Sundance 2020 Guide

Our great winter continues, and the snow has been piling up in Park City. With all the great powder days the season is flying by and we can hardly believe that Sundance is already here. This is by far the most entertaining time of year to get out and about in town, and if you have never attended you should come up and check it out.

Or if you prefer skiing to celebrity watching, it can also be a sneaky good time of year to get out on the slopes in Park City. Regardless of your preference, just make sure you figure out the parking and traffic situation before heading out! We have some good suggestions below that will help you successfully navigate around Park City during the next couple of weeks.

Hope to see you up here soon!

Excitement is building for this year's Sundance Film Festival! The 2020 festival received a record-breaking 15,100 submissions, which included nearly 4,000 feature-length films. See below to learn more about some of the films that have generated early buzz, and get some insider tips for enjoying the festival!

At the 2020 Sundance Film Festival, "we'll explore the theme of 'imagined futures,' inside the theaters and in the conversations sparked by the work we are presenting," said Keri Putnam, the Executive Director of Sundance. These "imagined futures" came from far and wide, and the stats are impressive!

Putnam said, "We believe diverse stories from independent artists around the world open us up to new perspectives and possibilities – at a time when fresh thinking and dialogue is urgently needed" (ParkRecord).  
Thursday |  January 30 | 4:00 - 5:30pm

In an effort to enhance visitor interest during the second week of Sundance, festival organizers will seek to liven things up with the "Imagined Futures Bonfire".
The bonfire will take place at the flagpole lot on lower Swede Alley on the afternoon of Thursday, January 30. According to organizers, the bonfire will "celebrate the Sundance Institute, storytelling, and independent film" and "will be a fantastic opportunity for our Park City community to join us in celebration as we head into the final weekend of the festival". More info on the bonfire can be found here.

Ditch your car and use the free shuttles - they're your best bet for getting around town. If you must drive, park at one of the commuter lots at Ecker Hill or Richardson Flat and take a shuttle! Go here for more information on getting around.

Most visitors come to town during the 1st week of the festival. The 2nd half of the festival is far less crowded so venues are easier to access and restaurant reservations can be obtained!

Not far from Park City, you'll find four Sundance Festival venues that are far less crowded. Check out all the Sundance venues here, under Theaters.

Park City's population more than quadruples during Sundance. Make dining reservations now and pack plenty of protein bars before you head out!

Check out Park City restaurants!

Parkites love to ski while the festival is in town, and so far only a small number of festival-goers know that it's prime time to hit the uncrowded slopes.
With 118 feature-length films represented in this year's festival, there are plenty of options for film connoisseurs. Outlined below are some films that are generating early buzz.
Directed by former Sundance Grand Jury prize winner Benh Zeitlin (Beasts of the Southern Wild), Wendy re-imagines the classic Peter Pan story, with a new setting. It finds Wendy as the eldest child of a working-class family who gets into mischief with her brothers. They meet a mysterious boy named Peter and venture to his island, suspended in time, where childhood remains forever. When something threatens their new, seemingly idyllic life, it’s up to Wendy to save the children. With Zeitlin at the helm, and given what he did with the magical realism of Beasts, this seems like a truly remarkable film.
Taylor Swift: Miss Americana
This opening night documentary provides a raw and emotionally revealing look at one of the most iconic artists of our time. This doc captures Swift during a transformational period in her life as she learns to embrace her role not only as a songwriter and performer but as a woman harnessing the full power of her voice.
This remake of the critically-acclaimed Swedish film Force Majeure features Julia-Louis-Dreyfus and Will Ferrell as a couple that barely escapes an avalanche during a family ski vacation in the Alps. Thrown into disarray, they are forced to reevaluate their lives and how they feel about each other.
The Last Thing He Wanted 
A veteran D.C. journalist loses the thread of her own narrative when a guilt-propelled errand for her father thrusts her from byline to unwitting subject in the very story she’s trying to break. Adapted from the Joan Didion novel of the same title, this film features a cast that includes Anne Hathaway, Ben Affleck, Jeremy Irons, and Rosie Perez.
Us Kids
Determined to turn unfathomable tragedy into action, the teenage survivors of Parkland, Florida catalyze a powerful, unprecedented youth movement that spreads with lightning speed across the country, as a generation of mobilized youth takes back democracy in this powerful coming-of-age story.

A young couple moves in with the famed author, Shirley Jackson, and her Bennington College professor husband, Stanley Hyman, in the hope of starting a new life but instead find themselves fodder for a psycho-drama that inspires Shirley's next novel. Starring Elisabeth Moss.

