Ski With A Pro At Deer Valley
The luxurious Montage Deer Valley resort is offering a unique special deal, a package that allows you to ski with and learn from top professional skiers.
The U.S. Ski and Snowboard Association is based in Park City. It is the US governing body for Olympic skiing and snowboarding and the parent organization of the U.S. Ski Team. Many Olympic and professional skiers have homes in Park City and nearby Deer Valley. The Montage has partnered with some of these top athletes to provide this opportunity.
NewsDay.com has this blog that explains the program. Here's an excerpt:
Three-day packages, available from Dec. 7, 2012, through April 15, 2013, start at $2,575 per person and include lift tickets, a full-day retreat with a pro from the U.S. Olympic Ski Team, breakfast and accommodations. That day with a pro sees one to four people skiing alongside an athlete in the Wasatch Mountains, with the skill level of the group taken into account.
Of course, when you are not skiing with one of the pros you are free to enjoy Deer Valley's immaculate slopes on your own, or jump over and sample Park City Mountain Resort or Canyons Resort.
The ski season is quickly approaching. Now's the time to find deals and book trips.
