According to communications manager, Emily Summers, Deer Valley has “60 miles of maintained trails.”  Some of these trails are designated as “hiking only,” but most have dual uses. Deer Valley operates a full-service bike school throughout the summer.

Additionally, Deer Valley offers other ways to get acquainted with the mountain.  The historical society conducts free guided hikes the second Sunday of every month through October, and one can also hire a mountain guide any day of the week.

In the evenings at Deer Valley, the music begins.  The resort will be offering free Wednesday night concerts featuring local bands.  Weekends will be showcasing musical acts from all across the country.  Please click here for more information.

Also, if residents or visitors need a place to drop off their children for a day, a week, a month or even the whole summer, Deer Valley offers a day camp throughout the summer.  According to Summers, “it’s a day camp, and you can do a per-day rate, so it’s good for people who are visiting.”

Deer Valley’s summer operations will run until Labor Day, September 2.
