Whether you’re looking for the thrill of a mountain bike ride, a relaxing hike up the mountain, or the experience of a concert in an amphitheater, Deer Valley Resort in Park City has options for everyone.
Deer Valley Resort Senior Communications Director Lara Brucker summarized the many options every customer has when they make a trip to the resort.
“We give our customers the option of whether or not to go biking or hiking, and no matter which one they choose we’ve made it so that they won’t have to worry about being interrupted by the other,” Brucker said. “If they choose to go hiking, they won’t be bothered by any mountain bikers. If they go biking, they won’t be bothered by any of the hikers.”
Since last year, Deer Valley Resort has worked hard to improve their mountain bike trail so that bikers of all skill levels have access to a trail that is comfortable for them.
“Last year we started working on this new trail called the ‘Tidal Wave,’ which is a new downhill bike trail for regular mountain bikers, and we decided to expand on that by working on a trail called ‘The Holy Roller,’ which is designed to help those who are novice mountain bikers,” Brand Director Coleen Reardon said.
Deer Valley Resort doesn’t just provide mountain biking and hiking for their residents; Events/Promotions manager Kirsten Castle said the resort also plays host to festivals and concerts throughout the summer.
“We run a series of concerts every summer now,” Reardon said. “We have various genres such as rock, opera, symphony — you name it.”
Reardon said Wednesday night concerts are most popular because they are free and families are able to bring picnic baskets to enjoy the show together.
The resort will host a dozen different Utah Symphony performances throughout July and August. Some highlights include “DreamWorks Animation in Concert” and “The Music of David Bowie.” On August 19, the Steve Miller Band will close out the summer concert season.
