Overview

 
Bald Mountain
Bald Mountain
Deer Valley Moutain Resort is a Ski Resort located just above Park City, Utah. Its highest lift served peak is Bald Mountain at an elevation of 9,434ft. Two minor peaks served by lifts include Flagstaff Mountain (9,187ft) and Bald Eagle Mountian (8,475ft). Most take the lift to the top and then ride down. However, there are a few brave ones out there that ride from the bottom to the top.

When the snow is melts in late spring (or early summer), mountain biking begins! According to their website, Deer Valley Mountain Resort is rated one of the top ten mountain bike destination by Mountain Bike Magazine. Many many different trails descend the ski slopes ranging from easy to double black diamond. The NCS (National Championships Series Downhill Course) is ranked as one of the hardest downhill courses in the U.S. (or so Deer Valley says).

With around 25 named trails, Deer Valley is an mountain biker paradise!

When to go

Summer and fall are the best times to go. Or anytime when the snow is clear from the slopes. Some years, the snow melts fast or there isn't a lot and the slopes will be clear by late spring. Or, there could be heavy amounts of snow which could delay the opening until early or mid summer. When we were there, there was still a fair amount of snow left on the slopes.

Red Tape

Only red tape is that it is not open in the winter

Safety?

Basic safety is a helmet. For those doing the harder moderates or black diamonds, chest protector and pads are a must for this area. Be safe, whatch for other bikers going up or down.
