The Saints and Sinners Ball

Less thana ten-minute drive from Park City Peaks sits Deer Valley – one of the premiere ski resorts in Park City, UT and home to the swanky Saints and Sinners Ball.  On March 14 the St. Regis at Deer Valley will unite, well, saints and sinners in an evening that includes dinner, an auction, a live band, and plenty of dancing.  The $200 ticket price benefits the Student Outreach Programs of the Park City Institute.
