Stein Eriksen

Eriksen is one of the skiing legends around Park City, and one of the city's earliest, even though he never competed for the United States. He won the gold medal in the giant slalom in the 1952 Winter Olympics, held in his native country of Norway. 

Jay Leno

Acclaimed TV late night show host, admired stand-up comedian, best-selling children’s book author, much-in-demand corporate speaker, lovable TV and movie voice-over artist, pioneering car builder and mechanic, and philanthropist…it’s no wonder that Jay Leno is widely characterized as “the hardest working man in show business.”


Deer Valley Resort

The ski industry forever changed 34 years ago when Edgar Stern developed Deer Valley Resort based on the concept of providing a luxury hotel experience by combining first-class guest service, luxury accommodations and gourmet food with skiing.
