A Weekend at the Sundance Film Festival
This post is sponsored by Chase Sapphire. All opinions are my own.
In late January, I attended the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah for the first time. The idea of skiing fresh powder by day and escaping the cold to see a showcase of newly-released international, independent films with popcorn and soda by night was extremely appealing. So, when Chase Sapphire invited me to head out west for the weekend, I happily obliged.
Chase Sapphire is a presenting sponsor of the Sundance Film Festival and my Sapphire Reserve Card made it easy for a New Yorker like me to immediately gain access to the Chase Sapphire Lounge at Chase Sapphire on Main and private cast parties. The concierge service provided by Bon Appétit and available to Chase Sapphire card members was particularly helpful as most restaurants were pre-booked weeks in advance with little availability. In many cases Chase held tables for Sapphire card members and obtaining one of them was as simple as stopping by the concierge desk in the card member lounge. Chase Sapphire on Main served as my home base throughout the weekend and to be frank, it would have been much more difficult to navigate the festival without a Chase Sapphire card.
One event that stood out this past week was the Après Lounge at the Montage Deer Valley featuring a chef tasting and pairing with Veuve Cliquot and Chase Sapphire. They constructed a Yurt in the snow at the base of Deer Valley mountain and brought in Bon Appétit’s Brad Leone to cook up hors d’hoeuvres while Veuve Clicquot kept everyone’s champagne glasses full. While it was cold and snowy outside, the warm and cozy ambience inside kept Chase Sapphire card members smiling.
