Average time to visit
The ski season in the United States is longer than that in Europe. Most resorts open sometime in November, with Thanksgiving (the fourth Thursday in that month) being a common opening time, and stay open until mid to late April. The exceptionally high altitude means December through to February can be extremely cold, with temperatures sometimes reaching as low as -12C, although the skiing conditions remain very good. Warmer temperatures in the Spring mean more variable skiing conditions and softer, forgiving snow.
To start planning your vacation to Montage Deer Valley
The luxury Montage in Deer Valley, Utah, is one of the resort's most luxurious hotels. Set on Empire Pass with fabulous views, its ski in/ski out access to some of North America's most exclusive skiing, ensures guests visit again and again.
A recent addition to Deer Valley, and with an enviable position on top of Empire Pass, Montage is one of the resort’s best lodges. Ski in/ski out, and adjacent to three high speed chair lifts, it has instant access to some of North America’s finest skiing, and is only a short drive away from the main attractions of Park City. The Montage Deer Valley is a high end hotel, with an impressive range of leisure facilities and five restaurants, making it ideal for families. It’s easy to be overwhelmed by its size on arrival, but the welcome you receive, and the exceptionally helpful and friendly concierge services on hand, ensure you have a thoroughly enjoyable and fun stay. The rooms and suites are all beautifully decorated, and we especially like the Vista Lounge – the grandest part of the entire hotel. Live music is played here each day, and during Sundance, you’ll find all sorts of different events taking place there.
Regionally sourced, the food at Montage is truly American and really good - try the Kobe beef, it’s incredible, or if puddings are more your thing, the Granny Smith lasagne. There’s also an impressive range of wines from the Napa Valley, as well as bourbons. Everything you need is on hand at the resort, from a ski rental shop, to ski valet services who can not only advise on where to ski each day, but organize passes and lessons and other recreational activities including snowmobiling, sleigh rides and a go on the bobsled course.

The Montage opened its doors in 2010 bringing a new level of luxury to Deer Valley. The facilities here are second to none, and if you are traveling with children you are onto a winner with their supervised kids club Paintbox. The kids will also love the snowtubing outside and the smores toasted on the fire every evening.There is no getting away from the fact this is a large hotel, but if you are looking for the ultimate hassle-free luxury ski vacation with incredible skiing on your doorstep then look no further.
