Kids

Some of Deer Valley Resort's greatest adventures come in pint-sized packages. Our kid-friendly skiing, childcare programs and Summer Adventure Camp are designed for the ultimate in fun and adult-approved peace of mind. From toddlers to teens, Deer Valley's children's programs provide kids with creative, age-appropriate activities in a small group setting.

Winter Ski and Childcare Programs

By limiting the instructor-to-child ratio, the Deer Valley Gold Standard of Instruction, we ensure that each child receives the absolute best care while you're away. Whether they're crafting an art project in our Children's Center or befriending our fuzzy mascots on the Adventure Trails, they'll never run out of excitement. Deer Valley's limited number of daily lift ticket sales also means that our littlest skiers have more terrain for an enhanced learning experience.
