Sundance was ranked ninth in Conde Nast Traveler's "Best Places to Ski and Stay" and was also the worthy subject of a 12-page article in Ski Magazine just two years ago.

This season night skiing will operate on the same evenings from 4:30 to 9 p.m. Sundance is scheduled to open for all winter sports on Dec. 10.
Founded by Robert Redford in 1969, Sundance is a haven for discovery and inspiration. Located just 50 minutes from Salt Lake International Airport, Sundance is an exquisite destination retreat dedicated to maintaining the balance of art, nature and mountain recreation.
Nestled at the base of 12,000-foot Mount Timpanogos, Sundance offers diverse mountain recreation experiences and encourages the cultivation of art and self-expression, as well as the preservation of the land. Guests who are drawn to Sundance are as diverse as the multitude of activities offered here, from alpine skiing or snowshoeing through Aspens to throwing a pot at the Art Shack, there is something for everyone.
When Robert Redford founded Sundance, he envisioned a year-round destination for artistic expression, nature and environmental stewardship. It was not until 1988 that overnight accommodations were added and the Resort has since slowly and conscientiously added more lodging. Today, Sundance is comprised of 92 guest accommodations, a selection of mountain homes, an outdoor theater, screening room, a live performance theater, restaurants and bar, a General Store, public spaces, conference facilities and 41 ski runs. All are built from local materials--stone quarried in the area, indigenous cedar, fir, and pine--and are constructed to blend in with the surroundings.

The Tree Room's seasonal and innovative menus reflect the Sundance "earth to table" philosophy, paying homage to natural ingredients served at their peak. The restaurant's intimate interior also honors the region and its history: Native American art and western memorabilia from Robert Redford's personal collection are displayed throughout.
The Foundry Grill—The western inspired cuisine served here is prepared over a wood burning oven, rotisserie and grill, seasoned with organically grown herbs and vegetables. Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, The Foundry Grill offers unobstructed views of 12,000-ft. Mount Timpanogos from both the interior and an expansive patio.

Open daily from noon to midnight, with live music on weekends.
Zoom—Since its debut in 1995, Zoom had become one of Park City's most popular restaurants where diners can enjoy lunch or dinner from a menu that celebrates traditional all-American flavors and dishes.
