Sign to Mayflower Lift at Deer ValleyThis morning, Bob Wheaton, President and General Manager of Deer Valley Resort, announced that Deer Valley has made official application to Wasatch County for purposes of expanding the resort into the Mayflower area of Deer Valley.  While the idea of this type of expansion has floated around town for over the past twenty years, it was always stymied due to lack of cooperation of the various partners involved in the project.  Those roadblocks now appear to have been removed.

The very preliminary concept would be to install three to four new lifts to the south of the existing Mayflower Lift, with access to the entire ridge (known as Dutch Ridge) south of Deer Valley’s existing terrain.  This would provide for some excellent skiing for all skill levels with north facing aspects.  Residential development in the form of condominiums and home sites are also included in the proposal. In addition, this new lift system would provide access directly to the top of Bald Mountain from this area, eliminating the need to ski through Snow Park as is currently the case. 

Please give us a call if you would like further information.  We will continue to update our clients of the proposal as it moves through the approval process.
