Enjoy the Wonderous Beauty of Deer Valley From the Sky   by Blake Provo

It is impossible to dispute the beauty of the mountains at the Deer Valley skiing resort and the close area, but it is possible to be even more amazed by looking at them from the air. There are several options that you can have if you are interested in getting a bird's eye view of the wonderful area of Deer Valley. Whether you only want a nice and slow run or an exciting powdery descent by ski; you can have a good experience in the air above Deer Valley.

A beautiful, leisurely option to take in the area is in a hot air balloon. Morning Star Balloons and Park City Balloon Adventures are both local companies that offer balloon tours. You need to wake up early to experience this wonderful way of flying. Hot air balloon flights leave early in the day when there is few winds and you get to take in the amazing sunrise.

Another form of scenic air tour is operated by Park City Helitours. For a reasonable price, you might book a seat on a helicopter tour to see this beautiful part of Utah from the sky. Possible flyover destinations include the 2002 Olympic Venues, Sundance, Bridal Veil Falls, and Mount Timpanogos. Charter flights are given but a lot more expensive than the tour options.

For the adventurous, powder-seeking skier in the group, an exciting possibility is a heli-skiing trip. This is somewhat expensive but is reasonable for a person who is searching for that perfect, untouched snow. Two close companies, Wasatch Powderbird Guides and Park City Powder Cats & Heli-Ski, Inc. offer heli-skiing services. If you decide to round up the cash, you can plan on a day full of skiing along with professional guides. Most full skiing days are filled with six to seven runs and perhaps around 15,000 vertical ft. covered. Heli-skiing guests do not need to be extreme skiers, but they do need to have solid skiing skills and reasonable physical stamina. Call the outfitter you choose for exact requirements and so you can also book a spot.

Examining this amazing place from above would be an experience you will never forget. Whether you like the quietness of sunrise by hot air balloon or the exhilaration of a 2,000 vertical foot descent, it is sure to be amazing. Just think of the memories you can make in the high, mountain sky!
