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.
