      Leisure skiing in Utah on 40km (336ha) of ski trails in the intermediate category

      Ambitious leisure skiers get their money worth at Deer Valley Resort. Apart from well groomed slopes, one is rewarded by a breathtaking view on the mountainous and utterly picturesque surroundings. In the US, slopes labeled with one or two blue squares are suitable for intermediate skiers. The two blue squares are especially directed at advanced intermediate skiers as these ski-runs are more challenging.
      The majority of Deer Valley slopes is directed at ambitious and sportive leisure skiers. Particularly the slopes starting at 2,865m (9,400ft) altitude are well suitable for skiers on intermediate level as well as professional winter sports athletes. More than 98% of the ski-runs require intermediate or even advanced skiing skills. Stein's Way, marked with two blue squares, offers a unique opportunity to train one's carving swings on the fine powder of Utah. A short section of the Stein's Way slope belongs to the difficult category and thus requires a certain level of technical skills to be able to ski here, allowing a playful combination of technique and fun. The slope is named after the Norwegian Olympia winner Stein Eriksen, the acting honorable ambassador of the Deer Valley Resort. The wider ski-runs, such as Nabob, Keno and Legal Tender (all three marked with a blue square), leading to the 4-seater chairlift Wasatch Express, invite to have a little cruise in Utah's extraordinary snow world.
      Due to the altitude and the dry climatic conditions on-site, the snow is extremely powdery and fluffy, and thus cannot be compared to the snow consistency of most European ski regions. This kind of snow is a specialty of Park City and other surrounding ski areas. Not only the ski trails of Bald Mountain, but also other parts of the ski region would fully satisfy any intermediate skier, for instance, Supreme (one blue square) or Orion (one/two blue squares) on the 2,917m (9,570ft) high Empire Mountain, the highest point of the entire ski region.
      Providing outstanding snow quality, Deer Valley Resort can be graded 4 out of 5 stars in the intermediate category.
