Deer Valley reveals plans for newly acquired terrain

The new ski facilities will be called the Deer Valley East Village, and will be located along highway U.S. 40 headed southbound to Heber City

PARK CITY, Utah – Following Deer Valley Resort’s 2023 acquisition of Mayflower Resort, Deer Valley has recently announced the new name and the plans for the base village and ski portal on it’s newly acquired terrain.

The brand new ski facilities will be called the Deer Valley East Village, and will be located along highway U.S. 40 headed southbound to Heber City.

“At Deer Valley Resort, we are proud of our legacy as a top-tier ski destination, and we’re staying true to our founding principles set over four decades ago,” said Todd Bennett, president and COO of Deer Valley Resort.

“This expansion improves our resort’s accessibility and enriches the guest experience with additional world-class amenities. We will honor our history and strengthen our ties to the community as we expand over the next several years.”

Deer Valley East Village, a project by Extell Development Company in partnership with Deer Valley Resort, is set to include a state of the art skier service facility.

This facility will house ski school, children’s programs, rentals, retail, and dining choices. The addition of 1,200 new parking spaces exclusively for day-skiers is geared towards enhancing accessibility for the resort and playing a role in easing traffic in Park City.

Deer Valley East Village is situated at the base of a significant terrain expansion, where Deer Valley plans to introduce more than 3,700 acres of new ski terrain.

This will include 16 new chairlifts, featuring a ten passenger gondola, and will offer ski access across four new peaks, connecting the existing terrain with the newly added Deer Valley terrain.

The rollout of the new terrain will occur over multiple seasons, with the majority opening in the 2025/2026 winter season.

Upon completion, Deer Valley will consist of over 5,726 acres of skiable terrain, accessible via 37 chairlifts serving 238 ski runs.

“Deer Valley East Village is a long-anticipated project that will serve as the heart of the expanded terrain at Deer Valley Resort. With careful planning, we’ve curated a village that will redefine luxury and offer unparalleled amenities for our guests,” said Gary Barnett, founder and chairman of Extell Development Company.

“Our partnership with Deer Valley signifies our dedication to creating a destination where luxury, recreation, and accessibility harmoniously come together.”

In addition to the expansion of terrain and new ski facilities, Deer Valley East Village will also contain 800 hotel rooms, nearly 1,700 residential units, 250,000 square feet of retail and commercial space, and 68,000 square feet for recreation.

The Grand Hyatt Deer Valley, which is expected to open in late 2024, will introduce 387 guestrooms, 40 suites, 55 private residences, and nearly 40,000 square feet of conference and event space.
