Road Scholar
Program #8770RJ
7 Days | 6 Nights
ACTIVITY LEVEL: Challenging
EasyFor people looking to exercise their minds more than their bodies. There’s minimal walking and not too many stairs.
ModerateThese programs get you on your feet and include activities such as walking up to a mile in a day through a city and standing in a museum for a few hours.
ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.
Moderately ChallengingFor hardy explorers who enjoy a good physical challenge, spending most of their days on the go.
ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding — and rewarding — programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.
Elevation Note
Elevations 7,000 to 10,000 feet.

Equipment Requirements
Personal ski equipment welcome. Rentals available for added cost. You can rent Alpine or Nordic ski packages at Sundance on our first morning. Downhill prices range from $25 for a basic package to $55 for high performance skis per day. Cross-country prices are around $18 per day. We encourage you to rent them for the weekly rate to save money from daily rental since you will be using them for five days. Reservations are not necessary but if desired, you can call the Nordic Rental Center at (801) 223-4170 or the Alpine Rental Center at (801) 223-4121 Both Alpine and Nordic rental shops will store your skis free each night if you rent from them. Or, if using your own skis, they only charge around $5 per night for overnight storage.
