Take a lesson this spring to perfect your technique on a blue-bird day.
Learning (or re-learning) to ski late in life can seem right up there with learning to ride a bike. Thankfully, once you make those first turns, skiing can also be just as intuitive. Whether you haven’t skied since grade school or you’ve never tried in your life, one resort have you cruising a wide variety of runs, even as a novice. With an award-winning ski school, expansive beginner terrain and impeccable grooming, Deer Valley Resort is perhaps the world’s best beginner resort. Here is our guide to getting back on the snow:
Back to School
To get the most out of your ski experience (and, in some cases, to save friendships, relationships and sanity) — take a lesson. Since the habits you form early on will become the foundation of your ski technique, taking the time to learn properly while you’re a blank slate will ensure easier progress toward more challenging terrain. We recommend starting with a private lesson, which can accommodate 1-5 skiers. A half-day lesson starts at $500 (for a 3-hour session from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.), and a full-day lesson is available for $790. More about Deer Valley ski school.
Where to Stay
Thanks to the mid-mountain Silver Lake Express chairlift, you need not necessarily stay at the base for easy access to ski school. Never-ever skiers can stay at Black Bear Lodge to enjoy the dining, shopping and apres-ski that Silver Lake Village offers, and take the lift to the base for lessons. Advanced beginners can take advantage of ski-in/ski-out accommodations on the green Silver Dollar run, where they can take the Success run to the base after a short stretch of intermediate terrain. Best lodging options for beginners.
Where to Ski
Deer Valley’s beginner-friendly layout allows novices to enjoy five of the resort’s six mountains, with a green run option from nearly every lift. Start at the base and take a lap on Success, or take the Silver Lake Express chairlift to Silver Lake Village, where you can enjoy a scenic, windy green run called Homeward Bound from the top of Baldy Mountain. You can also explore the sunny Deer Crest area, taking the green Little Stick run back to the base. When you start to feel comfortable on green runs, Deer Valley offers a gentle transition into blue (intermediate) runs with plenty of wide, well-groomed terrain to practice your turns. We recommend taking the Carpenter Express and trying Solid Mouldoon to start. Get to know the mountain.
When to Come
The warm weather and sunny skies that come with spring skiing make late February and March the perfect time to get back on the slopes. Without battling wind or cold temperatures, you can focus more on your technique and less on cold fingers. March is historically a strong month for snowfall, which means soft snow and easier turns. Start planning your trip.

“Flight” is located in a gated community at Canyons Resort with ski-in/ski-out access.
