Beautiful surroundings and pleasant personnel
New ownership with increased prices and diminished quality of skiing

Full review

While still a beautiful resort the overall special feeling of past years has been diminished by a much less apparent skier oriented and increased bottom line oriented new ownership. The slopes have been much more crowded. While in part due to a great snow season the addition of IKON pass holders has significantly contributed as has the increased "maximum" ticket sales on a given day. Is the welcoming of snow boarders on the horizon? Overall the skier experience has diminished. Limited snow making and therefore grooming in the early season was a clear indication of what was to come. Higher prices with diminished service. Had there not been abundant snow fall I wonder what ski conditions would have been like. I hope this is not the beginning of the end of Deer Valley as a special place.
