Deer Valley, Utah (PRWEB) September 30, 2009
For the third time in a row, and the fifth time in a decade, Deer Valley Resort was voted the No. 1 ski resort in North America by readers of SKI Magazine. Rising from fifth place, Park City Mountain Resort (PCMR) was voted No. 4 overall. All three resorts were in the top 20, and The Canyons (20th) ranked highly in accessibility, on-mountain dining and lodging. Naturally, Utah resorts fared best in the "quality of snow" category, one of a dozen criteria used in the evaluation. Alta Resort, less than one hour from Park City, finished first for its powder.

Bill Marolt, president and CEO of the U.S. Ski and Snowboard Association, said the community is blessed to have three world-class resorts in town. "Deer Valley's consistent top ranking is a tribute to its staff and the leadership of Bob Wheaton. We have seen that firsthand as Deer Valley has established itself as the premier competition venue for the annual FIS World Cup and the upcoming 2011 Freestyle World Championships," he said.
Since opening in 1981, Deer Valley Resort in Park City, Utah has become known for its revolutionary approach to ski area service. Deer Valley Resort is committed to providing a level of care rarely found at a ski resort; delivering classic, consistent, and quality service both on and off the mountain.
