Winter Wonderland Destination: Montage Deer Valley, Park City UT

Resting gracefully among the Wasatch Mountains is Montage Deer Valley resort. Some call it the “crown” of Park City nestled into Empire Pass at 9,000 feet above sea level. Quite like a grand old Alpine chalet.

While skiing could be called the resort’s “main attraction” a variety of other winter activities are available allowing guests to explore the breath taking winter landscape some of these include snowshoeing, tubing, ice-skating, and snowmobiling. Guests can also experience the rush of real Olympic bobsled runs at the Utah Olympic Park. If one is looking for outdoor adventure, but without the adrenaline rush, there is the Snowcat Sleigh ride—a 23 minute mountain adventure perfect for families or romance.

Inside the resort’s beautifully appointed buildings the service is grounded by attentive personnel, well-designed suites and rooms (many are residences). And once you’ve had enough of the outdoors pampering of all kinds are available at the 35,000-foot Spa Montage. Fine dining, concierges to plan your every moment, and daily kids’ activities called Paintbox mean you can truly call this a retreat.

Although you’ll have to drive or take a resort shuttle, Park City is vibrant town, with over a hundred restaurants, comes to life each night in the winter with live music at hotspots like Vista Lounge, where cheese fondue and warm cider are must-have items.

All in all Park City, Utah and it’s gorgeous crown jewel Montage Deer Valley will make the perfect winter get away for couples, families or groups of friends.
