Sundance Mountain Resort – This snowcapped ski resort is a little slice of heaven on a cozy Valentine’s weekend. The land was once prime real estate to be filled with fancy hotels and condominiums, but when actor Robert Redford decided to purchase the land in 1969, he refused to fill the immense canyon with cookie cutter resorts. Instead, he extended on the existing ski resort built by the family that had originally homesteaded the area. In 1981 the Sundance institute was founded, and it became an area of inspiration where many actors, writers, and other artists have come for serenity and perspective. This Valentine’s Day you can enjoy the Sundance Mountain Resort and take advantage of the Koko Package which comes with your very own private cottage set in the mountains, delicious breakfast each day, a three course dinner for two in the award winning Foundry Grill, and an hour long couples massage. It is a beautiful way to celebrate a day of love.
