This week, Deer Valley Resort announced Chef Peter Menteer as the new Executive Chef who will oversee the resort’s renowned culinary offerings. Deer Valley’s veteran Chef Chris Gibson has been promoted to Executive Sous Chef from his former role as Executive Chef of the resort’s Silver Lake Lodge.

“Chef Menteer brings more than 25 years of fine dining, catering and banquets expertise to his new role, and we are thrilled to see how his innovative vision and leadership will impact our premier food and beverage experience,” said Deer Valley Resort Vice President of Food and Beverage Jacob Musyt. “Additionally, on behalf of the entire Deer Valley team, I’d like to congratulate Chef Gibson for his well-deserved and hard-earned promotion to Executive Sous Chef.”

According to the folks at Deer Valley Resort, “Chef Menteer comes to Deer Valley from his home state of Montana where he worked as the Executive Chef at the Stock Farm Club in the Bitterroot Valley in Hamilton, Montana. After studying culinary arts at The Western Culinary Institute, where he graduated with honors and received a Le Cordon Bleu Degree, he worked in some of Portland’s top restaurants, gastro pubs and country clubs. Peter moved to Chicago and held positions at The Sheraton Chicago Hotel and Towers (now The Sheraton Grande), The Westin Chicago North Shore and The Westin Chicago Northwest, where he opened three restaurants as the Executive Chef. Outside of the kitchen, Menteer enjoys spending time with his family, mountain biking, snowboarding, traveling and playing music.”

Chris Gibson

“As the Executive Sous Chef, Chris Gibson will directly oversee all culinary operations in the day lodges, restaurants, and will assist with banquets and catering. A native of Salt Lake City, Gibson has worked for Deer Valley since 2003 where he began as the Silver Lake Restaurant Sous Chef before being promoted to Chef at Royal Street Café in 2006.  In 2017 he was promoted to Executive Chef of Silver Lake Lodge, overseeing all culinary operations for Silver Lake Restaurant, Royal Street Café, The Mariposa, and weddings and special events. Married with two daughters, Chris enjoys mountain biking, gardening, and camping with friends and family.”
