America's Best Ski Resorts

Slide 14 of 21

Deer Valley, Utah

Why Go: Skier-only Deer Valley is known as one of the most luxurious resorts in the country; staff will even carry your skis from a car to the base. The resort boasts five mountains, ample expert terrain (double-diamonds here are unforgiving—don’t get caught in Empire Canyon unless you know what you’re doing) and plenty of pristine groomed trails, like Nabob, Sunset and Sidewinder, for the intermediate crowd.

Where to Après: At the luxe St. Regis Deer Valley, superchef Jean-Georges Vongerichten’s J&G Grill has a phenomenal wine list. Sommelier Tony Landegent sources terrific California Cabernets and great Burgundies, while chef-de-cuisine Shane Baird prepares dishes like glazed Niman Ranch short ribs with apple-jalapeño puree and rosemary crumbs.
