Culinary Externships

Deer Valley's Culinary Arts, Baking and Pastry Externships are designed around the concept that has made our resort #1: classic, consistent, quality from a winning team.

Each externship is designed for you to take your skills to the next level - from the classroom to the professional kitchen. You will have the opportunity to work in various locations and become exposed to a diverse culinary experience, while building your confidence along the way.

In its 30-year history, Deer Valley Resort has received countless awards and recognition of which we are very proud. The Mariposa restaurant and Seafood Buffet have received prestigious Zagat Restaurant Guide awards, including #1 rankings since Zagat began rating Salt Lake in 1999. The Mariposa also consistently receives the Wine Spectator Award of Excellence. Deer Valley's Silver Lake Executive Chef, Clark Norris, was the first Utah chef invited to the prestigious James Beard House and was the inaugural recipient of Salt Lake Magazine's annual Best Chef Award in 2006. Salt Lake Magazine also honored Deer Valley Resort Director of Food and Beverage, Julie Wilson, in 2008 with the Lifetime Achievement Award. Deer Valley is consistently ranked #1 by the readers of SKI Magazine for on-mountain dining, grooming and guest service. Deer Valley has ten on-mountain restaurants that offer everything from casual dining to gourmet fare.
