About Sundance Mountain Resort
Sundance Mountain Resort was established in 1969 by Robert Redford with the vision “to create an unspoiled and authentic experience in this intimate mountain resort where art, nature, and commerce unite to inspire and develop people, voices, and ideas.”
Sundance Mountain Resort is located in Provo Canyon, about 25 minutes from both Provo and Heber City.
Sundance Mountain Resort offers an abundance of outdoor activities, including skiing, ziplining, mountain biking, hiking, the spa, and fly fishing.
Ceremony and reception fees include a per person cost of either $150+ for the traditional package or $170+ for the premier package plus room rentals, priced depending on the size of the wedding as below:
90-99 guests | $1500 room rental
80-89 guests | $3000 room rental
70-79 guests | $4500 room rental
60-69 guests | $6000 room rental
Rehearsal dinners are priced off of Sundance’s main dinner menu and vary dependent on guest choices.
Sundance Mountain Resort offers year round weddings with both indoor and outdoor venue options. Sundance Resort requires an indoor space as a weather backup, and this rental is charged regardless of whether or not the space is used. In the summer, couples often choose to have the ceremony outside and the reception or cocktail hour inside.
> Redford Conference Center is a rustic 3,500 square-foot building nestled in the trees with seamless transitions between indoor and outdoor spaces.
