Ahhh, Sundance.

The last of my first day on skis. The land of Bobby Redford. The land of absurd views.

And, now, the land of creative coronavirus dining.

Takeout
Running a restaurant right now is tough, to be sure. I suppose it gets a little easier with that restaurant is part of something bigger rather than reliant wholly up on its own merits, but it’s not an easy time for anyone. So it’s been great to see that takeout has been something that can be done safely to keep at least some money coming in the door.

Now, combine that with the creativity that is in rich abundance these days, and you might have something like this.

A great twist on takeout, sprinkle in a bit of local celebrity…

…and you’ve got a great idea to keep a little money coming in and give your fans a new way to experience the food you’re still able to chef up during a crazy time.

Give Them a Chance
I feel like I’ve said some variation of this a dozen times since the coronavirus arrived, but people still love your resort. They still wish they could ski and stay and play and hike and bike.

The stuff they’re used to making memories around isn’t available.

But now is a great time to take that affinity for your brand, combine it with some creativity, and give them new ways to fall deeper in love with your resort. Like Sundance did.
