SUNDANCE, Utah, May 10, 2023 – Sundance Mountain Resort announced today it will be celebrating an early preview of its summer season Saturday, May 13 and Sunday, May 14. Thanks to the successful completion of seasonal lift maintenance and a beautiful forecast, scenic lift rides on Outlaw Express, the Zip Tour, and for the first time ever, skiing in May on the Back Mountain will be available this weekend.

“The unique thing about this resort is there’s something special going on every season of the year,” says Sundance President and General Manager Chad Linebaugh. “This weekend will serve as a milestone as snow melts away and we celebrate the beginning of the summer. And the fact that we can ski the Back Mountains this late into the year will be historic.”

Over Mother’s Day weekend all Sundance season pass holders will have access to intermediate and advanced skiing on the Back Mountain with the bonus of sunshine, food and drink at the Resort’s mountaintop Bearclaw Cabin. Discounted lift tickets will be available to the general public. Additional details on this weekend’s skiing, scenic lift rides, dining options and the Zip Tour can be found at
