- $35 for the Sundance ZipTour for one ($50 value)
This wintry excursion sends people sailing past the Sundance mountainside on a 3,871-foot course billed as one of the country’s longest. Zip liners can get their adrenaline pumping by accelerating up to 65 miles per hour, or take a more leisurely pace, even stopping still at points to photograph their surroundings.
Arguably most famous for its annual film festival, Sundance Resort is about as far from Hollywood as you can get. The small ski resort is owned by Robert Redford, but the actor and director is committed to maintaining it as a quiet sanctuary for recreation and reflection. The area's impressive natural beauty inspires Sundance's focus on environmental conservation and artistic experimentation, which is also reflected in the rustic and luxurious accommodations, spa, and restaurants. And visitors seeking an adventurous way to enjoy the environs can ride any of five ziplines, which present them with scenic views of Mount Timpanagos as they reach speeds upwards of 60 miles per hour.
