Deer Valley: New High Speed Quad
Deer Valley Announces $8 Million in Improvements for 2012/13 Season
DEER VALLEY RESORT, PARK CITY, UTAH – Winter ski guests accustomed to Deer Valley's first-class service and amenities will be treated to even greater benefits with the Resort's scheduled $8 million worth of improvements for the 2012/2013 season. Leading the list of upgraded amenities is the replacement of the Deer Crest chairlift on Little Baldy Mountain with a high-speed detachable quad lift to be named Mountaineer Express chairlift which will increase the uphill skier capacity by 1,200 skiers per hour.
"Deer Valley Resort is dedicated to remaining the #1 resort in North America and we are continually assessing needed improvements that will be the most advantageous to our guests," said Bob Wheaton, resort president and general manager.
Additional improvements will include remodeling the Snow Park Restaurant, replacing the wooden deck at Empire Canyon Lodge with heated pavers, expanding snowmaking capabilities to more terrain in Empire Canyon and purchasing additional low-energy, air-water guns, and purchasing five additional Prinoth Snowcats, including one Beast Groomer.
