Deer Valley Resort is known for its forward way of thinking, it was one of the first ski resorts to have free parking-lot shuttles, complimentary ski gear valet and a state licensed child-care facility. Today this innovation continues, in 2015 Deer Valley Resort announced plans to build a $10 to $12 million dollar gondola connecting Deer Valley to Main street, facilitating the movement of skiers, employees, and tourists from the resort to the popular visits of downtown Park City. There are also plans in the works to add 1,000 acres of ski terrain and 5-6 new lifts with the possibility of new lodging and dining. Completion of this $50 million project will take about five years.
