Just Back From: The St. Regis Deer Valley

Our close friend and preferred partner, Jeremy McClellan,who represents Marriott International Luxury Brands, recently returned from a visit to The St. Regis Deer Valley. 

Hotel Recommendations:

  • Catering to families and multi-generational travel, The St. Regis Deer Valley offers a huge selection of guest rooms and suites.  A differentiator for the resort is the large choice of multi-bedroom suites ranging from one to four bedroom suites….in addition…they also have residential suites ranging from two to four bedrooms.  As a huge bonus, all suites and residential suites have a full designer kitchen….again, really the perfect home for families. 

  • Location, location, location!

    • Park City is only 40 minutes from Salt Lake City International Airport.  There is no easier ski destination to travel to with such great access to a major gateway offering flights around the world.  This is really ideal for families searching for ski destinations with direct flight accessibility.

    • The St. Regis Deer Valley is right next to the children’s ski school…so again, a perfect venue for families of all ages

  • After hitting the slopes…unwind in the Remede Spa where nothing helps those tired muscles recuperate like a great customized massage.  The last time I had been skiing was about three years ago and so my legs definitely felt the burn after day one…and the massage at the spa was EVERYTHING I needed and so much more!

  • J&G Grill – This is where customers enjoy breakfast, luncheon or dinner and the décor concept is all about the picture windows providing views of the mountains.  The bar seats lining the exhibition kitchen are always popular and no mountain restaurant would be complete without a two-sided wood-burning stone fireplace to ensure the ultimate coziness overload.

  • Brand Highlight – The Bloody Mary is a signature cocktail for St Regis brand and each property offers their own unique recipe.  Introducing The St. Regis Deer Valley 7452 (named after the altitude of the resort).

Destination Guide:

Tried and True:

  • Winter - Hit the Slopes!  Deer Valley is world famous for its incredible skiing.  With over 2,026 acres of terrain, skiers of all abilities will enjoy well-manicured slopes ranging from bunny hills to moguls.  A little interesting note for Deer Valley – no snowboarders are allowed.  As a skier, I actually appreciated this fast rule and enjoyed the ski only runs.  The total Deer Valley resort has 103 runs broken down between 27 beginner, 41 intermediate, 27 advanced and 5 expert lifts.  This ration really makes Deer Valley perfect for families and really for skiers of any skill level.

  • Summer – Mountain Biking!  Although a very niche market, Deer Valley is a haven for mountain bikers with over 70 miles of bike trails including three new flow trails designed by Gravity Logic.  These trails are accessed by three chairlifts and spread over six different mountains.  Silver Lake Express chairlift at the base of the resort, Sterling Express at mid-mountain and Ruby Express at Empire Canyon provide lift-served mountain biking at The St. Regis Deer Valley


Something New:

  • A Solstice Celebration – Picture historic main street of downtown Park City closed to traffic and a gorgeous communal dining table constructed and decorated by various local restaurants.  Organized by Park City Area Restaurant Association, Savor the Summit is a gorgeous event held each year on the June Saturday closest to the Summer Solstice.  Tickets may be purchased from the association directly and do sell out quickly.  (Photo Attached)

  • Alpine Distilling – Helmed by Rob Sargent, Alpine Distilling is an award winning producer of spirits including gin, vodka and bourbon.  While visiting The St. Regis Deer Valley I participated in the Gin Tasting Experience.  Full disclosure….I don’t really like Gin….that said however, I loved this experience which was the perfect mix of chemistry and storytelling while tasting and smelling various components of Gin.
