Why should you visit Sundance Mountain Resort

Just an hour from Salt Lake International Airport, Robert Redford’s Sundance Mountain Resort is known as much for its world-class lodging and dining, stunning scenery and its thriving indie film scene as it is for its skiing.

At 450 acres, the resort has an elevation drop of 2,150 feet and 42 runs that cater to all experience levels. What’s more, the resort’s proximity to Park City and Deer Valley make it easy to experience the best of Utah’s ski scene.

Sundance Mountain Resort offers night skiing on certain nights, and also features a Nordic Ski Center. The resort has on-mountain ski and snowboard rentals, and there is a ski and snowboard school that provides private and group lessons for kids and adults, as well as season-long programs. There is both slopeside lodging and dining at Sundance Mountain Resort, including a 360-degree view from the Bearclaw Cabin at the top of Ray and Reds lifts.

The season at the Sundance Mountain Resort generally runs from from the first week of December to the first week of April. The best snow coverage generally occurs between December and March. Expect longer lift lines and higher prices during the holidays, as well as the Sundance Film Festival in January.
