King's Estate - Deer Crest

Sky Villa - The Colony

Deer Crest at Deer Valley Resort
Perched above Lake Jordanelle on Deer Valley Resort’s sunniest mountain, this private, gated community offers spectacular views, plus ski-in-ski-out access from every chalet. Hop on your private ski run, and after a day on the slopes, mix drinks at your home’s private bar. Most homes include amenities like heated patios, fire pits, oversized hot tubs, gourmet kitchens and fitness suites and game rooms. Deer Valley has earned its reputation for top-notch service, perfectly groomed slopes, inspired cuisine, and unparalleled ski-in-ski-out access.

The Colony at Park City Mountain
The Colony is a private gated community with expansive chalets on secluded, wooded lots with out-the-door access to more than 7,000 skiable acres. With amenities like stadium-seat theaters, private bars, and even heated pools, our homes blur the line between home and private lodge. You’ll also find shopping, dining, and family-friendly entertainment at the base of Canyon’s Village.
