The founder of Deer Valley Resort, Edgar Stern wanted to combine his love of skiing with the service, food and amenities of a five star hotel. Stern was known as a visionary. “He built Deer Valley as a first-class resort when nothing was happening in Utah. Everybody thought he was crazy,” said Deer Valley’s President/General Manager Bob Wheaton. “He stuck with high quality and high service even through hard times. Sometimes the chips were down, but his vision never wavered.”
