After visiting and skiing at Park City I can see why people visit this resort. It was so easy to get around and the views were amazing. We did a ZIP Tour with Chase and it was the most unreal and awesome experience ever. I can't wait to come back.

Sundance Resort has become my annual destination for a luxury winter vacation.  Sometimes I think about going to Europe or Tahoe but then I call Sundance and as soon as I make the reservation I feel so happy.   This resort is intimate and comforting with competent and efficient service.  Occasionally you might be served by young adults and maybe they do not know everything but they are always friendly and want to help.  The food and service in both restaurants and even the deli is exceptional.   If you have the most popular dish (pepper steak) at the Tree Room or just a BLT from the deli, the meal will be delicious and the food is consistent.   The menu items taste exactly as I remember them year after year.   Consistency is something Sundance always delivers but this does not mean is remains the same. Sundance always improves while maintaining the tenets of what makes it so unique.   In terms of skiing, the mountain is called small by some skiers but I don't agree.   It is not crowded so you can explore many areas.   It is comprised of great runs, not a bunch of connected catwalks, and the view is the most beautiful in the Park City area.   For a post ski drink, The Owl Bar is very cool with fireplaces.  The accomdations have genuine decor, balconies overlooking a river and the details are carefully maintained.   Well if you have read all this, thank you and I must close with this:  Sundance is what I call a self sufficient resort.   If you are a fussy, unfit person, this resort might be too dull for you or not achieve your level of service needs.    If you like what I have noted, plus complimentary yoga, and the chance to take a day off the slopes and snowshoe or cross country ski in the Aspen trees in a sureal mountain setting, then you will find this location perfect.   Sent from my Verizon, Samsung Galaxy smartphone

Sundance is so beautiful and you feel like you are in the middle of nowhere, but you're not. Robert Redford's little gem is worth the time to get to this corner canyon and stay. If you like Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid type accommodations in a snowy setting by a roaring fire you are in for a treat. Fine dining at its finest and rustic accommodations that are anything but rustic, just cozy winter and summer fun in the beautiful mountains. Go!

This is a great small resort. We stayed in a large studio, which although extremely rustic was very clean, comfortable and with all of the conveniences you would expect at any fine hotel, including a private hot tub. Lodging prices include lift tickets!. To get around the resort there is an on call shuttle service for which we never had to wait more than a 5-8 minutes. All the staff was kind courteous and helpful. As for skiing don't expect a place like Park City or Snowbird but the terrain and the ski school were terrific. Only possible drawback was the absence of any high speed lifts. Very highly recommended.

I visited this resort during Sundance Film Festival. It is a very charming place where Robert Redford started his legacy that is today Sundance. The place not only kept his features, but also has acquired the aura of being the place where the festival originated and where Redford still gather her main staff of the festival from time to time. The area is proper for skiing and it seems that the mountain is not that high, facilitating who is beginner. So we saw lots of teens and kids skiing. The place is very charming. It has the hotel, a restaurant, a nice cafe and shop that sells merchandise from the resort, parking and a movie theatre. It's very easy to find your way at the resort. I cannot say about the hotel, since my husband and I were not staying there, but surely it attracted us to stay there next time when visiting Utah.

I was there for a conference/ family vacation. The setting is amazing. Our room was very comfortable and quiet. Every staff member was extremely helpful and very pleasant. The food in the restaurants and at our meeting functions was excellent. The spa is lovely. Caroline provided an excellent massage. The attention to detail to make your stay here relaxing and enjoyable is impressive. I definitely want to return for more skiing, but also in all of the other seasons as well.

I was there for a meeting. The resort was beautiful. The staff were all wonderful and the food at all of our functions was very good. We had a room up in Mandan which had a great view of the main slope. It was nice, needed a few repairs in the bathroom but the view made up for that. It was quite a hike to the base but they have a prompt shuttle service if you don’t want to walk. The snow was not too good but can’t really blame them. Zip Lin was awesome.

We have been to Sundance for a wedding in January and we really loved this resort! Perfect skiing, beeautiful cabins and a great country side! We had lots of snow during our visit and can only imagine what it looks like during the other seasons.

We were very excited to visit this resort loaded with heritage and take a few days to step away into this gorgeous mountainous setting. Our room was spacious, romantic, a great view and loved that we could build our own fire. There was rustic charm, comfortable bed and cozy atmosphere across the whole resort. The bell/valet staff who helped us there was less than enthusiastic as was most of the staff across the resort and restaurants. Our meals were delicious, so were the views by the fireside in a place that felt timeless. However, the host staff at The Foundry, the bartender at The Owl, the Sundance store staff and Front Desk staff seemed less than thrilled to serve and gave all their attention to the other staff in each of these establishments. It was a little shocking to see so many staff and all of their personal conversations everywhere we visited. The Owl Bar and the Manhattan drink was unforgettable. We had a great experience despite the negligent staff.

This review is for skiers. If you are going there for other than skiing you do not need to continue. We booked our yearly skiing vacation there. We had been there before and liked the surroundings. Unfortunately this year, there was very little snow. Only 2 lifts were open and all the runs were beginner level. Given that the lifts are so old (no express lifts), it took me 5 times longer to go up the lift than to go down the run. The back mountain was closed. We were told that there was not enough snow and was not cold enough to make snow. I thought differently but I trusted their opinion. We had to drive 1 hour to ski in Deer Valley where it snowed and they were making snow. I was not going to write a review about this since I did not think it was their fault. The snow issues were allover Utah. However, I was really angered when they opened the back mountain a day or 2 after we left, even though there was no additional snow and the temperatures were no different. It is clear to me that their decision when we were there was based on economics. From what I saw when I was there, they could have opened the back mountain and some of the black runs on the lower mountain earlier, but they just did not want to spend the money for a few people. Too bad for us. I felt ripped off. As far as lodging, do not stay in the river run section. It is devoid of any charm. The staff, however, were amazing and did everything they can to help. This is the only reason I did not give it one star. If skiing is the main reason you are going on vacation, avoid this place by all means. For the price at Sundance, you can go to Deer Valley. They are higher elevation than most other resorts in Utah and have an amazing capability to make snow.
