Sundance Film Festival Attendance Skyrockets After Online Event

Park City Chamber of Commerce officials said that the 40,000 regular visitors the Sundance Film Festival would draw were made back by visitors flocking to resorts for skiing and snowboarding this year. However, the festival itself found its own success–despite the lack of a physical event. The secret? Online attendance.

Sundance Institute officials say that attendance was estimated at over 600,000 for the virtual event over the course of 7 days–a 168% increase in viewership from last year. Revenue for this event is estimated at over $170 million.

Skiing is low risk during COVID. Think Utah!

The team at UtahState.com in Layton Utah has the best deals on Utah ski packages. And during COVID everyone is looking for safe ways to have fun during COVID. Utah’s ski resorts have taken special safety measures to ensure that all skiers and snowboarders can still enjoy shredding the slopes.

According to the National Ski Areas Association, ski areas including Utah ski resorts, offer many advantages for people looking for low-risk recreation. These include:


● Space. Ski areas provide hundreds of acres of space. Utah ski resort operators monitor traffic flow and volume.

● Natural outdoor environment. Outdoor activities like skiing and snowboarding are generally considered safer than indoor activities when it comes to the spread of COVID virus.

● Standard gear. Face coverings, goggles, mittens, and other ski gear provide maximum protection for skiers and snowboarders.

● Touchless transactions.  Utah ski resorts have reduced contact between guests and employees by using touchless methods of payment and access.

Of course, keeping skiers and snowboarders safe on Utah’s slopes is everyone’s responsibility. For great deals on Utah ski packages or discount on ski lift tickets, contact UtahState.com at 801-544-1800 or email [email protected]
