Mountain Biking Deer Valley
To access most of the nearly 70 miles of Deer Valley mountain bike trails (spread out over six mountains), skills park, and up to 3,000 vertical feet of elevation change, you will need a Summer lift ticket. This gives you access to the mountain and its trails through the Silver Lake Express, Sterling Express, and Homestake Express lifts. It also includes four flow trails designed by Gravity Logic along with several trails that connect with Park City's vast 400 Mile network of trails. You can purchase a lift ticket at the Ticket Office, Snow Park Lodge, Silver Lake Rental Shop, or online.
