Park City and/or Deer Valley in January

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

I'm planning my January trip to go watch the Deer Valley Freestyle World Cup. Will probably be there from the 5th-12th. The competitions generally don't start until 3 PM, so I'm trying to decide where to ski.

 

Since I have the Epic Pass, definitely will use that for a day or two at Canyons (I used to ski it when it was Park West.)

 

Does anyone know if they still offer the deal where you can fly into SLC and ski free at one of the resorts that day? I'm searching, but not finding it.

 

Liftopia "deals" are actually the same price as the regular lift tickets for Deer Valley. Do the grocery stores offer deals there for PC or Deer Valley?

 

Thanks in advance!

I'm actually going to be in Utah around the same time, and have been doing a bit of research (I actually have a thread here). The "Quickstart" program (free day) has been discontinued for this season (see this thread - http://www.epicski.com/t/122982/no-pc-quickstart-but-half-price-snowbird-alta-tix

In terms of discounts, I'm finding that Ski N See (local ski shop) has slighted discounted lift tickets - https://www.skinsee.com/discount-lift-tickets

Not sure about other local joints like Costco or grocery stores, but all my research seems to indicated that you will be shelling out a lot to ski DV and PC.

Thanks for the info!

 

Bummer that they ended the Quickstart deal.

 

Just saw the little caveat that you can't purchase the discount tickets for PC or DV at the Ski N See in PC. But worth stopping there in SLC. $108 for a lift ticket, to me, is insane!

 

As much as I love Alta and Snowbird, I don't want to spend 2 hours of my day driving to and from PC to get back for 3 PM to see the competitions. Although, I might go there on one of the earlier days.

 

I'll see what I can find out about the grocery stores there.

The Utah Avalanche Center sells discounted lift tickets through backcountry.com as a fundraiser each year.  Last year, you could use a 20% coupon on top of the already discounted tickets.  Prices worked out to roughly ~$60/day for PC area resorts and ~$50/day for LCC/BCC resorts.  There were very few blackout dates, making this a much better deal than liftopia, etc.  I believe the sale was early to mid December last year.  

 

Keep an eye here: http://utahavalanchecenter.org/ and here: http://www.backcountry.com/utah-avalanche-center?AID=10907924&PID=4485850&SID=kx6BeFZVEeOH0_5yRZDJqgcRU3_ApsO3_0_0_0

Alta/Bird are offering a discount lift ticket the day of arrival of $52, of course, I am not sure of what kind of bargain that is when you might  find a regular 1/2 day after 1pm ticket.
