To start planning your vacation to Sundance Mountain Resort
Perched up on the slopes of Mount Timpanogos in Utah’s Wasatch Range, Sundance is a beguiling mixture of Mother nature and glamour. Redolent of the West, Sundance is one of those places you are desperately sad to leave, and offers a peace and tranquillity that sharply contrasts with the hustle and bustle at many Utah mountain resorts.
Discreetly tucked into the hillside among quaking aspen and fir, Sundance consists of a series of spacious lofts, suites, studios and mountain homes, each individually styled and using rough-hewn wood, warm tones and Native American accents in a way that integrates atmospherically with the environment. Comfortably rustic, and exuding a simple elegance that invites you to experience Utah's natural beauty, there are places to warm yourself by the fireplace after a day in the mountains, or step out through French doors to watch the brilliant overhead stars. Rustic simplicity does not mean however that luxury is overlooked, and each unit is equipped with complimentary WiFi and iPod and MP3 player docking stations, and the bathroom toiletries are from Gilchrist & Soame.
Activities are year-round, and the beautiful summer months are time to explore some of the most beautiful mountain scenery anywhere, hiking stunning trails to the mountain peaks or in the rivers and valleys, or getting into the saddle of a horse or mountain bike to venture along miles of mountain and valley trails. It’s also time to cool off with a white-water rafting or kayak trip on the Provo River, cast a line for trout in one of the world’s premier trout streams, or relax with a round of golf. Taking a full-moon lift ride is also a real highlight.
In winter, Alpine skiers and snowboarders will enjoy 450 acres and 41 separate runs of sprawling powder bowls and wooded trails while Nordic enthusiasts can explore nearly 20 miles of groomed scenic backcountry skiing. You can even take to the slopes at night to ski under the stars. Creativity is a year-round pursuit at Sundance, and activities include classes in pottery, sculpting, photography, and painting.
Dining options range from the romantic Tree Room with art from Robert Redford's private collection, while the Foundry Grill is no-nonsense affair with incredible views of Mount Timpanogos. After dinner, be sure not to miss the live entertainment in The Owl Bar, home to a restored 1890s bar once frequented by Butch Cassidy's Hole-in-the-Wall gang.
And then, when you thought life can’t get much better, have a treatment in the Spa at Sundance, a place inspired by the Sioux concept of Hocoka – a sacred environment for the restoration and healing of the body and spirit – and you will truly feel rejuvenated.
Sundance consists of a series of spacious lofts, suites, studios and mountain homes, each individually styled using rough-hewn wood and warm tones invoking its Native American past. Every room has complimentary wireless Internet access and I-pod/MP3 player docking stations.
Set in cosy cottages
|Mountain Loft Suite||
Mountain Lofts are the largest room type at Sundance and ideal for families. Each offers a kitchen, private master bedroom, living room and sleeping loft with two single beds. The living room also has a sleeper sofa.
There a lots of activities for children at Sundance Resort. There is the year-round 'Art Shack' where children can flex their creative muscles with beading, pottery and printmaking lessons. In the winter there are of course snowboard and ski lessons for children aged 7-12 and a special snow group for children aged 4-5 years. During the Summer there are the active options of fishing or horse-riding, or if you and your child loves nature then you can take a train ride together through the breathtaking scenery of the Southwest.
There are two main restaurants at the Sundance Resort; the fine dining restaurant, the Tree Room, and a more casual American dining experience at the Foundry Grill where breakfast is also served. The Owl bar offers live music at the weekend as well as holding a fascinating history; this restored 1890s bar is the original Rosewood Bar once frequented by Butch Cassidy's Hole-in-the-Wall Gang and has been moved to the resort from Thermopolis, Wyoming.
There are also a few choice places to eat during the Ski season on the mountain including Creekside, open only during the winter months to offer skiers and snowboarders the opportunity of a quick snack. There is also the Bearclaw, en-housed in the only mountaintop lodge in Utah. This also serves quick food for skiers and snowboarders and offers spectacular 360-degree views of Heber and Utah Valleys and the surrounding Wasatch Mountains.
During the winter the main activity of choice is of course on the slopes. While the opportunities for skiing and snowboarding are abundant there also fantastic facilities for snowshoeing and cross country skiing. Along with the winter thaw comes a multitude of outdoor adventures ranging from relaxing activities like scenic lift rides, fly fishing, golf and hikes to the more active river rafting, horseback rides and mountain biking. The art shack is also available throughout the year offering pottery classes and silversmith workshops as well as a glass blowing studio.
