From exclusive workouts and parties to complimentary High West Whiskey tastings, Chase Sapphire cardmembers received VIP treatment at the 2019 Sundance Film Festival. Below is a behind the scenes look at how one cardmember spent her day at the annual gathering:
8:30 A.M. Got my zen on at a yoga session at Chase Sapphire on Main, instructed by travel blogger and yoga teacher, Lesley Murphy. Namaste!
9:30 A.M. After an amazing sweat session, I kicked back on the comfy couches at Chase Sapphire on Main with a refreshing juice from local health food café Land Juicery and a coffee from the in-house café.
11 A.M. I roamed around Chase Sapphire on Main and it did not disappoint! There was an amazing celebrity cooking demo and free bites during the Taste of Sapphire event, which highlights signature dishes from featured Sapphire Six Park City restaurants across the country. I even purchased an exclusive Love Your Melon beanie at the pop-up shop—always important to bundle up in style at the festival!
2 P.M. Hopped over to Deer Valley Ski resort for an afternoon of skiing. (Crushed it on the bunny slopes, by the way!) After a couple runs down the famous terrain, I skied over to the Veuve Cliquot and Sapphire tasting event at the Deer Valley Ski. Brad Leone, Video Host, Bon Appétit, shucked oysters for the cardmembers and talked through his favorite champagne pairing hors d'oeuvres.
5 P.M. After a few glasses of bubbly, I headed back down the mountain for a movie screening at the famous Egyptian Theater. The audience was packed, but I grabbed tickets earlier that morning from the exclusive Chase Sapphire lines at the Box Office located at The Gateway.
7 P.M. Dinner and a show? Yes, please! I indulged in some rustic Italian food at local hot spot, Grappa. Thankfully I was able to snag this coveted reservation earlier in the day at Chase Sapphire on Main at the Bon Appétit Dining Concierge.
9 P.M. I capped off the night at the exclusive cardmember reception at High West Distillery, followed by dancing and enjoying craft cocktails at the Premiere Party at Chase Sapphire on Main. I folded into bed with a full belly and somewhat achy feet, but it was worth it!
