Deer Valley: Expanded Excellence New Luxury Ski Village


Expanded Excellence: Major Terrain Expansion + New Village and Portal from Alterra Mountain Company.

The recent announcement for Deer Valley East Village under the "Expanded Excellence" mantra (the area formerly known as Mayflower Mountain Resort) will add more world-class operations at Deer Valley Resort. With this official agreement, this new luxury ski base area will be North America’s newest world-class alpine village to be developed since 1981. The Extell Development Company project is located within a MIDA Project Area in northern Wasatch County, Utah, next to the existing Deer Valley Resort acreage.

The Village will include ski infrastructure with new ski lifts allowing skiers and mountain bikers access to extensive terrain, both summer and winter, while overlooking the stunning Jordanelle Reservoir.

This reimagined resort village concept will feature three new luxury and lifestyle-branded hotels, and more than 1,000 private residences ranging from estate lots to luxury condominiums. The development will also include a walkable commercial zone comparable to Park City’s Historic Main Street. Lifts, runs, snowmaking infrastructure, and initial lodging buildings are currently being constructed with the first lifts expected to be operational by the 2024-25 ski season. (All photos shown are renderings only.)

Interesting project details:

  • Two decade project to complete build out
  • 6,000 total resort acres and ~4,100 skiable acres
  • Steepest run will be 3,200 vertical feet and 5 miles long (the longest ski run in Utah)
  • 1,200 day-skier parking spots
  • 17 lifts including a two-stage gondola
  • 130 ski runs and trails
  • Largest ski beach in North America
  • Day lodge with ski rentals and restaurants
  • Up to nine hotel properties — one of which will have a portion of its rooms reserved for members of the military and their families
  • Four on-mountain restaurants, ski school, children’s center, and a large ice skating ribbon
  • ~11 miles of hiking and biking summer trails
  • 1,800 residential units as well as plans for 600 units of workforce housing
  • 300M gallons of non-culinary water will be needed annually, which is about 1/3 of 1% (294,685M water acres) of water coming from Jordanelle Reservoir in a season (water rights secured from the now non-operational Ontario Mine)
  • State-of-the-art snowmaking engineering by Snowmatic and a water reservoir at the top of the mountain to supply gravity-fed snowmaking and wildfire mitigation as well as ease water use from Jordanelle Reservoir (JSSD)
  • An estimated 80% of water for snowmaking will return into Jordanelle Reservoir






History of MIDA in Utah

In 2012, MIDA partnered with Wasatch County, the Air Force, and EX Utah Development LLC (EX Utah) to create a new Morale, Welfare, and Recreation (MWR) hotel in the Military Recreation Facility (MRF) project area located to the west of Exit 8 Mayflower on US Hwy-40.  Construction is under way on the MWR hotel at Mayflower and is expected to open in December 2024. The 387-room conference hotel includes a block of 100 rooms that will be available on a preferred rate basis for our nation’s service men and women, whether on active duty or retired. A military concierge will also be on site.

The history behind the MWR hotel coming to life is a storied one. A small MWR ski lodge near Snowbasin Resort in Huntsville, Utah, closed in the late 1990s in preparation for the 2002 Winter Olympics. In 2001, Congress passed legislation granting a federally-owned, 26-acre parcel in Park City, Utah (the Red Maple parcel) to the Air Force on which to either construct a new MWR facility or trade for other property of equal value. Written into the legislation was a requirement to partner with a private or governmental entity for construction, as no monies were appropriated for the project.

Simultaneously, Wasatch County was engaged in strategic master planning to develop 4,700 acres surrounding the Jordanelle Reservoir. The Air Force approached MIDA for assistance in finding a suitable location for the new MWR facility, and, in 2017, Wasatch County reached out to MIDA with a proposed parcel that ultimately EX Utah agreed to donate. With MIDA facilitating the land trade, the opportunity arose to partner with Wasatch County and Extell, the ideal three-way partnership to pursue the county’s vison for development.

Wasatch County invited MIDA in to execute on its 40-year-old master plan for the Jordanelle Recreation Area in conjunction with MIDA’s project to develop an Air Force Morale, Welfare, and Recreation facility (MWR hotel.)

Most recently, MIDA and Wasatch County entered into a revised and restated cooperation agreement for community housing units with a priority for military veterans, new recreational facilities, and environmental cleanup.

The formation of MIDA project areas can involve military-owned land or privately-owned property. The inclusion of privately-owned property in a MIDA project area requires consent from the MIDA Board of Directors, local jurisdictions within its borders, and private landowners whose property falls within the project area.

MIDA facilitates positive, new economic impact to surrounding communities in the form of capital infrastructure investment in its project areas, financed through legislative appropriations awarded to MIDA and proceeds from issuing bonds. MIDA leverages future tax revenue to invest directly in approved infrastructure projects that bring positive economic impact to the project area.
