Frequent travelers are used to seeing Centurion Lounges in an airport. But American Express is opening a temporary lounge at a location that might surprise you — Deer Valley, Utah.

The pop-up Centurion Lounge will be open today in Deer Valley for 10 days only. The lounge is located mid-mountain near the Empire Canyon Lodge & Montage Hotel, and will remain open today through March 19 — each day from 10:00am to 4:00pm MST. Inside the lounge, you'll have access to ski lessons from Olympic champions, wine tastings with the Centurion Lounge Wine Director, Anthony Giglio, Vosges chocolate tastings, après-ski cocktails and bites and warming stations for your helmets and boots.

Amex has opened pop-up lounges in the past, including one at LAX. You need to have the Platinum Card® from American Express, The Business Platinum Card® from American Express or the Centurion Card in order to gain access to the lounge. Each cardholder is allowed to bring in two guests or immediate family members — the same as the current rules for cardholders when it comes to Centurion Lounge access. Once you're inside, the goal of the pop-up is to create an experience similar to what you'll get in a normal Centurion Lounge — a relaxing feel so you're recharged when returning to the slopes.

This is an unexpected move from American Express and will be a fun place to be treated to some extra perks on your vacation — check it out if you're skiing at Deer Valley between now and March 19.
