Shooting Star is located mid-mountain in the exquisite Deer Valley Ski Resort. Decorated in the western lodge style, you might imagine you are visiting with the Cartwright family on Bonanza when you are our guest. Massive ceiling beams throughout, hardwood floors, and cowboy accents will have you feeling that you are back on the ranch. The large balcony and all rooms have breathtaking panoramic views over the vast Wasatch mountain ranges, and on a clear day you may even get a glimpse of Wyoming.
The Village at Empire Pass, while nestled by the slopes, is tucked away in a quiet, heavily forested mid-mountain area, yet it is only a five-minute drive from the restaurants and shops of Park City and Deer Valley's Silver Lake Village.
Located by the Silver Buck Run (Silver Strike Express Lift) on Flagstaff Mountain, Deer Valley - Park City Utah, this exclusive top floor (third) condominium offers a rustic, yet elegant mountain lodge atmosphere, reminiscent of the grand old lodges at Yellowstone and Yosemite.
Relax in the great room after your day of skiing with friends and family, gathered around the stone fireplace, while you watch a favorite movie from the DVD collection (40-in flat panel TV, surround sound, CD changer/cable music), or hone the family's skills on one of the many board games provided.
The bedrooms provide versatility with king, queen, and twin bed set-ups, while the loft has four bunk beds with lots of room for the kids to romp. A private office, with desktop computer and printer, permits that workaholic in your group to stay tethered to the office back home. The kitchen and baths all feature custom wooden cabinetry, slab granite counter tops, natural stone floors, and in the master bathroom, a jetted tub. SubZero refrigerator/freezer and Wolf range, of course, and washer/dryer. Children more than welcome. No smoking, no pets.
Shooting Star has heated underground parking, full ski equipment room with your own private locker, and secluded spas.
Dial-A-Ride is provided as a complimentary amenity for transportation around the area.
Deer Valley Resort, named the number one ski resort in North America by numerous sources including SKI magazine and which hosted a number of 2002 Winter Olympic events, has four mountains which offer any skier the ultimate opportunity to revel in the annual 300 inches of light, dry, Utah powder. Five-star guest services, top ranked on mountain food, and impeccably groomed vast slopes at Deer Valley set the standard for all other ski resorts worldwide.
Deer Valley Dining offers top rated restaurants within minutes from the Shooting Star #301 condo. The best restaurants in the most beautiful location makes the dining experience most enjoyable.
Kids love the 'cowboy' theme throughout Shooting Star 301 and especially enjoy their private 'bunk' loft hideaway. We hear from families who have stayed with us in the past that their kids insist on returning to the bunkhouse. It is a totally cool space for the kids with plenty of room for them to spread out. The kids also enjoy the ease of the blue run right outside the condo. They get to know the mid-mountain ski area very quickly and are comfortable skiing with or without Mom and Dad. Kids also love sledding down the slope at the end of the day in the back of the condo. ...moreless

Deer Valley, UT offers the #1 top rated skiing in the United States. Ranked by Ski Magazine as top ski experience in the world. Beautifully groomed slopes, outstanding local restaurants, luxury mountain top homes and condos, plus great hiking and mountain biking in the summer months makes this a fabulous place to visit. With Park City just next door, there is no limit to the great ski experience offered in this area. The fabulous shops and art galleries in Park City are worth your visit, whether you like to ski or not. The beauty of the area combined with the dining opportunities makes Deer Valley tops on anyone's list. Even if you're not into gourmet dining, there are many casual restaurants to enjoy. The Olympic Village remains very active as a training base for many of the top Olympic athletes, so make sure you plan to take a tour of the village. Sledding is located nearby as well as snowmobiling. If none of this sounds appealing, just sit by the fire and look at the mountain.
Ski: Deer Valley holds the distinction of being the top rated Ski Resort in the world according to SKI magazine. With the world class skiing, beautifully groomed slopes, outstanding gourmet dining, there is no place to compare to Deer Valley. Shooting Star #301 is located in the Village at Empire Pass, Deer Valley, UT which opens onto the Silver Buck Run on Flagstaff Mountain. Our unit is on the 3rd floor and has views from all rooms looking down over the beautiful valley below. The back side of the condo opens onto the Silver Buck Run and the Silver Strike Lift is just a few feet away. No climbing up the hill...this is a true ski/in-ski out condo. The decor is cowboy rustic, but all surfaces and finishes in the condo are very high-end. A heated parking garage on the lower level, ski locker on the 1st level and access to the slope side hot tub makes this a perfect ski retreat.
Many enjoy coming to Park City for the Sundance Film Festival, but don't realize that staying in Deer Valley fduring the festival makes a lot of sense. Shooting Star 301 is just a 5 minute drive from the heart of Park City and with the 'free' Dial-a-Ride service offered to our guests, transportation is door-to-door and very easy...with no parking issues. So, don't miss the Sundance Film Festival.
In the summer months, on Sundays, the Park City 'silly market' is not to be missed as a family event. Enjoy the local flavor of the town when the streets are blocked for local and other vendors to showcase their crafts and handmade 'mountain' theme goods.
Year Purchased: 2007
About the owner: Originally from Alabama, Jim and Deborah Davidson currently live in Maimi, FL. We moved to Miami 23 years ago from New York where Jim worked with Goldman Sachs. Here in Miami, he is Chairman of the Board of Coral Gables Trust Co. and is also Managing Director of Banyan Mezzanine Investors. We co-own the condo with our close friend Greg Robertson, also a former Goldman Sachs executive who is currently Chairman of TM Capital, New York. We offer Shooting Star 301 for rental because both Jim and Greg are still busy with their work and we have limited opportunities to get out to ski. Over the years, we have enjoyed skiing in so many beautiful mountain resorts, but Deer Valley is definitely our favorite ski resort and we feel most fortunate to own this beautiful condo in this exquisite location. Jim and I also own a private island in the Florida Keys (www.seabirdkey.com) and we offer it for rental as well. We enjoy owning both these properties and it is our goal to maintain the highest standards and offer our clients exceptional accommodations.
Why the Owner Chose Empire Pass, Shooting Star:
Deer Valley is the #1 ranked Ski Resort in the US and we think the location of Shooting Star is the best in Deer Valley, located mid- mountain with a view 50 miles out over virgin forests and the mountain ranges, but yet only five minutes to restaurants and shops. The short 45 minute drive from the SLC airport was a very important consideration for us combined with the convenience of a true ski-in/ski-out condo. Deer Valley has fabulous hotels, but we were looking to have a beautiful place where we could also ski in for lunch. Deer Valley dining is unmatched anywhere and Park City is a 5 minute drive back down the hill. We enjoy the skiing at Deer Valley with the beautifully groomed slopes and no snowboarders, although our son, who does like to board, just goes to Park City next door. There are other ski resorts nearby as well for those who enjoy variety, but we love the Deer Valley experience so much, it's hard to want to go elsewhere. There are great things to do in the area during the summer as well. We love the fabulous hiking, mountain biking, water sports, Olympic Park, and many other diversions.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
We purchased Shooting Star 301 in the pre-construction phase and feel very fortunate to have been involved from the beginning. We loved the location and the view, but were sold on the unit after seeing the site plans and construction details of the developer. We got to enhance the size and look of our unit and add personal touches and finishes that offers distinction over the other condos.
