Construction is underway as ski lifts serving the Mayflower Village are scheduled to open the winter of 2023 and the projected opening of the Conference Hotel is in 2024.
The Mayflower Village will be located on the backside of Deer Valley Resort along the gated Deer Crest subdivision facing Jordanelle Reservoir off Highway 40. The new base area will be called Mayflower Mountain Resort and will introduce 900 new acres of mostly north-facing ski terrain along with up to seven proposed new lifts. In regards to real estate at Deer Valleys' new east-entrance the village plan shows a mix of stacked condominium and condominium hotels at the village core. The Resort Village will have five-star hotel and a four-star hotel along with a 40,000 square foot conference center.
The build-out will most likely take 15 to 40 years, however, construction crews are already on-site to begin building out the necessary infrastructure improvements and the first lifts are planned to be installed next summer.
Other features that are planned for the Mayflower Village include but are not limited to Alpine and Nordic Skiing tracks, an Alpine Coaster, Sledding hills, an ice skating rink, ski beach, an off-road bicycle “pump track”, a skate park , a miniature golf course, zip-line tours, an outdoor concert/movie venue as well as shopping and dining options.
Additionally, the Extell company, doing business as EX Utah Development, donated just under five acres of property to MIDA – the Military Industrial Development Authority - for the new military conference hotel. The hotel will include 387 rooms, 55 private residences and 60,000 square feet of conference, food, and beverage facilities. The new facility will replace the MIDA that was removed some 20 years after a small military recreation hotel was torn down to make way for the 2002 Winter Olympics facilities at Snowbasin.
