Nightlife centers on Park City, which is hopping all winter. "More and more skiers and snowboarders are relying on the word of their peers when they make resort choices," said Mountain News President and Publisher Rob Brown, whose company publishes OnTheSnow.com. "We believe the importance of reader advisories will continue to grow each year and these annual awards provide a peek into their thinking." Reviewers were clear in their comments: "Hospitality is out of this world, a lesson in customer service. Overall, a wonderful experience… The best on-slope cuisine in the world… The staff and patrol are very friendly and helpful and everyone there seems determined to insure that you have a good time…" Deer Valley is a well-rounded ski resort for skiers of all capabilities.
