For skiers who curse the day they let snowboarders on the slopes, this swanky ski resort is for you. No snowboards are allowed on these exclusive trails, which are spread out over four mountains including 100 runs, 6 bowls and 21 lifts. Catering to the affluent snow bums and bunnies who like their trails impeccably groomed and serviced by ski valets and heated sidewalks, Deer Valley seems to be about more than just light, fluffy powder. There’s lots of schmoozing to be found on the lifts and over gourmet lunches. When it’s time for a little après ski time in the lodge, the people watching is fantastic. Deer Valley generally opens its slopes from early Dec. to early April. When the mountainsides are green, you can take the chair lift up to appreciate the scenery, or set out on one of more than 50 miles of trails for a lovely Alpine hike or mountain biking expedition. Deer Valley Music Festival, which takes place in July and August, features outdoor jazz, classical and popular music concerts.
