Hotel Spotlight: Goldener Hirsch, Auberge Resorts Collection

Goldener Hirsch Auberge Resorts Collection Virtuoso

Experience the Magic of Goldener Hirsch, Auberge Resorts Collection

Goldener Hirsch has recently been renovated and expanded since joining Auberge Resorts Collection in November 2021. The hotel is located just steps from Deer Valley’s ski lifts in Silver Lake Village.

Inspired by the original Goldener Hirsch in Salzburg, Austria, the hotel opened in 1992 with 18 traditional, European-style rooms. Its expansion included the addition of two new buildings, connected via glass bridges, with 50 modern rooms, suites, and residences.

With unparalleled accommodations and exceptional service, Goldener Hirsch offers the best luxury experience in Deer Valley

Goldener Hirsch Two Bedroom Residence

Check-In + Rooms

Through our Hotel Plus concierge service and with the assistance of Goldener Hirsch’s team, airport transfers were prearranged to and from SLC, which helped make the 45-minute journey seamless and comfortable. Next, their team added personal touches to my room, such as a gift upon arrival, which made me feel welcome throughout my visit. 

Goldener Hirsch Residence Kitchen

The hotel has just 68 rooms, guaranteeing guests a personalized and intimate stay. The accommodations range from charming inn rooms to multi-bedroom residences featuring full-service kitchens, wood-burning fireplaces, and private balconies.

The 40 designer residences incorporate warm touches of an Austrian ski chalet. Each has modern amenities, including a Calacatta Oro marble kitchen with Wolf and Sub-Zero appliances, a glass dining table, and ensuite bathrooms with soaking tubs. These residences cater to large families and groups looking to spread out and make themselves at home.

The Goldener Hirsch Restaurant

Restaurants + Amenities

Dining at The Goldener Hirsch Restaurant is a must-do when staying in Deer Valley. Before hitting the slopes, I enjoyed the egg and prosciutto toast for breakfast. For dinner, I opted for the classic cheese fondue which warmed my soul after an adventurous ski day. Other Bavarian-style dishes on the dinner menu include red hen coq au vin with Käsespätzle and veal schnitzel—all served in a cozy, inviting ambiance.

Likewise, for a more casual dining experience, The Kitz is the perfect spot for a quick breakfast or lunch when on the go. After a day on the mountain, unwind at the Antler Lounge for après ski. 

Antler Lounge

Goldener Hirsch offers top-quality amenities, including a rooftop infinity pool and hot tub, a full-service wellness spa, and a fitness center. The hotel added 21,000 square feet of new meeting and event space as part of its expansion. This makes it an ideal destination for weddings, corporate events, and special occasions. 

Ski valet and on-snow ski storage are available at the hotel. The Ski Butlers team was exceptionally helpful in sizing my rental equipment in the hotel’s locker room. This made the process as quick and convenient as possible. In addition, Goldener Hirsch also offers a complimentary shuttle service for trips within a four-mile radius. This service is great for venturing to Park City’s Mountain Resort and Main Street.

Pro tip: head next-door to Stein Eriksen Lodge, another stunning Virtuoso property. Enjoy a leisurely lunch at the iconic all-you-can-eat Skier’s Buffet, famous for its seafood tower!

Aprés Recovery: From Slopes to Plunge

From slopes to plunge, recover at Goldener Hirsch with a cold plunge post skiing on the rooftop, accessible for guests to use complimentary. For one thing, I wasn’t brave enough to brace the plunge. Although, it is said to boost mood, provide elevated energy, build recovery, relieve pain, and promote better sleep. Other cold plunge experience options include:

  • Inhalation, Exhalation: Spend 15 minutes conducting performance-based pranayama breath-work, followed by a plunge and cacao ceremony
  • Cardio to Plunge: After a short warmup, turn up the intensity with 14 to 24 minutes of HIIT exercise, followed by a 10-minute cooldown where you’ll learn the benefits of cold exposure and how best to breathe
  • Hot to Cold: A sauna session with breath-work followed by a cold plunge
