Deer Valley Resort Ranked #1 For Fourth Year In A Row

Utah ski resorts continue to rack up honors. In the latest, announced yesterday, Deer Valley Resort was named the top resort in North America by the readers of Ski Magazine, for an unprecedented 4th year in a row. The Park Record newspaper has this article about the ranking. Below are excerpts.

For the fourth year in a row, 20,000 readers of SKI Magazine have selected Deer Valley Resort as the No. 1 resort in North America.

The results of the closely watched survey were announced Thursday night, said Jessica Kunzer, spokesperson for Ski Utah.

No other resort has topped the rankings four years in a row.

"It's quite an honor pretty darn incredible," said Bob Wheaton, president and general manager.

It also marks 10 years Deer Valley finished in the top three.

In the subcategories, the resort finished first in grooming, guest service, dining and lodging, and second place in lifts, weather and family programs.

"All the people on staff made this happen every day," he said. "It's something we can't let off the gas on one little bit. Yesterday's accomplishments are just that."

Wheaton said he credits peer mentoring for the high level of service his employees provide guests.

"If you're in a position to provide an elevated level of service, and are provided the tools to do that, the response you get back from guests is very positive and reinforces what you're doing," he said.

Park City Mountain Resort was ranked No. 5 overall and has been in the top five for six of the past seven years. It was in the top 10 for nine subcategories.