The Glorias
Oscar winners Julianne Moore and Alicia Vikander are two of the four actresses who play Gloria Steinem in this unconventional biopic directed by Julia Taymor. This film covers Steinem's varied life as an equal rights crusader, journalist, and activist, from her role in the revolutionary women's rights movement to her, travels throughout the U.S. and around the world.
Rebuilding Paradise
On November 8, 2018, a spark flew in the Sierra Nevada foothills, igniting the most destructive wildfire in California history and decimating the town of Paradise. Unfolding during the year after the fire, this is the story of the Paradise community as they begin to rebuild their lives. Directed by Ron Howard.
Hope to see you around town! Be safe and enjoy the festival!

New Developments in Park City & the Wasatch Back

If you've been out and about in Park City or the Heber Valley recently you have probably noticed that there is a lot of new construction activity.

It’s Woodward!


Park City's Newest Contribution to Athlete Development
We are excited to welcome Woodward Park City to our community amenities. Occupying the site immediately to the east of the formerly-named Gorgoza Tubing Park between Pinebrook and Summit Park, Woodward  is scheduled to open December 14. This is the 11th facility in Powdr Corp's family of Woodward facilities nationwide. 


With drop-in sessions, all-access tickets, day sessions, lift tickets, lessons, summer day camps, monthly memberships, and special events there is always a way to play for kids and kids-at-heart."


KW Park City Associates took a private tour of the facility last week and were collectively blown away with all the offerings. Essentially, this facility will appeal to the “kid” in all of us. 
"Woodward Park City is a world-class, year-round action sports destination in one of the greatest outdoor regions in the world. Woodward Park City has a fully integrated campus made up of a state-of-the-art action sports hub and more than 60 acres of action sports and mountain parks that encourages intuitive growth and safe progression. Woodward Park City has lift-accessed snowboarding, skiing and mountain biking as well as indoor and outdoor facilities for skateboarding, BMX, scooter, parkour and cheer. Woodward Park City also offers tubing serviced by two surface lifts with the longest lanes in Utah. For passionate action sports athletes of all ages and abilities to play and train everyday, Woodward Park City is open 365 days and nights all year.
Watch Full Video Flythrough

The monthly pass program offers fantastic introductory pricing for endless fun. Staff at Woodward strongly suggest this option, and so do we! We’re also loving the addition of an adult dining option for this part of town. 



The Olympic Legacy Foundation added much-needed athlete housing recently with the opening of the Residences at Olympic Park, which offers both short- and long-term high quality “hostel” style housing.
One of our greatest legacies from hosting so many of the events during the 2002 Winter Olympic Games was the addition of state-of-the art training facilities which became part of our community fabric, allowing both aspiring local athletes and visitors to hone their skills. Many families and athletes have chosen to relocate to Park City to train at our facilities and many more visit for competitions. Athlete development has always been a huge part of our Wasatch Back offering. It’s wonderful that our kids can aspire to achieve World Cup or Olympic caliber skills due to our facility availability. And even if you don’t have athletic kids, we all agree that bumping into Olympian and world-class athletes just about everywhere you go in the Wasatch Back is unique!
Once local high school kids become competitive in alpine disciplines on a national or international basis, their educational needs become a challenge.
Here in Park City we are fortunate to have the Winter Sports School, which is a public charter school that allows students to compete all winter and take college prep classes during spring and summer. 
The US Ski and Snowboard Team has called Park City home since 2009, opening the Center of Excellence in 2009. Athletes from around the country come here to train with the team, with many moving here full time.
Due to the incredible snowfall last season, our fall colors have been exceptionally brilliant. Here’s a peek at some of our favorite shots from one of our great regional photographers, Brent Haddock.

Looking for a Home in Park City, Utah?




A jewel nestled in the mountain, a small community that is also a ski town, and a place where quality public schools are located equal an awesome quality of life. Why would you move to Park City, Utah? There are ten great reasons listed by those who live there now and those who are looking for a home in Park City, Utah.

1.       When you think of Park City, you think of some of the best ski resorts in the world. The town lies at 7,000 feet above sea level, and a year-round population of around 25,000 invites you to Park City Mountain Resort and Deer Valley Resort. Deer Valley was voted the #1 ski resort in North Amerian by SKI Magazine and greets skiers with expertly groomed mountains and views that will cause you to catch your breath.

2.      If you get tired of Park City’s Ski resorts, several topnotch ski resorts are within an hour’s drive. Try out Alta, Brighton, Snowbasin, Snowbird, Solitude, and Powder Mountain. That’s only a few. You can also go Powderbird Helicopter Skiing or catch a tram right from the lobby in a hotel.

3.     The public school system in Park City has been voted the best in the state. Park City High ranks in the top 2% nationally. Park City High lets out at 12:30 p on Fridays so students can go skiing or participate in other sports or even go to work at the ski resorts. Park City features a charter high school, Winter Sports School, that functions on a reverse school schedule to adapt to winter travel and competition. Sign up for Park City Day School with classes from K-8th grade that is one of the premier private schools along the Wasatch Front.

