PARK CITY, Utah — Park City, Utah’s Deer Valley Resort has purchased Solitude Mountain Resort in Solitude, Utah.
“Solitude is an incredible resort and provided a huge opportunity for us to expand our offerings in Utah,” said Bob Wheaton, president and GM of Deer Valley Resort. “Solitude is in an unique position with their widely varied terrain that attracts both local and destination skiers. We are ecstatic to add the resort to the Deer Valley family.”
For the coming ski season, Solitude will operate as usual under the leadership of its current owners, the DeSeelhorst family. To foster the most effective and strategic changeover, select Deer Valley staff will work alongside Solitude staff during the next six months to evaluate resort operations and gain knowledge about the Solitude brand and culture. Deer Valley will take full ownership of Solitude Mountain Resort on May 1, 2015.
Although Deer Valley is not actively pursuing purchasing another resort, management has always been open to analyzing opportunities that may be a good fit for Deer Valley.
