Sundance Mountain Resort
8841 N. Alpine Loop Rd., Sundance
Robert Redford bought the land that Sundance Resort sits on back in the 1960's, when he first started coming to Utah. Investors encouraged him to develop it by adding condominiums and rentals, but Redford insisted on keeping as much of the area pristine as possible, creating a community centered around creativity and conservation. Unsurprisingly, the aesthetic of the lodge here is reminiscent of the resort's namesake catalog, with wood-paneled walls, cozy flannel bedding, and working fireplaces—there are standard rooms available, but for longer trips, check into an apartment-like suite outfitted with a full kitchen. Staying here, you'll be right at the base of the property's namesake mountain, which, at only three chairs, is smaller than nearby Deer Valley, but intimate and unique in a very special way.
