PARK CITY, Utah, Dec. 9, 2010 /PRNewswire/ --Montage Deer Valley opened today in the year-round community of Park City, Utah, less than five minutes from the historic town's vibrant Main Street and an easy 40-minute drive from Salt Lake City International Airport (SLC).
Reminiscent of great mountain lodges, this is the third destination and first mountain resort opening by ultra-luxury hotel company Montage Hotels & Resorts. Set in a grand mid-mountain location at Empire Pass with 154 deluxe guestrooms, and more than 66 suites and private residences, Montage Deer Valley offers true ski-in, ski-out access to Deer Valley Resort, named North America's #1 ski resort for the fourth consecutive year by the readers of SKI magazine.
"We are excited to open Montage Deer Valley in one of the most breath taking settings in North America. Our first mountain resort complements our flagship resort in Laguna Beach and our city hotel in Beverly Hills. Montage Deer Valley is an iconic resort, built in one of the nation's most majestic locations, with truly incredible amenities, and a remarkably gracious and attentive staff," said Alan J. Fuerstman, Founder and CEO of Montage Hotels & Resorts.
Three high-speed chair lifts are literally outside the resort's front door, providing a true ski-in/ski-out experience. There is also an abundance of activities for non-skiers to enjoy as well, such as sleigh rides, snowshoeing, ice skating, renowned shopping and more. During warm weather months, guests will discover a whole new palette of alpine activities, including horseback riding, blue-ribbon fly-fishing, championship golf, mountain biking and trail hiking among other adventures. Whatever the season, visitors to the resort can revel in Park City's majestic setting, breathe in fresh mountain air and enjoy the signature 35,000 square-foot alpine inspired Spa Montage.
"Montage Hotels & Resorts has a passion for spa and culinary arts, and Montage Deer Valley is proud to carry on this fine tradition" continued Alan J. Fuerstman. From the signature restaurant, Apex, a mountain American grill inspired by the freshest farm-to-table ingredients, to Daly's Pub & Rec, our interpretation of a gourmet gastro-pub offering all of the guests favorite pastimes, including bowling and a nostalgic video arcade.
Reflecting its commitment to the arts and true to its name, the Montage Deer Valley is complimented throughout with a museum quality collection of more than 100 paintings and works of art and sculpture influenced by nature, wildlife and western heritage.
