Sundance Resort
Description:

For those of you who like specifics, Sundance was named by the editors of Ski magazine as one of the best lesser-known areas in the country. It boasts 450 acres of pristine Utah terrain and snow, and a vertical drop of 2,150 feet. The Quad lift from the village eases access to additional lifts and terrain ranging from beginner to expert. In the summer, the same lift offers a scenic chair ride and access to mountain biking and hiking trails. But, if you're not an expert, don't let that vertical drop deter you. Sundance presents both alpine skiers and snowboarders a vast diversity of runs, from gentle green circles to challenging double black diamonds. Skier services include an acclaimed PSIA Certified ski school, specialized ski workshops and a children's ski school designed to meet a child's individual needs.

Pros: Easy to navigate with children, arts and crafts, pottery, film screenings, bar, restaurants, destination wedding, drive to Park City, Alta, Snowbird,

Cons: Tiny mountain, not for skiers looking for a challenge, in the middle of nowhere so pretty much stay within resport for food, entertainment, etc.

Go to Sundance if you are looking for rustic but upscale accommodations.  You can stay in rooms and condos within the resort, close to skiing, restaurants and arts and crafts or you can stay in the many large houses up in the hills.  Bring your kids along for this vcacation. During the day, you can go for ski runs then when your children (or you) want to do something else or are cold, you can do pottery, arts & crafts,  movie screenings, spa or just sit at the sandwich shop or bar.    

The mountain is small.  This makes it perfect for families with children or for friends and a couple who are looking for a getaway that is small, rustic, not mobbed with people like most nice resorts in the Southwest.  Note**** there is no nearby town or other restaurants closeby.  This is more of a "camp" like feel but it has that rustic yet elegant feel. 

For the skiing enthusiasts of the group
, Park City, Alta and Snowbird are not too far away.  

Nightlife is fun if you bring your own group.  Restaurant is made out of wood inside yet is elegant at the same time. The bar is a cozy, wooden bar with great music and an all-natual woodsy ambiance. 

They also have a great selection of DVDs at the front desk - many historical movies included - to borrow and bring to your room.  There is a beautiful gift shop with many hand made products including clothes, jewelry and candles.  It is also fun to just browse
the wonderful photos famous directors and actors of past Sundance Film Festivals and Sundance visitors. 

This is a beautiful spot for a destination wedding weekend and has fun activites for all - skiers or not.   The large event space has high vaulted ceilings and is made out of wood yet the walls are made of glass so you can see the beautiful scenery from inside.

It really is a beautiful getaway if you want a relaxed, rustic yet beautiful vacation, and are looking to get away among the Utah wilderness and not looking for a scene.

Pros: Not crowded, close proximity to Utah Valley

Cons: Lacks terrain

Good mountain if you want to avoid the mobs of people up Big and Little Cottonwood. Fun terrain if you're not looking for anything too crazy.

 

It's small, but if you just like to ski and don't really care about a small atmosphere without true big mountain terrain, it's fun.
