Sundance Ski Resort, Utah
EXCLUSIVE TO SKI AND SPORT IN UK
Ski and Sport are proud to exclusively introduce to the UK school and group market, the famous, Robert Redford owned Sundance Mountain Resort. This high level, snow sure and environmentally friendly ski area has been uniquely and sympathetically developed since its purchase in the late 1960’s by the Redford Family to now become one of the most atmospheric and sought after ski areas in the USA. Its a ski experience like no other and here is your chance to become one of the first ‘special few’ to experience this ski resort from the UK, for the very first time.
This year round resort spans over 5,000 acres on the slopes of Mount Timpanogos and together with skiing also hosts the world famous Sundance Film Festival held in January and attracting numerous high profile US actors.
Today Sundance Mountain Resort has uncrowded skiing for every ability with 20% beginner trails, 40 intermediate and 40% advanced trails. The resort terrain climbs 2,150 vertical feet up the north east slope of Mt Timpanogos, reaching the crest of the ridge at Bearclaw Cabin. This restaurant at the resort’s apex of 8,250 feet provides spectacular 360 degree views of the surrounding landscape and of Mt Timpanogos as it rises to a height of nearly 12,000 ft.
In recent years the ski area has expanded considerably and is served by an ever improving lift system including Rays Lift built in the 1990’s which opened up the back of the mountain and has a capacity of 1800 skiers per hour ensuring very little queuing. The mountain is served by 4 chairlifts and a handle tow for beginners at the mountain’s base. Sundance now offers the 6th longest zip line in the US and the most vertical drop of any zip line in North America. In 2015 Sundance Mountain Resort replaced its Triple “Arrowhead” lift with a new quad chairlift names “Red’s Lift” in honour of Robert Redford and his family. This lift is able to carry 500 more people uphill per hour and again reduced queue’s. The Resort now totals 44 ski runs over 450 acres and 2 terrain parks- 1 intermediate/ advance and 1 beginner.
To ski Sundance is special, exhilarating and one trip your group will never forget… no wonder its the best kept secret amongst utah ski locals in the ‘know’!
