Is Deer Valley Good For Beginner Skiers?
Yes – the resort is perfect for novice skiers. 27% of the resort’s slopes are rated ‘green’ (extremely easy, flat slopes) and there are multiple areas designed ‘slow ski’ areas, ensuring that novices of any age can get to grips with the slopes without feeling nervous or uncomfortable. Such slopes ensure that there aren’t more advanced skiers zooming past at high speeds, and beginners can feel free to take their time and get their bearings.
The best slopes for beginners are detailed below.
Silver Strike Express
Express chairlifts complement the ski-in/ski-out lodges close to this slope, where the gentle gradients and immaculately groomed slopes. One to take the kids for their first big ski!
The express chairlift of the Northside Express is located just outside the entrance of Deer Valley’s Grand Lodge, making access to the slope child’s play. Another great introduction to skiing in Deer Valley for adults and children alike.
With a ski lift that will have you at the top of the slope in less than three minutes, the Ruby Express originates at the Empire Lodge and features a gentle, well-maintained slope that’s great for skiing neophytes to sink their teeth into.
