Deer Valley Resort has invested in mountain improvements that benefit both winter and summer season visitors. During the summer, trail enthusiasts were able to enjoy a new flow trail on Bald Mountain, designed by Gravity Logic. Additionally, the Mid-Mountain trail was extended from Silver Lake to the Snow Park Lodge base area. New mountain equipment was purchased to enhance and maintain cut runs and to enhance the snowmaking systems mountainwide. Guests this winter season will enjoy a remodeled Silver Lake Restaurant and upgrades to the Bald Mountain Room in Silver Lake Lodge. View Improvements

Mr. Stern joins 409 honored members of this recognition, for his contribution to revolutionizing the ski industry by combining the sport aspect with the luxury aspect. The “Deer Valley Difference” continues to garner worldwide recognition and this is attributed, in great part, to Mr. Stern’s efforts.
