Cozied up in the shadows of Utah's picturesque Mt. Timpanogos, Sundance Resort dubs itself as a retreat full of artistic experimentation, thanks to a number of art and nature programs and the legendary Sundance Film Festival. In addition to the allure of its art programs, almost any skier or snowboarder can identify with the artistry of carving pencil-thin turns into the canvas of a freshly powdered ski run. This winter, Sundance Resort is giving you a good reason to strap on your gear and put that creativity to use.

From now through Oct. 31, book a 2012/2013 winter visit and receive 30 percent off all lodging. Sundance will throw in two complimentary all-day ski passes at this low-key resort for every night you stay at a Sundance property.

Blackout dates are limited to the Christmas and New Year holidays (Dec. 20 – Jan. 1) and the Sundance Film Festival (Jan. 17-27). All other dates between their Dec. 7 opening and Apr. 7 closing are fair game.

Plus, with the addition of a new chairlift running this season, skiers and snowboarders will have faster car-to-mountain access from the upper parking lot, shuttling riders to the top of Maverick trail and connecting with numerous intermediate runs, including the terrain park.
