Deer Valley’s magical holiday events have become beloved annual traditions for the entire Park City community, locals and visitors alike. Deer Valley makes coming up with gift ideas a synch with products from their Resort stores, gift cards and more.
To celebrate Christmas, Santa Claus himself will visit Deer Valley on Friday, December 24, 2010. The jolly old elf will be found in the Snow Park Lodge area at the Resort base from 9 to 11 a.m., and from noon to 1:30 p.m., and will visit guests in the Silver Lake (mid-mountain) area. Guests are invited to bring a camera and have their picture taken with Santa.
Another highlight of Deer Valley’s holiday season is the annual torchlight parade. The parade takes place Thursday, December 30, 2010, at dusk (approximately 6 p.m.). The Resort’s renowned Ski School will dazzle with torches, synchronized skiing and all sorts of “illuminating” moves. The parade takes place on Big Stick ski run on Bald Eagle Mountain and is best viewed from the plaza area of Snow Park Lodge, where complimentary hot cider and cookies will be served.
