Utah's Montage Deer Valley is More Than Just a Winter Destination Resort

Here’s your assignment. From your travel thesaurus select another phrase for mountaintop luxury. If you’re stumped, don’t worry, I’ve got an answer: Deer Valley in Park City, Utah.

By offering such amenities as lodging, ski valets and groomed-to-perfection slopes, it became one of North America’s first ski areas catering to first-class customers. Its extravagance is three-decades-old; so is a summer visit to the noted winter retreat wise? I investigated this premise from the area’s most lavish digs — Montage Deer Valley.
