Sundance Mountain Resort

Sundance Mountain Resort   |  Adam Clark
  • Status: Summer Operations
  • Weather: Mostly Sunny, 50F

Rustic, elegant and handmade are some of the words that capture the feeling of Sundance Mountain Resort. This log cabin-esque skiing resort that Robert Redford built is only an hour from Salt Lake International Airport. Compared to its neighboring Utah resorts, Sundance has a cozy, nestled quality, yet there’s plenty of room. Its 45 runs across more than 450 acres still packed in 2,150 vertical feet and the spectacular snow of Utah. It's simply first class and considered one of the top rated ski resorts in the United States.

Plan Your Ski Trip

Run Highlights

Make a Note

  • Upgrades - New for the 2021-22 season, the resort has added a high-speed quad lift to Mandan Summit. The lift will open up previously unaccessible terrain.
  • Dramatic scenery - One of the highlights of Sundance is the Mount Timpanogos ridgeline. Located on the scenic Alpine Loop Road, the resort offers dramatic scenery and abundant wildlife to both downhill skiers and riders.
  • Redford’s mark - Many of the trails at Sundance have names drawn from famous Redford films.
  • Film festival - Don’t forget about the Sundance Film Festival screening packages available!
  • Art - Visit the local Art Shack or Gallery & Studio for art classes and to create a unique piece of your own.
  • Run tip - Take Rays Lift up to Arrowhead. Free from tracks, Bishops Bowl makes an attractive expert run, or cruise along Far East for a run like Johnny Hooker down The Sting. Beginners and children will love the Outlaw Trail and Stampede.
  • Owl Bar - Add some authentic Western influence to your ski day with a visit to the Owl Bar. Once frequented by Butch Cassidy’s Hole-in-the-Wall Gang, the 1890s Rosewood Bar was moved from its home in Thermopolis, Wyoming to Sundance and restored so you can enjoy it.
  • Nordic Center - Get into the backcountry with wide-groomed Nordic trails and separate snowshoe trails, courtesy of Sundance’s Nordic Center. Come back at night on certain dates throughout the season for full moon cross-country ski and snowshoe access, plus a guided snowshoe search for owls and other winter wildlife.
  • Sundance night skiing - On Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday nights the majority of the front mountain opens up for night skiing. Grab the best evening runs off Jake’s and Ray’s Lift, where you can access Top Gun, Montoya, Stampede, Maverick and more. The Terrain Park is open too!

Dining Highlight

While skiing, stop by the Bearclaw Cabin if only for the unique experience of hanging in a mountaintop lodge with a 360-degree panorama of Utah's Wasatch Mountains and the Utah and Heber valleys. This casual dining experience can get you back on the slopes, but you may find yourself lingering over the view for a while in one of the most scenic restaurants in America.
