Number of runs » 8

Difficulty rating » Intermediate to advanced

Why try it » Only way to reach Sundance’s steepest terrain

The ride » After making the trip up or down Provo Canyon to Robert Redford’s resort, Arrowhead is a mid-mountain lift reached by starting on Ray’s Lift at the bottom. Get off at the Midway unloading station, then take Diamond Back, a cross between a cat track and a run, down to the base of Arrowhead, which climbs to the top of the ridge. There are spectacular views from there of Mount Timpanogos, Provo Canyon and the southern Wasatch Mountains. Bearclaw’s Cabin is right there, too, providing warmth and refreshment.

Runs to try

Bear Claw » The gentlest descent back to the loading zone, this intermediate run goes from a sweeping curve at the top into a broad, mild slope appealing to beginners, who also benefit from "slow skiing" zones.

Bishop’s Bowl » Wide open from top to bottom, this bowl has plenty of steep pitches that are fun for advanced skiers and boarders, especially on powder days.

Junior’s » Quite a ways down Amy’s Ridge, an intermediate traverse but one that’s tricky when bumpy, this expert run curls off to the left, offering a variety of fall lines and, usually, a raft of big moguls.
