Winter Activities

Skiing or not, there are plenty of snowy activities to keep you in the winter spirit including Nordic skiing, dog sledding, horse-drawn sleigh rides, hot air ballooning and much more.


Deer Valley Resort offers the excitement of NASTAR ski racing at its race course on Bald Mountain near the Silver Lake Lodge. All races will be held daily from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on the Dual GS venue (weather permitting). For exceptions to the schedule please click here.

NASTAR is the largest recreational ski race program in the wold. Developed by SKI Magazine in 1968, and now managed by the U.S. Ski Team, NASTAR is available at over 120 of the nation's premier resorts. This fun, competitive and easily accessible racing program allows racers of all ages and abilities a means to compare themselves with one another, regardless of when and where they race. This is accomplished by establishing the National Standard on each NASTAR course and through a racer handicap system. Each time you race NASTAR, you could win a Platinum, Gold, Silver or Bronze medal based on the handicap you earn. On Saturdays (schedule permitting), race against the daily time posted by Deer Valley’s NASTAR pacesetter, three-time Olympian, Heidi Voelker.

To expedite the registration process, please complete the NASTAR Registration Form and the Race Hill Release Form and bring them with you to the Race Course start facility.

For more information, please contact the Race Course start facility at 435-645-7230. You can also pre-register and check your race results online at nastar.com.
