Deer Valley Resort offers easy first steps into alpine skiing with 26km (221ha) of ski trails in the lightest category. In the US, easy ski-runs are marked with a green dot. These slopes are spread all over the skiing area so that beginners may gain a complete overview of the entire resort. Most of the slopes suitable for beginners can be found around the 2,774m (9,100ft) high Flagstaff Mountain. The runs below the three 4-seater chairlifts Silver Strike Express, Northside Express and Ruby Express are highly recommendable. There are trails labeled with a blue square, such as Lost Boulder, Hawkeye, Lucky Star or Sidewinder (see slope map). According to American standards, this group of slopes can be categorized as intermediate but the runs are well groomed and only slightly tilted, making them perfectly suitable for beginners. The green marked Success run down to the 4-seater chairlift Carpenter Express at the Snow Park Lodge or the Deer Hollow slope down to the Mountaineer Express at the Little Baldy Peak (2,423m/ 7,950ft) are well suitable to exercise one's ski skills.
The Deer Valley Resort is awarded 4.5 out of 5 stars in the beginners' category.
