Nestled below the impressive and challenging Wasatch Mountain Range is the upmarket resort of Sundance. Owned by Robert Redford, a Sundance holiday rental cabin is the perfect base for those looking for an active winter holiday. With stunning mountain views and a range of activities on offer, a Sundance holiday is guaranteed to leave you with some wonderful holiday memories.
With vast acres of wilderness and forest surrounding the resort, not to mention a mountain on your doorstep, Sundance is the perfect place for a holiday rental cabin for a winter holiday. Activities available on a Sundance holiday, particularly in the winter months, include skiing, mountain climbing, sledding, ice skating and hiking. Other activities available in the immediate area of the resort include horse riding, golf, fishing, bird watching, cycling and windsurfing. A Sundance holiday is also the perfect trip for those who love taking photographs or painting breathtaking scenery and wildlife.
If you can tear yourself away from your wonderful Sundance holiday rental cabin, then it is worth taking the journey to Salt Lake City. This vibrant and historically significant city is the perfect place to find out more about the culture and colourful past of the state of Utah.
One must-see when in Salt Lake City is the Fort Douglas Military Museum. The fort is a National Historic Landmark and covers an area of over 9,000 acres. Only the actual museum is open to the public but it has lots of military artefacts including uniforms, photographs and even armoured vehicles.
On the southern outskirts of Salt Lake City at American Fork Canyon, visitors will find the breathtaking Timpanogos Cave National Monument. This is a system of three caves all which have a range of naturally occurring, beautiful features such as helictites, flowstone and speleothems. The Timpanogos Cave National Monument is usually open between the months of May and October, depending on weather conditions.
Visitors on a Sundance holiday will be able to enjoy warm weather with low humidity and very cold winters. Due to its semi-arid climate, Sundance regularly reaches daytime temperatures of 26°C during the summer months although it can reach as high as 38°C. During the winter months the average daytime temperature is -1°C. Due to its high elevation, Sundance enjoys a lot of snow in the winter months but it can also mean quite a lot of rainfall too.
Travellers will arrive at Salt Lake City International Airport (SLC) which is about an hour away from the community of Sundance. Airlines that offer regular, affordable flights include Delta Airlines, British Airways, Virgin Atlantic and US Airways. Travellers can leave from various UK airports including Manchester (MAN), Heathrow (LHR), London Gatwick (LGW), Liverpool (LPL) and Glasgow (GLA).
