Shooting Star was newly opened in 2006. 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 (DSL cable) 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.
Originally from Alabama, Jim and Deborah Davidson currently live in Maimi, FL. We moved to Miami 20 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 Managing Director of Banyan Mezzanine Funds. We co-own with our friend Greg Robertson, also former Goldman Sachs executive who is now Chairman of TM Capital, New York.
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.
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.
