Deer Valley ski resort - Park City U
Project type: Parks and Recreation, Winter Sports
Quality of Information: Moderate
Site Survival: UnknownView Project in a Separate Window
Deer Valley Resort near Park City UT is one of Utah’s major ski areas, along with Park City, Alta and Snowbird. It is ranked among the top ski resorts in the country, thanks to the quality of powder snow in the Wasatch Mountains.
Skiing began at Deer Valley with the Park City Winter Carnivals of the 1930s and the Works Progress Administration (WPA) built some of the first ski trails and other facilities during the winter of 1936-1937.
No clear trace of the WPA’s work remains, given the massive enlargement of Deer Valley ski area and condominium complex in recent years.

Much of the New Deal era structures were probably lost when the modern and expanded Deer Valley ski resort opened in 1981. This resort has also hosted events in the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake.
