The Montage Deer Valley is about 40 minutes from Salt Lake City Airport and five minutes from Main Street. Also, it has the largest spa in Utah, five restaurants- one of which is a pub with a bowling alley and onsite shops.

Another key point is The Paintbox, which will be a favorite among your kids and has crafts, movies, mountainside scavenger hunts and more. While guests visit, they can collect 12 Montage Merit Badges to earn an award that signifies that they “conquered” the mountain.
