With Father's Day just around the corner, it's time to celebrate and show appreciation for the incredible dads in our lives. If you're lucky enough to have a dad who can't resist the allure of the outdoors, a day spent skiing down pristine slopes, exploring breathtaking bike trails, or even showcasing his culinary skills in the kitchen, then you're in for a treat! We've curated a collection of last-minute gift ideas that are sure to thrill the adventurous Deer Valley dad in your life.



Give your dad the gift of unlimited lift-served mountain biking, hiking and scenic chairlift rides all summer with a 2023 Deer Valley Summer Season Pass.

Spread over six mountains and featuring up to 3,000 vertical feet of elevation change, Deer Valley offers nearly 70 miles of mountain bike trails, including five flow trails designed by Gravity Logic. Our fun and thrilling mountain bike and hiking trails are accessed via the Silver Lake Express chairlift at the base of the resort, Sterling Express located mid-mountain, and Homestake Express also located mid-mountain.

Purchase the 2023 Deer Valley Summer Season Pass by June 30, 2023, and you’ll receive a reduced price of $395


Whether your dad is an advanced biker or just starting out, the benefits of a mountain bike lesson can last a lifetime. He’ll gain confidence on singletrack, expand his skills on downhill trails, and conquer the thrilling flow trails such as Holy Roller, Undertow, Tidal Wave, or Tsunami. Let him work one-on-one with an instructor in a Private Lesson or book him an Adult Bike Clinic.

If he’s just starting out, Deer Valley also offers a great beginner's package which includes a bike rental, afternoon bike clinic, and a lift ticket - perfect for newbies to the sport or riders with limited experience with mountain biking. Packages can be booked by calling Deer Valley reservations at 435-645-6648. Read more about the benefits of taking a mountain bike lesson.
