Situated in beautiful Provo Canyon, at the base of 12,000-foot Mt. Timpanogos, Sundance is a year-round resort that emphasizes its arts programs as much as its skiing and outdoor activities. That should come as no surprise -- it's owned by actor/director Robert Redford, who bought the property in 1969 and named it after his character in the classic film Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. You might recognize the area: Redford and director Sydney Pollack set their 1972 film Jeremiah Johnson here.
The goal for Sundance was to create a place where the outdoors and the arts could come together in a truly unique mountain community, and it seems to be a success. The rustic yet elegant, environmentally friendly retreat is a full-service ski resort in winter. During the summer, you can explore great hiking trails and participate in other warm-weather outdoor activities.
