Deer Valley Resort

Project Details: 

Deer Valley Resort is a ski resort located in Utah, in an area with a high concentration of action sports competitors. They engaged Select Contracts to produce a Four-Season Development Plan that would allow them to diversify their offerings, increase their year-round visitation, and continue to differentiate themselves from their competitors.


The Brief:

Select Contracts was engaged by Deer Valley Resort to provide our expertise in the ongoing planning and development of their resort. The initial brief was to deliver a Four Season Strategic Plan to include a market study, component matrix, masterplan, and financial model.


How Did We Help: 

Select Contracts conducted a Visioning Session with members of the Resort’s team to align the project’s objectives and set a clear direction. Our work encompassed a comprehensive assessment of the resort’s current situation, scrutinizing its strengths, weaknesses, and potential areas for growth. 


Our Approach:

Our approach began with a Visioning Session, bringing together key team members from the resort to define the vision for four-season development. This session set the project’s direction and goals. Next, we conducted an in-depth assessment of the resort’s current situation, evaluating its strengths, weaknesses, and potential growth areas. Building on this foundation, we conducted a Full Market Study to identify market size and opportunities. We then created a Component Matrix to provide a clear plan for component inclusions, followed by block master planning to ensure these components were well integrated into the resort layout. Finally, we engaged in Financial Planning to align the project’s goals with its budgetary considerations.


The Result:

The culmination of our efforts yielded a comprehensive and well-rounded development plan for Deer Valley Resort. Our work equipped Deer Valley Resort with a strategic roadmap to enhance its offerings, attracting both visitors and residents to their destination.
