From its ritzy bathrooms to tissues at every lift lines to world-class dining options, it’s no secret that Deer Valley was designed--and currently operates--with the monied crowd in mind, but that doesn't mean that a Deer Valley budget ski vacation is impossible. Lift tickets and lodging are easy to save money on via Ski.com’s travel packages, or you can simply opt for affordable, and nearby, Park City lodging.
Deer Valley dining is generally price, so pack a sandwich and enjoy it on the chairlift or grab a simple cup of Royal Street Café’s renowned turkey chili to the tune of $8. Located at the Silver Lake Village mid-mountain area, Royal Street Café is among the most affordable options if you choose to eat at Deer Valley with its entrees range from $31 to $50. You can also score some affordable après-ski grub and beers at EBS Lounge at the Snow Park Lodge base area.
Condos and townhomes are generally the way to go if you’re looking to save. Foxglove townhouses are a little less than a mile from Deer Valley’s base area and provide easy access to Park City’s historic Main Street, shops, clubs and restaurants. Built in 1997, all townhouse units are individual in design and offer a feeling of spaciousness and privacy. Each unit features a fully equipped kitchen, cozy fireplace, cable TV, DVD player and a private outdoor hot tub for post-skiing relaxation. Plus parking is never an issue because Foxglove provides an underground garage.