4.       If you are looking for a home in Park City, Utah, think of convenience. Salt Lake International Airport is a 45-minute drive from town where you can catch a flight to just about anywhere in the world. The Utah Department of Transportation has been widening highways and resurfacing roads to help with any traffic congestion.

5.       Business opportunities abound in Park City. Park City is part of the Salt Lake/Provo/Park City triangle, also called Silicon Slopes. Utah is an emerging techno-powerhouse. There are three major universities, the University of Utah, BYU, and Utah Valley University, if you want to advance your education.

Fall Events & Lifestyle Newsletter 2019

The recent dusting of snow on the mountaintops and the golden glow of the aspens signals that fall has finally arrived here in Park City. While this means that the ski season is not too far off, don't overlook autumn as it is the best time of year for a hike or a Sunday drive (see our recommendations below). And the upcoming Shot Ski event must be seen in person to be fully appreciated! As always, please reach out to us if you have any questions about any of the following events - we would love to catch up and share any insider's tips that we may have. 
- Greg, Crystal and Matt
Welcome to Autumn! While it's never easy to predict how vibrant our fall foliage will be, after a winter with record snowfall and a recurring monsoonal flow this summer, we are hoping the colors will be exceptionally vibrant. The maples have begun to turn and are quite bright as of press time. The cooler days of fall are perfect for golf, hiking, mountain biking, and afternoon events.  The cold whisper in the air reminds us that ski season is just around the corner.

Guardsman Pass: If you are looking for a short drive (just 14 miles) from Park City, you can't beat Guardsman Pass. It can be traveled as a loop, or you can continue over the ridge to Brighton & Solitude or into Midway via Wasatch Mountain State Park. The road surface is newly paved, and though 4 WD is recommended, guardrails have been added making it easy to drive in most vehicles. Take SR-224 to Deer Valley Drive, and turn east to continue on to the roundabout. Exit on Marsac Avenue, and continue up Ontario Canyon to Guardsman Pass, which is a sharp left turn once you reach The Montage Hotel.  The road is quite narrow; drivers should be alert!  

Alpine Scenic Loop: There are not many places more beautiful in the fall than the Alpine Loop Scenic Road in northern Utah. This 20 mile drive winds through aspen groves and rugged Alpine canyons, offering outstanding views of Mount Timpanogos. The route follows Utah Highway 92 up American Fork Canyon and then continues through Uinta National Forest into Provo Canyon on U.S. 189. Timpanogos Cave National Monument and Robert Redford's Sundance are located along the route. Entirely paved, the Alpine Loop is open from approximately late May to late October. Snow closes part of the road the rest of the year. Not recommended for vehicles more than 30 feet long.

Mirror Lake Highway: The Mirror Lake Scenic Byway is one of the highest roads in the state of Utah, cresting at 10,687 feet at Bald Mountain Pass. The route winds its way from farmland to forested valleys and higher to pristine lakes overflowing with fish. The byway will take you by the headwaters of the Provo, Weber, Duchesne, and Bear rivers, as well as countless aspen groves with outstanding fall colors. 
Farm Trail (easy): Great for the entire family, this easy paved trail takes you through Park City's historic McPolin Barn off of Highway 224. The path stretches for several miles, so you can go as far as you would like while enjoying the mountain aspens, the postcard-worthy McLeod Creek, and a meadow of grazing horses. Make it a morning adventure or after-lunch stroll. It's a picturesque payoff that doesn't require any hiking expertise. View the whole trail network online. As it gets closer to Halloween, look for the display of scarecrows along the fence line.

Round Valley Trail System (easy-moderate):  Round Valley trail system sits on nearly 700 acres of open space, hovering at about 6,500 feet, making it a popular hiking spot in early spring and late fall. The 30 miles of trails, which include both double and single tracks, can be accessed from several trail-heads, including Quinn's Junction and Old Ranch Road. Check out a map of the entire trail system.

Silver Lake Trail (more strenuous):  Take Park City's free bus service to Deer Valley Resort's Silver Lake Lodge to start the trail. From here the trail winds its way up Bald Mountain climbing 1,300 feet in a two-mile stretch. The hike leads you to spectacular views of fall foliage, the Jordanelle Reservoir and the Uinta Mountains. From the top, you can descend the Ontario Canyon Trail, which slowly winds down the mountain, ending back at Silver Lake Lodge. View Deer Valley staff's trail description

Fantasy Ridge (strenuous): This six-mile trail winds through aspen groves and across a ridge-line to Canyons Resort's highest peak at 9,900 feet. The pay-off? 1,890 feet of elevation gain with panoramic views of both Park City and the Uinta Mountains. View all of Canyon's hiking trails.
