PARK CITY SWEEPS THE WORLD SKI AWARDS
The World Ski Awards™ is the only global initiative to recognize, reward and celebrate excellence in ski tourism. World Ski Awards was developed in reaction to overwhelming demand from the ski industry for a program that was fair and transparent; a program with a mission to serve as the definitive benchmark of excellence, and to help to foster a new era of growth in ski tourism. The World Ski Awards program has categories for the Best Ski Resort (Deer Valley), Best Ski Hotel (Waldorf Astoria), Best Ski Boutique Hotel (Washington School House) and Best Ski Chalet (Dream Home) for each of the world’s top 25 ski tourism nations. The individual country level winner with the most overall votes will not only win the national award but also the world level award in the respective category. The World Ski Awards is part of the World Travel Awards, serving as “the Oscars of the travel industry,” and aims to drive up standards within the ski tourism industry. Park City took home #1 in all four categories.
Deer Valley Resort Awarded # 1 USA Best Ski Resort
Votes have been counted and Deer Valley Resort has once again been named the United States’ Best Ski Resort. This marks five consecutive years Deer Valley Resort has been honored with the esteemed accolade and comes on the heels of also being named the #1 ski resort in North America by the readers of SKI Magazine. The World Ski Award winners represent excellence in ski tourism and the leaders shaping the future of the ski industry.
“It’s thrilling to start the 2017-2018 ski season to be awarded with two highly respected accolades,” said Bob Wheaton, president and chief operating officer of Deer Valley Resort. “It’s especially validating when those awards come directly from the opinions of our valued guests and industry peers. We strive for remarkable at every turn at the resort and we will continue to set the benchmark for what constitutes a remarkable ski vacation.” The Best Ski Resort category is open to towns, villages or areas with an established ski infrastructure - and an impeccable ski record.
Waldorf Astoria Awarded Best USA Ski Hotel
Waldorf Astoria Park City was recently voted the USA's Best Ski Hotel by World Ski Awards™. They were also nominated for top three in the category World’s Best Ski Hotel 2017. It is no surprise of their world-wide recognition as they continue to bring guests a top, luxury ski experience in Park City. Congratulations to the Waldorf Astoria and we wish you another amazing winter season.
