Deer Valley Resort’s plans to develop the Snow Park base area will be presented to the Park City Planning Commission for the first time on Wednesday.


Deer Valley Resort has had its original Master Planned Development approved with Park City Municipal since 1977. The development of the Snow Park base area is the last major project yet to be completed as part of the original development plans. That project will be brought before the Park City Planning Commission at their Wednesday meeting.


KPCW has reported that Deer Valley has been in the planning and application stages of the project since late 2020 and the resort officially announced their intent to develop the roughly 15 acres of land in April.


Deer Valley’s parent organization, Alterra Mountain Company, has said the Snow Park project will be part of a larger $207 million investment across several of their properties. 


According to the conditional use permit submitted to the city, the project will transition the current surface-level parking to underground paid parking. Other aspects of the proposal include dedicated pickup and dropoff zones, a transit hub, and expanded lodging, retail, and dining options.


According to the resort’s announcement, if approved by the city, the project would transform Snow Park into a “modern and convenient world-class base area.”


With the addition of the Deer Valley proposal, the planning commission will have to decide on redevelopment plans for both of Park City’s ski resorts. Park City Mountain Resort’s ambitious plans for their base area have been in front of the planning commission for over a year.


The resort hopes to break ground on the Snow Park project next spring.


Wednesday’s planning commission meeting is scheduled to begin at 5:30pm. Details on how to participate can be found here.
