The premier powder, Winter Olympics remains, and cascading mountain backdrop have always made Park City, Utah a hot travel destination. But there has been something in the works over the last 30 years that has helped elevate Park City to one of the most sought after vacation spots in the country, the Sundance Film Festival.

Since 1985, Park City has been bringing innovative independent filmmakers to light, exposing only the best and most groundbreaking films, directors and actors in the industry. The 10 day festival brings over 40,000 people to Park City, Salt Lake City, Ogden, and, of course, Sundance. In 15 local theaters, the Sundance Film Festival shows almost 200 hand-picked films that range from shocking documentaries to heart-warming comedies and give up-and-coming filmmakers their chance to shine.

With an average population of only 8,000 people, Park City arms itself each year for the 40,000+ visitors that will fill the streets for a week and a half each January. Main Street is constantly filled with filmmakers, celebrities and excited visitors.

Sundance isn’t just about films, it’s also an opportunity for businesses and brands to mingle and promote. Red carpet events and cocktail parties dominate Main Street during the festival. Tents filled with innovators and creators ready to share their stuff lines the streets and Park City becomes something between an innovative convention and giant party.

The two weeks that the Sundance Film Festival runs in Park City have become prized weeks at local resorts. Timeshares during Sundance have become valuable vacation homes over the years as the festival has grown to garner international recognition. Lucky for you, there are plenty of Park City timeshare resorts that Premier Timeshare Resale represents.

Sundance Survival Tips: Park City timeshare resale is a factor

Sundance Film Festival is about to start in Park City, Utah. Every year, the entire city of Los Angeles (and then some) flocks to the mountains to see new, independent, edgy, and experimental films. Here are five secrets to surviving Sundance if you’re one of those adventurous or start-chasing folk who relish winter snow, cold temperatures, and vibrant films in Park City, Utah.

 

1-      Day One: Drink a lot of water. Seriously, a LOT. Light migraines, sinus headaches, panting, dizziness, nausea, and cold sweats aren’t uncommon for being at high altitude. The air pressure is lower, the air is thinner, and your body loses water like whoa. Especially if you’re planning on participating in the party, HYDRATE to avoid feeling the worst ever the next day. 7,500 feet above sea level isn’t kind to imbibers of copious amounts of alcohol.

 

2-      Don’t bother with taxis: Walk. Park City is small. Park City is walkable, and so many people crowd the small streets with vehicles that it’s really not worth it. But be sure to drink water, or you’ll find yourself huffing and puffing, out of breath, walking uphill from venue to venue.

 

3-      Don’t get all stressed out about the parties. If you haven’t heard, the nightly parties at Sundance are real hard to get into. Even the fancy, rich, and important have to stand in line sometimes. They aren’t worth it—and you’ll likely have more fun in your hot tub back at your hotel with a bottle of hot mulled wine. Just drink lots of water; I’m getting woozy and dehydrated just thinking about it.

 

4-      Sundance is TWO weekends long. Sundance’s fervor seems to drop off after about Wednesday after the first weekend, and many people prefer the more low-key, less crowded second-weekend of the festival.

 

5-      Book Early: Save $$$ Better yet, if you have a Park City timeshare, book it up for Sundance week to save hundreds of dollars (a night!) on a hotel stay. But even with Park City timeshares, you have to book your Sundance reservation up to a year in advance to guarantee a spot, the demand is so high.

 

In fact, buying Park City timeshares resale can actually save you money. Buying more affordable properties like Park Hotel, Park Plaza, and Sweetwater Lift Lodge can actually be less than you’d spend on a hotel for one year, and then you have ongoing access. Talk to one of our agents today about what Park City timeshare resales we have listed, and buckle down and party up for Sundance Film Festival 2014!
