Three Days in Deer Valley

An itinerary for embracing the beauty and alpine air at Utah's premiere destination

Arrive & Relax

Settle into sophisticated tranquility at the Silver Baron Lodge. The property offers quick access to the mountain while maintaining a sense of peaceful seclusion. Accommodations range from hotel rooms to four-bedroom condominiums styled with inviting furnishings, private decks, and hot tubs.

Kids will love the outdoor heated pool equipped with a waterslide, along with an on-property game room.

Tip: Use the DV Direct app for complimentary shuttle to all resort activities and in-town transportation. Silver Baron is also accessed by the free city-wide bus system and just one mile from Park City’s Historic Main Street.

Day One

Do breakfast on the deck at Deer Valley Café, a delectable summer dining experience.

From Silver Baron, take the scenic stroll on paths surrounded by lush brush, and find yourself at the lakeside restaurant and deli. Overlooking the mountains of Deer Valley, choose from a selection of grab-and-go items and healthy breakfast offerings.

As the Café sits pretty on the lake, indulge in fun-filled water activities ideal for all ages. Park City SUP’s summer home, Pebble Beach at Deer Valley Resort, is a no boat, no wave experience. Rent standup paddle boards, kayaks, and inflatable water toys.

For dinner, check out The Brass Tag in the Lodges at Deer Valley. Located next to Silver Baron, this seasonal eatery offers fine Italian cuisine like brick-oven pizza.

Day Two

In winter, the mountain is a skier’s paradise; in summer, it becomes rich in green landscape and infused with wildlife.   

Spend the day on the mountain, kicking things off with a leisurely chairlift up Silver Lake Express from the base and then board Sterling Express at mid-mountain to access Bald Mountain. At the top, stretch your legs and explore one of the many hiking trails.

Hungry? Located mid-mountain at the Silver Lake Lodge, Royal Street Café offers yummy cuisine with scenic deck dining. Menu options include staples like Deer Valley’s Turkey Chili and carefully curated milkshakes.

Treat yourself to an afternoon massage at Align Spa conveniently located at the Silver Baron.  

Day Three

Day three is all about Historic Park City. Roam Main Street for shopping and lunching before gearing up for a picturesque evening, unique to the area.

The Deer Valley summer concert series is stunning and special, located at the Snow Park Outdoor Amphitheater (walking distance to Silver Baron). Bring blankets and a picnic dinner (pack your own or pre-order through the venue); beer and wine are available for purchase.

The hillside amphitheater is simply lovely; unwind or dance to the tunes of incredible live music; 2024 lineups include: the music of Whitney Houston; tributes to Joni Mitchell, Carole King & Carly Simon; an ode to Disney and more. Check the schedule for dates and details.

Second Home Ownership in Park City

Dreaming of a second home in the heart of Utah? Here’s what you need to know, courtesy of Paradise Valley’s Lindsay Wing, Engel & Völkers, a luxe realtor who specializes in Park City area ownership.

70% of Wing’s Arizona-based clients also own a second or third home in Park City. It's only an hour flight from Phoenix, and once landing in SLC, the drive is fast and easy.

For second home ownership, Park City is a great investment. The popular tourist destination flaunts high occupancy rates and a strong rental income potential.

Wing says the average single-family home within Park City limits is $5.2M and the average condo is $2.2M. To compare, the average SF home in Aspen is $13M. In April 2024, Park City home prices were up 19.7% compared to last year.
