And now Deer Valley Signature Foods are available at the resort, by mail, or by calling (800) 424-DEER (3337).

These food items include such favorites as an all-natural `McHenergy Bar' for skiers and mountain bikers, Deer Valley Granola, Parmesan Baked Pita Chips and a variety of unusual seasonings, dressings and marinades.
