Wow! Had lunch at the new St. Regis at Deer Valley® Resort yesterday. Reinforced my feeling that Park City just gets better and better over time. This year alone both the St. Regis (Deer Valley® Resort) and the Dakota Mtn Lodge (The Canyons) opened. Dakota Mtn Lodge is part of the Waldorf-Astoria Collection and has a Golden Door Spa. These hotels offer 5 star lodging for the Aspen/Vail crowd but what makes me extremely happy is that as a local, I can eat, drink and enjoy their fine amenities. This past year (2009), Park City had more transactions and higher dollar volume than Vail for the first time. With the ever-improving accomodations and amenities, Park City is the next “it” destination.
Can’t wait for the Montage to open next year.
