The Chief Operating Officer for Deer Valley, Todd Shallan, visited County Council on Wednesday. He was asked if the resort can be more green in a couple of areas.

During the conversation, County Council member Glenn Wright asked Shallan how Deer Valley can cut down on traffic congestion. Wright noted that when the parking areas spill out every day, from Deer Valley and Park City Mountain Resort—the result is gridlock and even the buses of Park City area transit are caught up in it.

The Summit County Council on Wednesday heard from the Chief Operating Officer of Deer Valley that the resort has had a phenomenal year.

And in particular, Todd Shallan talked about the impacts they’re seeing from the sales of their Ikon Pass.

The council talked to Shallan as part of their regular effort to touch base with the operations of both Deer Valley, and its rival, the Park City Mountain Resort and Canyons Village, held by Vail.

Deer Valley Resort is asking a Third District Court judge to drop it as a co-defendant from a skier-collision lawsuit being filed against actress Gwyneth Paltrow.

Attorneys for Deer Valley, and its employee, ski instructor Eric Christiansen, are denying allegations that the resort did not assist the plaintiff in the lawsuit, Salt Lake resident Terry Sanderson and that they filed a false report about the collision.

The filing also argues that even if the charges were true, Sanderson can’t file a claim against the Resort for emotional suffering.
