Ski Valets…29 Years of Service
Stein Eriksen Lodge has offered guests ski valet services for the past 29 years. Our locker room is a mere 200 yards from the Sterling Express Lift at Deer Valley Resort in Park City, UT.
During the winter season it’s common to read guest comments like:
“This is my favorite service at Steins. The ski valets make the trip worth every penny. They are kind, considerate and seem genuinely gracious.”
“The locker room and ski valet staff are fantastic…The assistance with boot and skis, overnight boot drying, and related services went far beyond anything we have experienced elsewhere and made our trip all the more special.”
“ The ski locker staff is incredible, and for us, the ski valet services are what make Steins stand apart as a luxury ski-in/out property.”
After hearing guests rave about the service, I decided I needed to experience it for myself. To make sure I had the full experience I began with breakfast in the Glitretind complete with maple glazed bacon, salmon benedict and fresh fruit. Around 9am I strolled down from the Main Lodge to the locker room in my ski clothing and comfortable sneakers. The ski valets were ready and waiting.
Ryan greeted me and showed me to my locker where he assisted me with my boots. For anyone who has ever struggled trying to pull the tongue of a ski boot up and away from your foot while simultaneously pushing your foot down, this service is for you. In no time my boots were comfortably on my feet and Ryan was taking my skis and poles to the snow while I made final adjustments to my helmet and goggles. I made sure to apply a bit of sunscreen, provided at the valet desk, before heading out on one of the many blue bird days this season.
Ryan brushed the snow from my boots and guided my foot into my binding. Two solid clicks later I was ready to go. I waved and thanked Ryan as I glided towards the Sterling Lift for my ski adventure.
Upon my return, Roger appeared with a big smile asking me how my day was. As I gushed about the grooming and the terrain, he gathered my skis and poles and placed them on the rack. He would later return them to my locker where they would be securely stored for the night.
I agree with our guests, these gentlemen represent the genuinely friendly nature of the Lodge. I am extremely proud to work for a property that provides this kind of service to all guests.
