every day is green at sundance resort


Sundance Resort has a long standing history of Green policies, dating back to the property's original purchase (1969). Today, Sundance continues to update and implement new techniques and technologies, staying at the forefront of environmental stewardship.


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 Studio.


Both visitors and lodging guests get to participate in our resort-wide recycling program. Sundance recycles cardboard, cans, paper and plastic on-site. Because recycling glass in Utah presents its own set of challenges, 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.


Green Purchasing

All Sundance Resort departments purchase environmentally responsible products. The General Store purchases recycled cotton grocery bags, organic cotton t-shirts and housewares made from natural and recycled materials. Our restaurant and catering teams use organic produce and products, as well as chlorine free products such as paper cups and coffee filters.  Our lodging department’s in-room amenities feature Sprout Out. The Sprout Out collection showcases the Gilchrist & Soames Naturally Kind Formulations combined with certified organic extracts of rooibos, cardamom seed, yarrow and ginseng to gently care for skin and hair.


Recycled Glassworks
Because recycling glass in Utah presents its own set of challenges, Sundance Resort installed its own glass works kiln. Artists in Residence from Tlaquepaque, Mexico break down bottles, which are then transformed into decorative art and housewares, for use around the property.



Mountain Restoration

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.
