Deer Valley Resort
Deer Valley spent nearly $8 million over the summer. Replacing an old lift on Little Baldy Mountain with a new high-speed detachable quad named the Mountaineer Express. Snowmaking continues on the radar with the installation of a booster station this summer that brings water up Empire Canyon making it possible to make snow and open that area much earlier. That brings snowmaking to more than 70 of its 100 runs.
Deer Valley was rated North America's No. 1 resort five years in a row by Ski Magazine, going back to the 2007-2008 season. This year it was rated No. 2 behind Canada's Whistler Blackcomb. Also in the top ten were Park City Mountain Resort (No. 4) and Canyons (No. 10).
