is something refreshing about Sundance. While most other resort over
the past few years have strived to expand and offer more and more to
their guests, Sundance has been content to keep things simple. Offering
up what seems to be a minuscule 500 acres serviced by only three lifts,
Sundance still has more than enough to keep almost any level of skier
or snowboarder occupied.
Having never been to Sundance before, when I looked at the map for
the first time I scoffed. Used to much larger resorts like the Canyons
or Solitude I figured that a full day of Skiing here would be a waste.
After two runs I knew I was wrong. From the top of Arrowhead you have
access to some of the most diverse terrain I've encountered in all my
years skiing. From smooth and fast groomed trails like Amy's Ridge and
Bearclaw to more entertaining mogul filled runs like Bishops Bowl or
Pipeline. Even a challenging double black area called Far East.
In such a small area Sundance has managed to create enough runs to
keep you interested for many return trips. And at $35 for a midweek day
pass, its a deal that truly can't be beaten anywhere in Utah. So
whether your a local who hits the slopes every free moment or a visitor
looking to get in a few good runs before heading back to your less snow
endowed point of origin, give Sundance a try.
