Deer Valley Opens Lady Morgan Express Chair, Tree Skiing Galore

To be honest, Deer Valley is one of my favorite places to ski in Utah. What?!?! Me, a pow-seeking, backcountry-loving skier like skiing at Deer Valley? Yessir… the place is near the top of my list if given the choice on any day of the week. Here’s why: the grooming is impeccable, the service is as good as it gets, but most importantly, nobody does tree skiing quite like Deer Valley.

And, tree skiing is exactly the reason why the all-new Lady Morgan Express chairlift was put in. Its 1150 vertical feet gives skiers access to 200 more skiable acres. Not just an impeccably-groomed 200 acres, we’re talking about 200 acres of perfectly-pitched and perfectly-spaced aspen and pine glades.

Just as the Daly Chutes were an awesome addition when the Empire Lift was put in, the amazing glades are just as stellar of an addition to Deer Valley’s repertoire. I know I’ll be back for a full sampling on a storm day.

As it was, we were there to document the opening of the Lady Morgan Express chairlift on a super-cold bluebird day with plenty of freshies to be had by all. Check out some of the highlights in the following video.

And, check out the following images that show just how awesome the terrain can be. For more information, visit www.DeerValley.com.
