Sundance mountain resort, Sundance, Utah
If you’re looking to ski with the stars on a mere mortal’s budget this coming season, head to Robert Redford’s spectacular mountain resort in Sundance, Utah. Nestled below Mount Timpanogos about an hour from Salt Lake City, this rustic-chic getaway sits on 6,000 protected acres of pristine wilderness and offers snow sports galore.
For as little as $30 a day, skiers and boarders can float through Utah’s famed champagne powder, with access to 41 runs and 450 skiable acres. Even the classes are a steal, with two-hour group classes starting at just $28. The resort also offers 16 miles of groomed cross-country ski trails and six miles of snowshoe trails (ski rentals, $28 per day; snowshoe rentals, $10 per day; trail fee, $11 per day).
Thaw out with luxury pampering at the Spa at Sundance, which pays homage to Native American traditions. Then settle in at Sundance’s cozy Tree Room restaurant for healthy seasonal fare plus unlimited stargazing (of the human variety). Back in your room, relax and watch the snowflakes whirl outside your window as you fall asleep to the resort’s best asset: total silence.
Rooms from $255 per night, double occupancy (800-892-1600, www.sundanceresort.com)
