Guests arriving at the St. Regis Deer Crest Resort in Deer Valley make their way to a welcome center just inside Park City, Utah. While valets and bellhops lighten worldly burdens by taking charge of vehicles and luggage, the fortunate pilgrims enter a leather-upholstered, climate-controlled private funicular and smoothly ascend to the mountaintop, where they attain perfect peace of mind and body in the serene surroundings of the newly opened property.
Situated in the private Deer Crest community, the St. Regis offers ski-in and ski-out access to the runs of Deer Valley Resort. The top four floors of the 11-story structure house 26 private residences, and the 67 wholly owned condominium suites on the lower floors can be paired with the 114 adjoining guest rooms to accommodate large groups, making the destination ideal for family ski vacations.
On returning from the slopes, skiers can relax in chaises on Ski Beach, take a dip in the warm infinity pool and slope-side hot tubs, or indulge in a treatment at the Remède Spa before gathering to savor the enlightening cuisine at Jean-Georges Vongerichten’s J&G Grill.
