Deer Vally Ranked Number One Resort for Five Years Running

Posted By: The Ski Channel on October 10, 2011 10:10 am

For the fifth year in a row, the readers of SKI Magazine have named Deer Valley Resort the #1 ski resort in North America. Not only has no other ski resort earned this ranking more than three years in a row, but over the course of the past eleven years, Deer Valley has not seen lower than third place! 

“No other ski resort has accomplished anything close to this,” says Bob Wheaton, Deer Valley Resort president and general manager. “And I think the reason is that no other ski resort comes close to matching Deer Valley’s amazing vacation experience. It’s all because of our staff. The culture here is to put the guest first at all times, and our employees not only accomplish this every day, but enjoy it, whether working our chairlifts, in our Children’s Center, our Ski School, our Deer Valley Resort Lodging and Reservations department, in our restaurants, offices, maintenance facilities, anywhere in our organization. My hat is off to our incredibly dedicated crew. This honor goes to them and I thank and congratulate the entire Deer Valley Resort team.”

In addition to being named the #1 Resort overall out of 60 North American resorts, Deer Valley takes the cake in other specific categories. Highlights included the Resort being given #1 rankings for grooming, service, weather, on-mountain food, lodging and dining. The Resort also received #2 rankings for lifts and access, and #3 rankings for digital presence and overall satisfaction.

SKI Magazine’s “Top 60 Resort Guide” survey’s over 20,000 of its readers through an independent research firm. SKI readers ski an average of 23 days a year, making them a highly credible source for resort critques.
