Sundance Ski Resort

The ski area opened as Timp Haven in 1944 with a rope tow. It was run by the Ray Stewart family for over twenty years. Chairlifts were added in the 1960s. Redford presumably acquired the site because his first wife, Lola Van Wagenen, was from Utah, and because the couple had built a home in the area five years earlier.

Solitude Mountain Resort

Solitude was first developed for skiing by Moab, Utah uranium tycoon Robert M. Barrett. He started construction at Solitude in 1956, having bought all the land in Big Cottonwood Canyon, the next canyon over from Alta. The resort opened for business one year later, and passed through ownership changes until it was acquired by a business group led by Gary DeSeelhorst in 1977. DeSeelhorst became the resort's sole owner in 1986 and implemented an aggressive renovation project, including the 1989 construction of Utah's first express quad chairlift, Eagle Express. Accommodations upgrades in this period included the construction of the Creekside lodge in 1995.

Snowbasin Ski Resort

Snowbasin is one of the oldest continuously operating ski areas in the United States. Following the end of World War I and the Great Depression, numerous small ski resorts were developed in Utah's snow-packed mountains, and Weber County wanted one of their own. They decided to redevelop the area in and around Wheeler Basin, a deteriorated watershed area that had been overgrazed and subjected to aggressive timber-harvesting.
