Deer Valley Has Discount Ski Passes for 2008-09


DEER VALLEY RESORT, PARK CITY, UTAH (June 10, 2008) – Even as Deer Valley Resort embraces the summer season with its lift-accessed mountain biking and hiking; scenic chairlift rides; lunch at Royal Street Café; Summer Adventure Camp; and a slew of outdoor summer concerts, it keeps its eye on the upcoming ski season. On June 13, opening day of the Resort’s summer season, Locals’ special offers go on sale for Utah residents who want a first-class Deer Valley ski experience at a discounted price.


Deer Valley will continue to provide a number of highly popular ticket offers for local skiers including Locals Coupon Books (which guests can share with a partner); Buddy Passes (discounted lift vouchers for friends with the purchase of Coupon Books or Season Passes); and Season Pass sales. And remember, anyone who purchases a full 2008/2009 Season Pass now for skiing can use it immediately for free lift-accessed mountain biking and hiking at Deer Valley all summer.



“With a record-breaking snow season behind us, summer gives us a chance to catch our breath and focus on our priorities for next ski season: the locals,” says John Guay, Resort director of skier services. “Offering these discounted lift passes to Utah residents so early is our way of saying ‘Thank you’ to locals for their support. Our wide array of products, from coupon books to mid-week passes and more, give our local skiers first choice on customized options to design the

winter ski experience of their dreams.”

BENEFITS

Buddy Pass: Those who purchase Locals Coupon Books can bring a buddy to ski Deer Valley any day the Locals Book is valid, and the buddy will pay the same daily rate the Coupon Book holder paid.



Deer Valley Season Pass holders will be given two buddy coupons for each Season Pass purchase. Bring a Season Pass and a buddy coupon to any ticket office location to purchase a discounted lift ticket. Discounted rates for the Season Pass buddy’s full-day lift ticket are as follows: $52 for an Adult or Senior pass; $45 for a Teen Season Pass; $27 for a Child’s Season Pass and $45 for a Midweek Season Pass. Date restrictions apply.


After taking advantage of the buddy promotion, that buddy can purchase Locals Coupon Books any time during the season. They simply need to bring their buddy lift ticket with a qualifying Utah ID to the Snow Park Ticket Desk to make their purchase. The same Locals program restrictions apply toward all book purchases.


Locals Coupon Book and Season Pass holders also receive exclusive right to purchase a discount lunch card called the Snow Park Lunch Card. The Lunch Card is similar to a phone card, in that guests use it to purchase food until the value of the card is used. The card may be purchased in $100 increments at a 20-percent discount, so a $100 card sells for only $80. Use the card during the season at the Snow Park Restaurant between the hours of 11 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. The Lunch Card is not valid in any of Deer Valley’s evening restaurants, Silver Lake Lodge or Empire Canyon Lodge. Coupon Book or Season Pass holders may purchase the card online at deerlocals.com. Card holders may pick their card up at the Ticket Desk when they pick up their Locals Book or Season Pass, or at the Information Desk in Snow Park Lodge lobby during the ski season, between 8:30 a.m. and 5 p.m. daily.
