In Addition Deer Valley will continue its highly popular Men’s and Women’s Adult Specialty Clinics this season, conducted by Deer Valley’s top ski instructors. The clinics feature stance, balance and alignment analysis, Dartfish technology video analysis, new equipment demo and a get-acquainted social, as well as multiple hours on the slopes perfecting and enjoying the sport!
