The story of the Sundance Mountain Resort.

About Sundance

PowderHounds, Forbes Travel, and Conde Nast Travel rate Sundance as one of their top three destinations for US-based skiing and resort experiences.

  • There are no busy roadways, soaring skyscrapers, or sprawling retail outlets to disrupt your view. Instead, there is glorious skiing, pine trees, and art studios.
  • The focus on preservation is apparent in details throughout the resort, such as the bar soap that is handmade on-site and the chargers at the restaurants made from recycled glass and hand-blown at Sundance by artists in residence.
  • Wood-planked walls and floors, woolen blankets, stone-clad fireplaces, and exposed beams give spaces around the property a comfortable mountain lodge feel.
  • Take advantage of Sundance's creative vibe with a class at the resort's on-site art studio. Craft your leather journal or learn to make souvenirs like soap, candles, and jewelry to impress your friends long after returning home. 
  • The resort is where the Sundance Film Festival began and continues to host select events.
