bucky’s Backyard, and Quincy’s Cabin.
Noon: Warm up with a bowl of noodle soup at Bald Mountain Pho Silver Lake Lodge, where kids love choosing what goes in their belly-warming bowl.
2 p.m.: Ski back to the lodge and change for the family’s next thrill: a one-hour dogsledding experience with All Seasons Adventures, mushing a team of huskies over snowy meadows in the Wasatch or Uinta mountain ranges.
4 p.m.: Swing by Deer Valley Grocery-Café, in the Plaza building. After a busy day, a quiet dinner in the condominium is in order. Choose from over a dozen Deer Valley take-and-bake entrées, including house-made mac-and-cheese and Royal Street Café meatballs and marinara.
