Green & Chic | Sundance Resort, Provo, Utah

One of North America’s pioneers of eco-friendly hotels, Sundance Resort in was conceived with minimizing its negative imprint on the immediate environment, back in 1969 when land for the resort was purchased.

Sundance Resort, in North Fork Provo Canyon in Utah, is probably more famous for its owner – Hollywood former leading man and director, Robert Redford – who has been leading in his conservation and community-led endeavors since stepping away from Hollywood limelight some two decades ago.

This is the perfect venue for a rustic yet chic destination wedding or honeymoon anytime of the year. The atmosphere is romantic, and adventure options abound. Winter is perfect for skiing and snowboarding, and the rest of the year you can hike, bike, horseback ride, even kayak down the river. If you’re not the adventurous type, fret not. Relax at the spa or unleash your creative side at the art shack workshop. The restaurants offer 5-star dining and terrific wine list.

Sundance has several areas to hold a ceremony and reception. Its largest – Rehearsal Hall – accommodates 250 guests and has a great view of the pond.

Sundance Resort has a long standing history of Green policies, dating back to the property’s original purchase (1969).

Guests who stay at Sundance can participate in our linen re-use program, saving water, energy and waste. All Sundance rooms are cleaned using non-toxic cleaning supplies, and rooms are stocked with natural products from Sprout Out, as well as Sundance’s own organic soaps made in the Art Shack.

Both visitors and lodging guests get to participate in our resort-wide recycling program. Sundance Resort has its own glass works kiln. Glass bottles are not only recycled, but turned into decorative art and housewares, for use around the property. Sundance uses hybrid vehicles on property to promote the conservation of energy and lessening of polluting emissions.

Sundance Resort mountain staff implement ongoing mitigation projects each year aimed at restoring the mountain to its natural state by working to eliminate noxious weeds on the mountain, laying erosion blankets and restoring vegetation where seasonal land use has altered the terrain.
