Deer Valley Resort has a lot of exciting developments headed our way, which we learned during a recent interview with Steve Graff, the Director of Mountain Operations.
Q: What is Deer Valley Resort working on right now?
A: This summer, we’re beginning construction on multiple new projects, including Tsunami, a black diamond rated trail. We’re aiming to have this completed by late summer, and it will open in stages as each stage is completed.
Q: What are the hiking trails at Deer Valley?
A: Ontario, Silver Lake, Red Cloud, and Sultan Out and Back. They all have different features and difficulty levels. The most popular hiking trail is Silver Lake and Red Cloud trail is great for guests who are looking for a more secluded hiking experience.
Q: Any other news you’d like to share about Deer Valley’s summer?
A: We just started our Twilight Ride series, which is for guests that work 9-5 jobs and need extra time to hit the trails. We will stay open late every Wednesday night from 4:00-8:00 p.m. This also runs in conjunction with the free concert series at Snow Park, so get a group together, come up for a ride, and then regroup for some great tunes on the mountainside.
Q: What will Deer Valley be working on for next year?
A: For 2018, we’re going to create a continuation of our flow trails, which will consist of new mountain bike trail expansions as well as a new trail on Bald Eagle Mountain.
There’s plenty of excitement going on at Deer Valley Resort this summer, so come up and begin to create your own Deer Valley moments!
Now working as one of our amazing servers at Cena Ristorante, Lance Rentrios has quickly become a friendly and familiar face for our dining guests. Boasting over 15 years of experience in the hospitality field, Lance moved to Park City and started working at the on-site ski shop, Ski-N-See, at The Chateaux Deer Valley before transitioning over to Cena Ristorante, where he has made a great impact on both the staff and guests.
When asked about his favorite aspects of working at The Chateaux, Lance mentioned how as a father he appreciates the kid-friendly atmosphere the hotel provides. He also enjoys working with his co-workers and states that he has been inspired by the variety of people who have come to work at Cena this past year.
Lance is a firm believer in going above and beyond for the guest whenever he can. One way he achieves this is by recording special dining preferences a guest may have and uses that information to anticipate their needs in the future, resulting in an exceptional dining experience for the guest. In his free time, Lance enjoys reading anything he can get his hands on, cooking French gourmet food, and spending time with his kids.
It goes without saying that Lance fits in perfectly with the Cena crew and we couldn’t be happier to have him on the team!
