Sundance Mountain Resort is a ski and summer resort located 13 miles northeast of Provo, Utah. The resort also includes restaurants, shops, and a spa. In 1969, Robert Redford bought this land now known as "Sundance" and envisioned the careful growth of a community committed to the balance of art, nature and community. Today, Sundance offers an atmosphere steeped in cultural heritage, inspired by the Ute tribes that first inhabited this canyon and continuing through the early 20th century as the Stewarts, a family of Scottish immigrants homesteaded the area. The second generation of Stewarts developed the mountain into a small ski resort, Timp Haven. In 1981, the Sundance Institute was founded here at Sundance Mountain Resort, followed by the Sundance Catalog in 1988. Many writers, directors, actors and artists have been inspired by the beauty of this canyon. Years of experimentation and refinement have ultimately resulted in what we now call Sundance. It’s Sundance’s ability to blend process and place that makes it dynamically unique and places it on uncharted waters on a steady course all of its own.
