deer valley ski vacay

leave it to my parents to plan the perfect ski vacay 
for us right after christmas. we stayed in the nicest
house right on the resort, so we could ski in and out
all day! there's nothing better than being with family,
especially since we live away and so time with everyone
is precious. we lucked out with perfect, bluebird sunny
ski days, a hot tub on the deck at night, amazing meals,
the cozy fire, fun games, and time together. this trip
was especially memorable and special because of some
changes coming up, but more on that later.
thanks parents for such a great time!
we spotted some banksy art
and chase took a little nap cuddled
up to the park city bear..ha
after having some fun in park city {my hometown}
on the way up the first day, we headed
up to our deer valley house for our stay.
pretty house right on the resort.
the original dunn fam! ^^
siblings + spouses
lunch at the lodge is always the best..
love my cute grandma who joined us!
deer valley's famous turkey chili is what we most
look forward can tell how much my dad loves it.
after skiing, my dad made his famous
homemade pizzas on the barbecue.
mouth-watering!! better than a restaurant.
we also put the hot tub to good use,
but my mom failed to take a good picture--haha
this one made us laugh so i had to share.
lots of games happened of course,
reverse charades was the highlight.
i died at all of these pictures!
thanks for planning the perfect getaway!


  1. I spent last New Year's Eve in a house just like this up in Deer Valley and it really is the most beautiful place! This looked like the most fun :)

    1. i love that! deer valley is so gorgeous, and close enough that it's easy to get to from SLC. hope your break has been fab!! xo

  2. You take the best vacations! I LOVE Park City and had no idea that was your hometown!

  3. We are toying with a Utah ski trip later this month. Thinking of hitting up snowbird, have you been there?

    1. you MUST! i wish we could be here at the same time as you. my parents live 10 minutes from snowbird and alta, i've skied there my entire life! love both of those resorts and you'd have a great time. email me with any questions as you plan! XO

  4. The resort looks gorgeous! Great post :)

  5. That looked like the perfect vacation!!! I wish I was more of a skier, but i'm just terrible at it, but with a resort like that…maybe I could just hang in the lodge all day and pretend to be a skier haha!! Thanks so much for sharing!

    1. hahah good thinking-- the lodge is the best part anyway! you're the cutest. xo

  6. Absolutely gorgeous pictures! Looks like a fabulous vaca!
