The 2013 -2014 winter season has been a fun one so far with many Red Ledges members taking advantage of numerous opportunities and outlets to enjoy our famous Utah snow! A quick glance at the Red Ledges calendar will show an array of activities to inspire even those who prefer the warmer summer months, the encouragement they need to get out and enjoy winter. From cross country skiing and snowshoeing to skiing at Deer Valley, there’s surely an event to encourage you to bundle up to enjoy the beautiful winter that Utah provides. Below find just a few of the fun upcoming events to see what might spark your interest to join before winter is gone!
Skiing at Deer Valley
Each week, ‘Rippin’ Wednesdays’ and ‘Cruiser Thursdays’ have been a fun way to see the mountain, learn new trails, pick up tips and pointers and meet up with Red Ledges friends for twice-weekly ski days! Each week members have been enjoying hitting the slopes and taking turns deciding which trails might hold the nicest snow before heading into Stag Lodge or Deer Crest Club for a hot cocoa break, lunch or just a breather!
There are two different areas within the Stag Lodge – located off of Success ski run -that are available for Red Ledges members and their guests to enjoy. The first is the Bar and Lounge, providing a casual, comfortable seating area from mid-morning until late afternoon, offering an après and bar menu. This area does not require a reservation. The second area, Café 52, is a unique, private dining experience, serving lunch from 11:30 a.m. – 2:20 p.m. and requires advance reservations. For reservations at Café 52, please call (435) 649-7444, ask for restaurant reservations and identify yourself as a Red Ledges Member to be assisted with your reservation.
Over the past several seasons, private club access to Deer Valley through the Deer Crest Club at St. Regis, has become a very popular amenity for Red Ledges members. DCC requires advanced reservations through the Club and provides an attentive staff in a beautiful and comfortable atmosphere; affording members a great place to meet pre or post ski.
Snowshoeing & Cross Country Skiing
The beautiful Heber Valley is surrounded by infinite peaks and hidden canyons ready to explore on snowshoe along with numerous outlets for cross country skiing. February and March offer both cross country skiing and snowshoeing excursions for all levels including bi-monthly events on Friday mornings. Beginners, experts, kids and in most cases, four-legged friends are welcome to join! Check out the online calendar for specific dates and times.
Horseback Riding and Trail Rides
Winter can also be a great time to get out on the trails with the freedom of a horse beneath you. Join KB Horses at Red Ledges to explore the beautiful, rolling hills and red rock surrounding Red Ledges. KB Horses offers rides for beginners to experts as well as horse drawn sleigh rides and romantic rides in a vintage vis-à-vis carriage. On Saturday, February 8th, enjoy a complimentary horse drawn sleigh ride at Red Ledges, then warm up with hot chocolate and lunch at Juniper Grill!
If being outside in the winter just isn’t your thing, then get out your racquet or clubs to hit some balls with either Cliff Drysdale Tennis at Red Ledges or the Jim McLean Golf School on Main Street in Park City. The new tennis bubble at Red Ledges offers members open courts, junior programs, tennis workouts, clinics and lessons in heated comfort. Or head to Park City to the Jim McLean Golf School and enjoy private lessons or play a round on the golf simulator which permits players to use their own clubs and hit actual balls while playing many of the best courses around the world!
Winter can be a long season here in Utah. But that doesn’t mean you have to hole up and hide. Sign up for some of Red Ledges’ fun winter activities and see how getting out and exploring our beautiful mountains can make winter fly by!

Bring in the New Year at two exciting venues highlighting cross country skiing, moguls and aerial competitions in Midway and Park City, Utah in January, 2014. These events feature world-class athletes in their bids to gain spots on the Olympic Team during the 2014 Winter Olympics!
The 2014 U.S. Cross Country Championships and the U.S. Paralympics Nordic Skiing Nationals will take place January 2nd – 10th at Soldier Hollow in Midway, Utah.

After cheering on the cross country events in Midway, head to Park City to enjoy the FIS World Cup action at Deer Valley, January 8th – 11th, 2014. Deer Valley has been an integral part of the World Cup circuit, hosting the elite competition of moguls and aerials, including the 2002 Olympic Games, two World Championships and 12 World Cup events, over the past 15 years.
Kick off the 4-day celebration with a free concert featuring Big Head Todd and the Monsters on lower Main Street in historic Park City on Wednesday, January 8th from 7:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m.; immediately followed by a spectacular fireworks show!

