Utah Boasts Most Expensive Ski Resort in the United States

PARK CITY, Utah, Jan. 20, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Utah's Deer Valley, located in Park City, is the most expensive ski resort in North America. That's according to a new survey from CheapHotels.org. The survey specifically compared all important ski resorts in the USA and Canada based on the cost of their lodging. The month of February served as the basis of comparison.

To stay in the Deer Valley Resort, ski bunnies will have to spend $395 per night during February. Even at that price they'll be able to stay in only the most affordable double room. Second most expensive, also in Utah, is the Snowbird Resort, with an average per-night rate of $312. Following in third place is Colorado's Beaver Creek, where overnight visitors will have to spend at least $289 nightly for a double room.

What about the other two resorts in Park City? Canyons, Utah's largest resort, ranks sixth most expensive ($214 per night) on the survey, while Deer Valley's neighbor, the Park City Mountain Resort proves itself much more affordable. In fact, at an average of only $111 per night for the most affordable double room, Park City Mountain is not even among North America's Top 20 most expensive resorts.

The following table lists North America's 10 most expensive ski resorts. The rates indicated reflect the average price for the most affordable double room at each respective resort during this upcoming February.

  1. Deer Valley (UT) $395
