Sundance Resort Review

With 11,750-foot Mount Timpanogos serving as a backdrop, Robert Redford's 5,000-acre retreat is a genuine tribute to arts and nature. Whatever the season, there is ample opportunity here for a personal Renaissance. Ski 450 acres of Utah-powder-filled terrain, take a watercolor class, hike the wildflower-lined trail to Stewart Falls, watch a Sundance Film Festival flick, relish the Tree Room's roasted Utah elk (and Redford's personal collection of Native American art), and belly up to the Owl Bar for a beer. Catch some repose at a slope-side symphony, settle down in a rocker beside the gentle stream or wind your way through pines and aspens to your cottage, mountain home, or—ahhh—The Spa.

Lights, Camera…Western Action
Robert Redford's 5,000-acre ski resort and retreat deserves its accolades. The gorgeous leading lady—11,750-foot Mount Timpanogos—sets the lofty tone of nature-meets-art excellence. A supporting cast—cottages, restaurants, and creativity-nurturing spaces connected by winding pathways—blend elegantly into the scene with reclaimed timber and locally quarried stone. There's ample room for the action: hiking through wildflowers and skiing in knee-deep powder or slowing the tempo for a pottery class or a pint at the Owl Bar. Celebrities stay here, particularly during January's Sundance Film Festival, but neither they, nor the to-die-for Tree Room's pepper steak (with wilted spinach, buttermilk mashed potatoes, and mango chutney), can upstage Mother Nature.
