After hour activities in Deer Valley are generally reserved for dining, as
there are virtually no night life options save for a quiet drink at a hotel
bar, and the après scene is namely a sit-down affair. Party goers generally hop
on the free public bus and partake in the Park City night life scene.
You won’t find a true bar scene at Deer Valley, the resort’s demographics prefer else wise. But you will find that Troll Hallen Lounge at the Stein Eriksen Lodge is an exceptional place for post-skiing, pre- and post-dinner drinks and appetizers. Stein Eriksen Lodge boasts 10,000 bottles in their cellar, so it’s also a good place to pick a sommelier’s brain.
If you’re looking for rowdy conversations, party-fueled music and brimming hot tubs, then Deer Valley isn’t the place for you. The après-ski scene is quite mellow, and keep in mind that cocktails and beer in Utah are weak in comparison due to the state’s liquor laws. If a more relaxed setting suits your après fancy, head to the Royal Street Café at Silver Lake Lodge which serves drinks and appetizers until 5:30 p.m., and the Snow Park Lodge in the base area serves until 6 p.m. The Snow Park does have a patio, which is quite lovely on a warm spring day.
