I spent several days in Eden, Utah with over 20 ski buddies from my ski club. We skied mainly Powder Mt. and Snowbasin. One day was left free for exploring other ski areas. Only one other club member (Kurt) accompanied me to Sundance. I could not persuade the others. They probably thought Sundance is just a small beginner ski area. This video should disprove that notion.
Sundance is bigger and more challenging than most people think. In fact, this is a powder skier's paradise. Most of the terrain around Bishop Bowl, Redfinger, Grizzly Bowl and Tombstone is ungroomed.
Next to the Arrowhead lift, the main run (Bear Claw) is groomed, but most of the black runs that feed into it from the ridge are ungroomed.
And on the easier, front side, where all the green runs are located, there are also 4 exciting advanced black diamond runs: Cotton Mouth, the Wall, Top Gun, and Marmott Gulch.
Best of all, there are very few powder skiers to compete with, because most advanced skiers just visiting Utah don't give Sundance serious consideration. They'll never know what they are missing. Just compare the clusters of skiers on the easier side of the mountain with the one or two solitary skiers/boarders spotted in the ungroomed terrain!
