Before El Niño Arrives

The weather forecast predicts snow in our future and we couldn't be more excited. Everytime we hear something mentioned about El Niño we get goosebumps but that doesn't mean you don't still have time to enjoy the best of what autumn in Utah has to offer.

Alpine Loop • You can start your colorful drive to Sundance if coming down from SLC by heading up American Fork Canyon, just 10 minutes off I-15. Start this 24-mile drive at the mouth of American Fork Canyon, drive past Timpanogos Cave and complete it on U.S. 189 in Provo Canyon just past the Sundance Ski Area. A couple of nice side trip will take you to Cascade Springs, a beautiful natural area with a boardwalk trail that can be spectacular this time of year.

Room with a View

There really isn't a best time of year in Sundance. It's all subjective as to what draws you to the area. Autumn in Utah and in particular along the Wasatch Front is a unique backdrop to many areas of our country. The Alpine Loop stretching through Sundance offers the deep reds and oranges of the oak trees as well as the bright gold and yellow from the quaking aspens. Fall in Utah is one of our more popular times of the year for guests to come and enjoy long weekends with an abundance of colors in every direction. It's a great time of year for hiking, biking and doing absolutely nothing. 

Stewart Mountain Lodging offers cabins in Sundance with some of the best views imaginable. Anytime of year from the decks of these retreats is a vacation in itself. Wake up to the fall colors in any of these homes and renew your love with Sundance all over again. Clockwise starting at the top left: Moon Shadow, Aspen Ridge, Ravens Wood and Lookout Point.
