For eleven days from 22nd January until 1st February fans of independent film making will be spoiled for choice during the Sundance Film Festival, founded in the eighties by legendary actor Robert Redford. A special highlight of this year's festival is the world premiere of 'What Happened, Miss Simone ?' a documentary film about the great singer's life. Away from the big screen, panel discussions with luminaries such as Robert Redford and George Lucas are on the schedule, as well as film related music events from artistes such as Christina Perri.

Meanwhile, on the slopes of the ski areas, skiers will be amazed at how quiet the ski runs and snowparks are, along with the on mountain restaurants and bars. After prodigious snowfalls since Christmas, the pistes and powder stashes are in perfect condition.
