Fodor's Expert Review Sundance Resort

8841 N. Alpine Loop Rd., Sundance, Utah, 84604, USA Fodor's Choice

With 11,750-foot Mount Timpanogos serving as a backdrop, Robert Redford's resort is tucked into a 5,000-acre swath of lush wilderness and is a genuine tribute to arts and the natural world. Choose from luxurious mountain rooms, suites, and fire-warmed homes along the mountainside next to the creek. Whatever the season, there is ample opportunity here for a personal renaissance. Ski 450 acres of Utah-powder-filled terrain, or ride the summer zip line. Take a watercolor class, hike the wildflower-strewn trail to Stewart Falls, watch a Sundance Film Festival flick, relish the Tree Room's roasted bison (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 The Spa.
