Deer Valley Resort to Undergo Major Expansion

Alterra Mountain Company has announced a major terrain expansion of Deer Valley Resort that will add 3,700 acres to the ski-only destination located in the Wasatch Mountains in Park City, Utah. Additionally, the development of a new village and portal will improve access to the resort while adding lodging, dining, and retail amenities in partnership with Extell Development Company.

The expansion is set to more than double Deer Valley’s skiable terrain, adding 16 new lifts and a new 10-passenger gondola. The diverse terrain will also be supported by a new snowmaking system. The last time Deer Valley saw a significant terrain expansion was for the 2007-08 winter season, with the addition of 200 acres of skiing on Lady Morgan Mountain.

The entire project will unfold over the next three seasons, with a significant portion of the new lifts and trails set to open as early as the 2025-26 winter season. When completed, Deer Valley will offer 5,726 acres of ski-only terrain spread across 10 mountains.

The Deer Valley investment is in addition to the $500 million capital program announced by Alterra earlier this year to enhance the guest and employee experience across its portfolio of 17 destinations.

The resort’s new terrain and village will be directly accessible from a new portal via U.S. Route 40, creating a major eastern portal that offers easy access to the resort from nearly every direction.

The village and portal will have over 1,200 new parking spots, and a new skier services facility offering an additional ski school, equipment rentals, F&B, and retail amenities.

In addition to the ski-specific amenities, the new village is slated to have over 800 hotel rooms across multiple properties, nearly 1,700 residential units, 250,000 square feet of retail and commercial space, and 68,000 square feet for a recreation center. Furthermore, the development is expected to create approximately 2,000 new Deer Valley job opportunities.
