Montage Deer Valley
The Montage hotel group put its luxury stamp on the slopes when it opened its 220-room mega-lodge in December 2010. Just a 40-minute drive from Salt Lake City in Deer Valley, the 13-floor property offers both Wasatch and Uinta range views and ski-in, ski-out access to three high-speed chairlifts and Main Street. But the real difference is in the indoor details. All rooms, for example, clock in at around 600 square feet and have a fireplace and patio or balcony. The hotel also has a 35,000-square-foot spa, the largest in Utah, as well as four dining venues, such as the new Yama Sushi restaurant and Daly’s pub—with a four-lane bowling alley. Après-ski includes a roaring fire in the great-room-style lounge, daily s’mores at happy hour, and regular appearances by Monty, the hotel’s friendly Bernese mountain dog.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
