Sundance Overview

At Sundance you will find ski runs such as Center Aisle that are perfect for beginners while Grizzley Bowl and Redfinger Ridge will challenge the most advanced skiers.

Art abounds everywhere from the ubiquitous stone statues you will discover in the landscaping to the Art Shack where you can see recycled glass being transformed into new bottles and glasses that are used in the on-site restaurants. In the Nature Center, you will learn how Robert Redford purchased the land for Sundance in order to keep the canyon he loves from being over developed.
