This year Montage Deer Valley—an American Express Fine Hotels & Resorts property—in Park City, Utah, turns 10, and they're going all out to celebrate. To honor the milestone, the luxury mountain resort created an over-the-top A Milestone to Remember package that costs a whopping $100,000.

So, what do you get for the six-figure price tag? Well, you and nine friends get a three-night stay, a night in The Après Lounge with unlimited Veuve Clicquot, a 10-course culinary experience at Apex, a custom ski and boot fitting with Gorsuch, and a signature treatment at Spa Montage Deer Valley. But the most exciting part of all is you also get a ski session with an Olympic champion.

Yes, a pro will take you and your crew out to hit the slopes showing off some of the best ski runs in the area. Maybe you'll even get a few top pointers on how to up your powder shredding game. Now that, some would argue, is priceless.

For those looking to celebrate without splashing on the extravagant package, there's the Peak Suite Retreat package that gives travelers a complimentary suite upgrade when booking a Peak King Guestroom throughout the year. And guests seeking out a taste of the anniversary can do so with Executive Pastry Chef Stephen Jones' handcrafted, limited-edition collection of 10 bonbons.

Each one signifies a Montage memory at the resort. For example, the Swiss Alps Milk Chocolate was made to represent its two Swiss Bernese Mountain dog greeters, and the Moab BonBon symbolizes the hotel's expeditions to Utah's National Parks.

"This anniversary is special to the entire team at Montage Deer Valley and our community. It's been an absolute privilege to welcome so many guests and locals over the last 10 years," said Montage Deer Valley's General Manager, Joseph Mattioli, in a statement. "We've been honored to help them celebrate their personal milestones and create life-long memories."
