A family-friendly winter travel guide to Park City’s Deer Valley Resort. I’ll tell you where to stay, what to do and where to eat. Perfect for skiers and non-skiers alike!
Last month I returned to one of my most favorite ski resorts in the country: Park City’s Deer Valley Resort. While I’ve been to Deer Valley and Park City multiple times over the years, this trip was extra special because it was my first time returning with my entire family.
Like so many families, we do not all ski at the same level. I’ve been skiing since I was 7 and would consider myself an intermediate level skier. My husband on the other hand? He has only skied a handful of times in the past and the same goes for my children.
Whether you’re a family full of avid skiers, only one spouse skies or you’re all beginners looking to learn or improve, Deer Valley has plenty of activities and opportunities to make all of your ski trip wishes come true.
Before we into the activities, let’s talk about lodging. Our family of four stayed in a beautiful two bedroom condo located inside The Lodges at Deer Valley.
As you can imagine, when traveling with kids it is always nice to have plenty of room to spread out and relax. The boys shared a bedroom with two twin beds and we had our own master bedroom with a king bed.
What’s even better is the condo came with a full kitchen and dining area – perfect for relaxing with cookies and coffee after our day of fun in the snow.
While there are many lodging options at Deer Valley, we highly recommend the Lodges, especially when traveling with kiddos.
Now that we’ve covered lodging, let’s talk about winter activities at Deer Valley! If you’re never gone snowshoeing before, I highly recommend the snowshoe and s’mores tour.
Lead by the team at All Seasons Adventures, this one hour tour included an easy, flat path to snowshoe followed by make-your-own s’mores by the fire.
Perfect for kids of all ages, I highly recommend this activity if you’re looking for something to do other than skiing at Deer Valley.
(Don’t worry, we skied!! We will get to that shortly!) How gorgeous is this snowshoeing view?!
The next activity we crossed off our bucket list was snowmobiling! You’d think living in Michigan that we would be experts but this was our first time.
I would recommend this for kids ages 6 and above. Our boys absolutely loved it and this was my husband’s favorite activity of the entire trip.
Of course, there was no…
