Noted as “one of the best lesser-known ski areas in the country” by SKI magazine’s editors. It's spectacular lodging, uncrowded slopes, terrain for all skiing abilities and arresting alpine scenery make a Sundance ski vacation the stuff of legends. Dedicated to serious skiers, Sundance is focused on a pro-environment, minimal-impact mountain experience Sundance is a year-round mountain community on 6,000 pristine acres at the base of the dramatically beautiful 12,000-foot Mount Timpanogos in the north fork of Provo Canyon. Don’t forget this is the home of the Sundance Film Festival and its famed-host Director/Actor Robert Redford. In 1969, Redford envisioned the careful growth of a community that would foster the alliance of arts and recreation while preserving the integrity of the land, and that’s exactly what Sundance is today.
And while this understated resort isn’t touted as offering incredible off-mountain activities, it in fact offers some the coolest activities and best dining scenes in the entire ski industry. The Sundance Art Shack Studios offer a wide range of artistic classes open to all and based on the belief that each of us have creative talents lying dormant within us. Outdoor enthusiasts can enjoy Sundance’s Nordic and snowshoeing trails. Foodies will love Sundance’s simple gourmet cuisine and world-class wine lists.
Sundance Village offers lodging ranging from guest cottage rooms to picturesque mountain homes, all beautifully appointed in the primitive, chic Western décor that pervades everything on a Sundance ski vacation.
Underrated, laid-back and uncrowded, Sundance isn't one of Utah's best-known resorts. You can’t seem much terrain from the base area, nor does a trail map accurately portray the spectacular Sundance skiing. But once you're on the mountain, it becomes clear. Sundance must be intentionally kept a secret. It all makes sense when skiing on the resort's varied terrain of wide-open powder bowls, perfectly groomed boulevards, playful gullies and a range of tree skiing.
