Robert Redford’s Sundance Film Festival is well known, but I didn’t know he also built a beautiful mountain resort. According to their web site, Sundance Resort is environment-friendly, offers affordable lodging ($89/night promotional rates), reasonable ski lift ticket prices ($30 weekday) and great flyfishing!
Surrounding Sundance Resort is a fragile, mountain wilderness environment of unique beauty. There are thousands of species of plants and animals, the most ancient residents of the canyon.
To coexist peaceably with such an environment requires an environmental philosophy of the kind that began at Sundance in 1969, when Robert Redford purchased thousands of acres with a desire to preserve the natural splendor of the area and to develop a small, sustainable community for nature and the arts.
People here come from all walks of life, but one belief is shared: our community should represent who we are and what we believe in. Sundance is an arts community, a recreational community, a community of people who appreciate the beauty of nature — and feel the responsibility to preserve it.
