About the Ski Resort

Deer Mountain is located in a natural snow belt and averages 150 inches of snowfall annually. Many acres of Black Hills snow and miles of runs are waiting here for you to enjoy.

Deer Mountain, located just minutes from Deadwood and Lead, offers a lot of night life and apres-ski action

Novice skiers love the beginners area where they can warm up their ski legs and get started with the Poma. Many challenges exist for the advanced and intermediate skiers on Deer Mountain with more than 850 feet of vertical drop.

A 3,000-foot triple chair and two Pomas move a large capacity of skiers per hour.

Enjoy the newly remodeled day lodge and new food court. Warm up in the sun on the new wraparound deck! Relax in the new Poma Bar where you can order your favorite cocktail, hot drink, wine or beer. You wonĘt miss your favorite sporting event with the big screen TV.

Families appreciate the reasonably priced lift tickets and equipment rentals. Reduced rates for multi-day, students, seniors and groups.