Each discipline will also be filmed and televised on NBC and NBC Sports Network airing Saturday, January 25th, 2014.
After watching all of the action on the snow you’ll be inspired to strap on some skis yourself! We’ll keep it on the ground for this Red Ledges Intro to Cross Country Skiing on Saturday, January 11th at 11:00 a.m. Whether you’d like a refresher or you’ve never strapped on cross country skis before – this intro to cross country skiing is for you! We’ll spend time discussing equipment, technique and terrain before putting on skis to practice basic skills. Then you’re ready to put everything together and get the blood flowing with a cruise around the track! All levels are welcome and will be accommodated. Weather and snow will determine location. Instruction is complimentary and skis will be provided at rack rates. Please rsvp to Stephanie at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Even if you’re not a skier you’ll have a great time supporting our U.S. athletes in their bid for the 2014 Olympic Games. So dress warmly, wear your red, white and blue, bring the cowbells, a thermos of something hot and your loudest cheering voice for these exciting competitions!

Old Man Winter has officially arrived, bringing his wintery white goodness: snow! Whether your passion is skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing or just plain watching the big flakes float from the sky while you laze by the fire; Utah and snow simply go together. The state has even trademarked its own phrase – ‘The Greatest Snow on Earth’! But what makes Utahans think that they have the greatest snow on earth? It’s more than just a myth. There’s actually an explanation behind all of that dry, fluffy powder so coveted by Utah snow enthusiasts.
First, the state’s high altitude and latitude provide it with cold winters and Utah’s ‘cold desert climate’ keeps it from receiving much precipitation. In fact, Utah ranks as the 2nd driest state in the United States – even with its 540 inches of annual snowfall! Utah is separated into three regions or land areas: the Rocky Mountains, the Basin and Ridge Region and the Colorado Plateau. The main reason the state is so dry is that the Basin and Ridge Region – one of the driest regions in the U.S. – extends across most of western Utah, skewing the state’s precipitation rate and explaining why Utah is so dry when compared to other states. However, the Rocky Mountains – where most of Utah’s ski resorts are located – receive all of the precipitation, (snow). Due to the cold desert climate, Utah’s snow is delivered powder style – read: dry and fluffy…a skiers’ dream.
Lastly, Utah experiences a unique lake effect from the Great Salt Lake. Cold air brought in from passing storms releases heavy snow in the mountains due to the warm air emitted from the lake, even after snow has stopped falling in the valleys. Much to every skier’s delight, Utah experiences these ‘perfect storms’ throughout the winter.
This season get out and enjoy some of Utah’s epic powder by joining Stephanie Potempa and your Red Ledges friends at Deer Valley on Wednesdays and Thursdays, starting December 18th. Two different types of ski days will be offered – one for the hard core and one for the fair weather skier. See you on the mountain!
Rippin’ Wednesday’s – 9am – 12pm (*No Rippin’ Wednesday on December 25th)
Meet at the Deer Crest Club at 9 a.m. and be ready to hit the snow first thing. Join Stephanie Potempa and your Red Ledges friends to rip first tracks at Deer Valley. Rippin’ Wednesday’s are for those who love to push their limits, explore the mountain and tackle all kinds of terrain. We’ll ski blues, double blues, blacks and maybe tuck into some trees. If it’s a powder day, bring your fat skis and expect to make some fresh turns! This is a day to push your limits and get off the beaten path.
Cruiser Thursday’s – 12pm – 3pm
Meet Stephanie Potempa at the Deer Crest Club at 12pm for a fun, casual ski day at Deer Valley. Cruiser Thursday’s are for those who enjoy sleeping-in, skiing when the snow softens up a bit, and hot cocoa breaks. We’ll cruise the mountain hitting all the Deer Valley favorites – including après should inspiration call! Plan to enjoy getting to know new trails and new friends and taking it easy – and maybe pushing a bit harder when the mood strikes! Yoga will be offered at the St. Regis at 4:30 p.m. ($10 for Red Ledges members), to ease those tired muscles.)
***Guests must provide their own Deer Valley ski pass & 24-hour advance reservations are required to secure your Deer Crest pass for this day of skiing. Contact Stephanie at email@example.com***
