We are really excited to be staying at the Montage Deer Valley as their guest and equally happy to be sharing this Deer Valley, Utah family vacation guide with you!
Day two of our Utah adventure was full of thrills!
Pete, Ash and Emmy woke up early and went for a hike up Deer Valley Mountain. They took Red Cloud Trail up the hill and then took the chair lift back down. While they were exploring nature I was writing yesterday’s post. It worked out perfectly! The night before we saw a moose right outside our window, while Pete and Maddie were at the store and they didn’t believe us. I tried to get a picture but it was too dark. He didn’t think that moose would come this close to the resort, so it made me immensely happy to hear that he was told to stay away from moose on the hike and that there is one that likes to visit the resort in the evenings!
On the hike they passed through green forests and meadows of tall grass till the reached the top with forever views!
After that we headed over to Park City Resort to go on the Alpine Slide and Roller Coaster! While the rest of my family had some wild fun, I took the chair lift on the “scenic” tour which lasts an hour and it was like being in heaven. So peaceful!
Here is a video Emmy filmed on the slide with Pete! The slide is 3,000 feet long!
Back at Montage Deer Valley we relaxed in the afternoon with this view!
And then it was back to Main Street for a walking Ghost Tour!
We learned about this tour in the museum and it’s held at 8pm every night in the summer. It’s the perfect mix of history and campfire ghost stories. It’s perfect for the 10+ year old crowd, although Emmy did enjoy it. We told her they were all made up stories, which they very well could be… but I just really enjoyed the historical aspect and the insight as to what the town has gone through. The 1918 pandemic flu hit the town hard along with the challenges that miners faced everyday. One of my favorite parts about traveling is learning about history where it happened, not just from a book. The girls all take home so much from these trips too.
If this is your first time to Park City and Deer Valley I recommend planning out your days as soon as you arrive. The concierge at the Montage is so knowledgeable and really helped us plan some amazing things. We have been planning our days around the must see activities offered at the resort and that of the town and we have been going to sleep exhausted! There is so much to see and do here!
I can’t believe that slide is so long! It looked like they were riding it forever. 😉
The ghost tour sounds like fun! I’m not a kid anymore but I’m still thrilled whenever I hear about ghost stories especially when told during campfire sessions. I recall that my friends and relatives used to tell us real stories about ghosts because their third eye is open and they are more sensitive with the people we normal people can’t see.
I would love to go here for a vacation. The Walking Ghost tour would be a fun way to spend the evening.
The Walking Ghost tour would be something I would enjoy doing too!
I am really enjoying your travel posts. I have always wanted to go to Utah and explore. Looks like there are some great things to do there with the family.
Deer Valley looks so beautiful. I would love to go with the family. The kids would love it there.
Looks like a peaceful place. Definitely somewhere kids need to be at times & away from technology 😛
nice place.. how long did you stay there? looks like you had a wonderful time
That looks like a really fun, relaxing place to visit on vacation! I’d be way too scared to go on that zipline though!
What a fun place to bring the kids! I did a walking ghost tour in Edinburgh, Scotland years ago…I would love to do that one!
Utah is a great place to visit. Looks like your family had a great time.
Deer Valley is gorgeous! I totally want to take my family sometime.
I’ve heard so many good things about Utah. I would love to visit this place someday.
Wow this sounds like so much fun, thanks for sharing the video. I’ve never been to Utah but would love to visit someday.
I so need to hop on that alpine sled slide! I am so jealous of that!
This looks like an amazing place. I would love to visit Utah and especially see that slide!
Love the video! We need to take more videos when we are on vacation. Thanks for sharing!
Oh wow, those views are breathtaking! That slide would freak me out though, lol.
Looks like a fun place to visit! I would love to take my family there!
My husband has been to Utah and he says it is the most beautiful place! I can’t wait to plan a trip there someday!
Looks like you and your family had a great time vacationing. Looks like so much fun!
I think my family and I would really benefit from a weekend close to nature like this. We are in Las Vegas, so the drive would not be too outrageous and the stunning scenery alone makes it well worth it.
That looks awesome. Looks like you had a great time and Utah has a lot to offer for the entire family.
What breathtaking views you captured! I’d love for my kids to see that
I love reading about travel posts. It gives me ideas about where to go!
These are just gorgeous pictures of Deer Valley. It reminds me of our area on top of the ski hill we have in my home town. I too love the history aspects of areas I visit. The ghost walk sounds like it would be an awesome time indeed. Thanks for sharing.
Looks like a lot of fun!
Her sweet voice! Adorable! It looks like a great place for families, especially those who love the outdoors.
That slide looks crazy! I don’t know if I could go down that but it looks like fun.
Excellent footage on the slide, it totally felt like I was there. That is way cool. I love checking out new towns.
It looks beautiful out there. It would be a nice change of pace from our Los Angeles life.
What a gorgeous place! Looks like a lot of family fun.
What a great place for a vacation! I would love a get away like that
What an experience. Lovely place.
It looks like you guys had a great time there. I am going to have to visit sometimes.
What a great weekend family trip. I love the video and the alpine slide looks really fun. I used to love those slides growing up.
The slide looks like so much fun. I would love to stay at this resort. I would love to wake up to a view like that every day. Moose sightings would be cool too.
I’ve never been to Utah and it’s one state I would love to visit. It looks so beautiful.
What a fun trip! Always love reading about your families travels!
This looks like an amazing trip!
I only visited Utah during a layover in an airport, but it looks like a place that has a lot to offer in the nature department. I like the scenery shown here.
We haven’t been to Utah yet but this resort looks like a really fun place. My kids would go nuts for that Alpine Slide. They went on one once in SC and loved it.
I love alpine areas so much and your trips looks gorgeous. Right now I am in a short holiday trip on my hometown, also an alpine settle. I love the fresh air and the landscapes!
