Resort receives highest distinction for 8th consecutive year.

Deer Valley Resort; Park City, UT (November 20, 2020) — Deer Valley Resort upholds the distinguished title of Best United States’ Ski Resort 2020 by this year’s World Ski Awards for the eighth year in a row. Award winners were virtually unveiled on on Friday, November 20, the organization’s inaugural WSA Winners Day.

Despite the incredible challenges faced by the tourism industry over the course of 2020, this year’s World Ski Awards program saw a record number of votes from ski tourism consumers, while the organization’s website continues to receive more search traffic than in any previous year. Out of 18 U.S. nominees, Deer Valley® was voted the winner of the industry’s coveted award.

“We are incredibly proud to receive this exceptional recognition from World Ski Awards,” said Jeremy Levitt, Deer Valley Resort President. “We are grateful for all those who cast their vote for Deer Valley, and we look forward to serving them on the slopes this winter season.”

The virtual WSA Winners Day replaces the annual World Travel Awards Gala Ceremony held in Kitzbühel this year to provide a safe, yet vital, platform to celebrate this year’s winners.

World Ski Awards is the sister organization of World Travel Awards™, currently celebrating its 27th anniversary.
