In 1969, Robert Redford bought the land now known as Sundance and envisioned the careful growth of a community committed to the balance of art, nature and community. Today, Sundance offers an atmosphere steeped in cultural heritage. Inspired by the Ute tribes that first inhabited this canyon and continuing through the early 20th century as the Stewarts, a family of Scottish immigrants homesteaded the area.
Unique Features: In November 1979, Redford held a 3-day conference for filmmakers and professional artists at the Sundance Mountain Resort. The goal of the event was to promote indie filmmakers. These efforts laid the foundation for what would become the Sundance Institute. In 1981, the Sundance Institute was founded to foster and celebrate the diversity of American filmmaking.
Accommodations: Each of Sundance’s cottages, cabins and homes is discreetly tucked into a mountainside setting above the Sundance Village. The uniquely appointed style integrates with the mountain environment, including rough-hewn woods, warm tones and Native American accents. Most of Sundance’s beautifully designed accommodations are suites, providing kitchens, living areas, lofted ceilings and views of the surrounding natural landscape.
As Suite As It Gets: When money is no object, go for the Mountain Lofts which are the largest room type at Sundance, providing plenty of extra space. Each offers a full-size kitchen, private master bedroom, living room and sleeping loft with extra beds. Or, Owl Spirit is one of the most unique cabins available at Sundance. Reclaimed wood and cozy western architecture are used throughout to offer an authentic experience.
Dining: Enjoy the romantic atmosphere of candlelight and soft illumination accenting beautiful Native American art from Robert Redford’s private collection as you savor fresh, seasonal mountain cuisine. The Tree Room, a Forbes Travel Guide Four Star Restaurant, has received Utah’s Best of State award for fine dining. The Foundry Grill offers the freshest foods cooked to order for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
Activities: Sundance offers activities for every season: alpine and cross-country skiing, snowboarding, horseback riding, fly fishing, mountain biking, hiking, yoga classes, or just a scenic lift ride and much more! Art lessons are also available for pottery, jewelry, watercolor, oil, photography or print-making. The Sundance Preserve offers guided hikes during the summer as well other activities to raise awareness for the Rocky Mountain wilderness.
Spa & Fitness: The Spa at Sundance is a nature-inspired eco-spa where natural surroundings and Native American influences provide a complete wellness menu to restore peaceful inner balance. In the seven natural-wood, softly-lit treatment rooms of the eco-friendly building, they blend Native American traditions, totally natural products and human touch to bring your body, mind and spirit back into balance.
Location: Park City is the main location of the United States’ largest independent film festival, the Sundance Film Festival. The city has two major ski resorts: Deer Valley Resort and Park City Mountain Resort. Both Deer Valley and Park City Mountain Resorts were the major locations for ski and snowboarding events at the 2002 Winter Olympics.
Closest Airport: The Salt Lake City International Airport is 55 minutes away.
Children’s Programs: Yes. The Sundance Nature Center’s summer camps are especially designed with three ideas in mind: having fun, spending as much time outdoors as possible, and learning about the spectacular environment of Sundance and Mount Timpanogos.
Pet Friendly: Yes, small pets are allowed. Restrictions may apply.
Weddings: Begin your marriage among towering pines with Mt. Timpanogos as your backdrop. From a simple ceremony to a lavish weekend wedding, they can help you create your once-in-a-lifetime experience. You and your guests can enjoy plenty of mountain activities ranging from horseback riding to zip line tours, and a spa to relax and rejuvenate before and after the big day.
Meetings: Secluded yet accessible, Sundance Mountain Resort is a popular Utah location to host company workshops, conferences and seminars as well as business meetings and group retreats. Unique, naturally-lit meeting facilities with attached outdoor meeting space allow groups to take advantage of the majestic natural surroundings.
Extra Info: Be sure to visit the Owl Bar. Once frequented by Butch Cassidy, the restored 1890s bar was moved from Thermopolis, Wyoming to Sundance. Join them for creative cocktails, beer and wine as well as an inventive, seasonal menu. This boutique resort is wonderfully tucked away on 5,000 picturesque acres of wilderness in the shadow of Utah’s 12,000-foot Mt. Timpanogos.
