Mayflower Village Master Plan Concept Approved by Wasatch County
Wasatch County planning officials recently approved the long-awaited master plan for Mayflower Village. 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 7 proposed new lifts, creating a new east side entrance portal to Deer Valley® Resort. The village plan represents a mix of stacked condominium and condominium hotels in the village core as demonstrated in the renderings below. The build-out is anticipated to occur over a 15 – 40 year period. Infrastructure improvements have begun and it’s likely the first lift(s) will be installed next summer.
Welcome to Mayflower Mountain Resort, certainly the biggest news to ever hit Wasatch County. This Portal, opposite the Jordanelle, will access expanded Deer Valley skiing and will undoubtedly have a huge positive impact on property prices in the Heber Valley. Read on, or call me for more information.

Talk of development in this area has been on the table for many years and became a reality with the 2017 sale of the land to the New York City firm Extell Development Company. Two firms under the corporate umbrella of Netherlands-based Stichting Mayflower sold the land.
A Wasatch County report outlines that a Resort Village planned in Mayflower Mountain Resort will have a five-star hotel and a four-star hotel as well as a conference center of 40,000 square feet. Development within the Resort Village is designed to be within a radius of 1,200 feet from the center, the report says, something that Wasatch County says promotes the pedestrian friendliness.
Unique to the Mayflower Mountain Resort development is the active participation of the Military Installation Development Authority (“MIDA”.) This entity is associated with Hill Air Force Base near Ogden and develops military recreation facilities. The Air Force for years has sought a location for a hotel in the Park City area to replace the former Hill Haus lodge at Snowbasin Resort, which was removed before the 2002 Olympics. They are currently involved in the development of a luxury public/private hotel either within the Mayflower property or on land immediately adjacent to it to provide room discounts to military men and women.
