The Latest on Mayflower
If all goes according to plan, Deer Valley Resort will soon be expanding in Wasatch County. Known as “Mayflower”, and located at the Mayflower exit off of Highway 40, the resort is slated to develop a thousand to twelve hundred acres, according to an interview with General Manager Bob Wheaton on the Local News Hour with Leslie Thatcher. A new base area is slated on the ski resort side of Hwy 40, in addition to six new ski lifts.
As much as 3.8 million square feet of residential hotels, condo-hotels and condos are expected to be built. As the expansion progresses and information about real estate options on the property become available, I’ll be sure to keep you updated.
And the Military Installation Development Authority (MIDA) Hotel
What is MIDA and what does it have to do with Deer Valley and Mayflower? Well, according to our sources, MIDA was created by Governor John Huntsman to allow the military to operate property much like a municipality. They have a project underway in the Mayflower area for a private/public military hotel and recreation facility. It will take up six of the acres in that area and provide opportunities for skiing, hiking, biking, etc. The 4-star hotel will be open to the public but discounted rooms will be reserved for personnel from all four branches of the military.
