I would attend more Sundance events except that nearly every time, it's a major
blizzard getting down the canyon from Park City. Why not have Sundance in March
or April when he weather is more cooperative? Jan. is already prime time for
skiers, but the resorts don't get the business because the town is crowded for
the film fest. If Sundance were held in the spring or even the fall, it would
extend the resorts' season longer, and it would be more pleasant weather-wise.
But it's not worth risking your life on an unplowed freeway with dozens of cars
sliding off the road, just to attend a movie or walk around Main St.
It was years of seeing ugly development in Park City, Utah that made me see what
a gem Ouray Colorado was.
Sundance is a great experience. I've lived in the Park City area for a few
years now, and it's really a fun time for everyone. You get to meet people from
all over and be part of something that you couldn't experience anywhere else.
The excitement of Sundance is in the directors for whom it's their first film at
the festival, and they are so happy to be there. It's a truly unique
experience, and it's wonderful to hear that things are looking up this year.
And, yes, even for a political middle-of-the-road LDS individual such as myself
it's a good time.
I'm thinking the locals who are filling the gapswould spend their money
somewhere else in the stateanyway so might not be adding a whole lot. Just
That's right, Liberal Larry. At least for a month out of the year, I have people
I can hang out with in Utah.
Thank heaven for all of those urban, liberal, elites, who come to Utah and spend
their hard earned cash, on food, accommodations, movies etc.. We owe our
progressive, environmentalist, Mr. Redford a huge "thanks".
