You don’t need tubes, skis or snowboards to see the mountains at wintertime. Sundance Resort has reopened its new ZipTour for a thrilling downhill ride over the slopes.

“It’s inviting for guests who don’t usually get out on the mountains in the wintertime if they aren’t a skier or snowboarder,” says Stevie Bamgartner, Sundance’s ZipTour manager. “Now guests have a chance to get up and see the mountain in a unique way.”

The Sundance ZipTour opened at the end of May in 2015 and averaged 200 riders per day during the peak of the season. After Halloween, the ZipTour closed, but Sundance has opened the ZipTour seven days a week throughout the winter to provide a new perspective for mountain lovers.

“The landscape is different with snow on the ground, so it is another fun experience to come out and enjoy the mountains,” Stevie says.

As riders slide down the zipline, they overlook skiers and snowboarders while Mount Timpanogos is blanketed in snow behind them.

Stevie recommends coming prepared with goggles, face covering, gloves, winter boots, snow pants and a jacket in order to stay warm. Sundance also offers these equipment rentals for a separate charge.

The Winter ZipTour is shorter than the summer tour. For $49, the winter ZipTour includes Ray’s lift, the Demo and Outlaw spans (3,871 total feet of soaring). Other ski and ZipTour packages are available, such as $99 for a full-day ski pass and ZipTour ride or you could add ski rentals for a $119 package.
