Well it’s a wrap on Sundance (atleast for the main attraction which is always the opening weekend….) and we are happy to report it is business as usual on the snowy ski slopes of Part City. Once a shabby mining town where they had to import women for the winter, they have now figured out a way to bring in half of Hollywood, and one third of New York (read: Manhattan). In reviewing our weekend and photos from our trust truffle hunters, friends, and favorite Instagram accounts (soon to be challenged by Pheed) we have collected the most meaningful (read: VIP) moments of the weekend.
Getting there …
Getting there is not really half the battle but some of us who are particularly bad at waking up in the morning can find even a chauffeur-ed lift or chartered craft too much to ask of our compliance. Here are some cute pics from those who made it to the dance on time…

This week BFA NYC (as it’s known) has photogs spread across the globe in Paris for Couture week, in DC for the inauguration and Park City for Sundance. Follow @BFA_NYC to see more pics.

Nur Khan snapped this little gem outside the plane he road in on with fellow New York nightlife guru Noah Tepperberg. Nur is in town to hosts a series of 7 parties based around competing film screenings in Sundance headlined as “Nur Khan Presents” while Noah is in town for his annual Tao pop-up club held in the town ski lift garage.

This cute pic of Main Street in Park City was snapped by Craig Clemens, an Angeleno turned New Yorker (for now).
<<< The BURTON Experience >>>
Utilizing the hashtag #BurtonxSundance on instagram and twitter, the chic snowboard company took over the slopes with their trademark red tents to provide a free store to suit-up and an escape to apres…. a cocktail party was held at the nearby Pig Pen saloon on the last day. Pics via Barron Hilton who was in Sundance with older sis Paris Hilton (and their perspective significants: River Viiperi and Vanessa Dubasso) who showed him how to dance.
