Overview by Alistair Wearmouth

As if wrapped in the latest zany installation of Christo and Jeanne-Claude, Deer Valley is a lattice of metaphorical red carpet: trails groomed to perfection, multimillion-dollar lodges peppering the promontories, polite liftees who'd give palace butlers a run for their money, gold-and-marble-festooned lodge bathrooms ... It's almost too good to be true (and to be frank, a little unnerving if you're used to a little snowpack rough and tumble).

Deer Valley has raised its snow bar to the finest on-piste luxury, and they deliver in spades, setting the standard for ski resorts everywhere. Who wouldn't want tissue dispensers by all the lift lines or cordon-bleu mid-mountain cuisine? Of course, you pay for the pampering, with one of the country's highest-priced lift tickets.

Tucked in a wrinkle of the Wasatch Mountains only minutes from Utah's bustling Park City (2002 Olympic venue and host to winter's Sundance Film Festival), the Deer Valley vibe is distinctly more refined. No Mardi Gras beads and panties hanging from trees here. The resort grooms its runs like a pedigree poodle, and you could easily spend your day shuttling your way down relatively tight, tree-lined trails without so much as a divot to trouble your camber. Try the long blues on Flagstaff Mountain or cruise the sweetly long Jordanelle on Little Baldy Peak for a true appreciation of Deer Valley's impeccable vintage.

That's not to say Deer Valley simply craves a luxury-beats-all tag. "We used to be called Bambi Valley," one mountain host noted. "But that's changed with Empire Canyon, where we have terrain that's as steep as any." Hucksters should try the Daly Chutes and Daly Bowl
