Sundance 2016 is just around the corner. If you’re planning on making the journey to Park City, UT at the end of this month, we’re here to help you get the most out of your experience and explore more than just the movies!
See as many films as possible: It wouldn’t be fair to talk about Sundance without talking about all of the films on the schedule. It goes without saying, if you’re planning on going to Sundance, it’s recommended that you pack as many screenings into your schedule as possible. Buy tickets in advance when you can and plan out your schedule beforehand. If you’re unable to get tickets in advance, don’t fret. There are always opportunities to wait on line for a waitlisted ticket or even scalp tickets at face value outside the theatre.
Hit the slopes: Park City is a fantastic ski and snowboard destination. Sundance occurs during peak ski season and if you arrive a day or early or are planning on leaving a day later, hitting the slopes is an amazing way to get better acquainted with the area, witness the beautiful mountain scenery and get a quick workout in before or after sitting in movie theaters all week! Park City and Deer Valley are two of the best mountains in the area; Research both mountains and reserve lift tickets in advance!
Eat good food: With 10 days of festivities, eating good food and staying fueled is a necessity. Park City is home to a long list of fantastic restaurants and eateries. Just make sure to make reservations in advance because the town will be flooded with festival goers just like you and you don’t want to waste any time waiting for a table.
