NileGuide Expert tip:
Check online for special events and lodging-and-skiing packages. Sundance is open during all seasons.
True: the Sundance Resort is a ski area. But is has much more to offer than groomed trails and ski lifts. Opened in 1969 by legendary film star, environmentalist, and philanthropist, Robert Redford, this ski area has uniquely rejected the common path of resort growth and hotel developments. Instead, its trajectory has been one of artistic community and environmental conservation.
Sundance indeed offers lodging and dining -but these amenities draw from and reflect their natural surroundings, rather than ignore or threaten them.
In addition to skiing, guests of Sundance should plan to spend time checking out the works of local artists in residence, as well as special film events and cultural events.
