Sundance Utah Ski Resort

>

Fifty-five minutes south of Salt Lake City lies Robert Redford's little hideaway. He built Sundance Ski Resort in 1969 to be a place where the arts could flourish in sync with nature. And the skiing there also flourishes.

Overview

Sundance Ski Resort is flat-out stunning. The 500 acres of skiable terrain sit tucked underneath the ominous striations of the Timpanogos mountains. The beauty makes an ideal backdrop for both filmmakers and riders.

In 1969, shortly after filming Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, the Sundance Kid himself, Robert Redford, bought Timphaven Resort and some additional acres surrounding 12,000-foot Mount Timpanogos and turned it into Sundance.

Sundance offers skiing and riding terrain for all ability levels from open bowl skiing to tree shots to long groomers. Ride the quad lift from the base of the Village for easy access to the two additional lifts and a 2,150-foot vertical drop.

Location

Sundance is located 51 miles southeast of Salt Lake International and a few miles west of Orem. Take I–15 south towards Provo. Exit at 800 North in Orem (#272). Head east towards the mountains and continue up the canyon approximately 7 miles to Scenic Route #92- the first left after the tunnel. Sundance is 2 miles on the left.

Season/Hours

Starting mid-December, lifts are open daily 9:00 a.m. - 4:30 p.m., through the first weekend in April. The resort stays open until 9 p.m. for night-skiing Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday. The weekends may get slightly busy with Provo locals but Sundance is like a ghost town midweek.
