Winter Fun: Provo Canyon


1. Winter ZipTour
Zip zip hooray for vistas of the Rocky Mountains. The zipline at Sundance Mountain Resort is a popular summertime fling, but the zip doesn’t close for the snow. The Winter ZipTour launches guests across 3,870 feet of cable for spectacular views of Mount Timpanogos. Guests can gain speed of up to 65 miles an hour or take it slower to drink in the views. (Psst! They offer bounce back tickets for a discounted rate.)


2. Skiing
This winter wonderland offers both day passes and season passes. Sundance is home to trails for downhill skiing, cross country skiing and even snowshoeing at the Nordic Center. Four chairlifts and one handle tow transport skiers to runs that range in difficulty from beginner to seasoned. After a day on the slopes, skiers can visit the Creekside Cafe for hot drinks and lunch cuisine.


3. Sundance Film Festival
Film fans will travel from around the world to reel in the Sundance Film Festival from Jan. 24 to Feb. 3 this year. Locals also head up Provo Canyon or around the Point of the Mountain to see the world-renowned gathering of films and makers in Park City, Sundance and Salt Lake City. Tickets can be purchased in advance as individual tickets, packages or passes. Those who want to live on the edge of their calendar can download the eWaitlist app to join an electronic waitlist to get into previously-marked sold-out showings two hours before “lights, camera, action.”
