Zion Ponderosa Ranch Resort’s annual Women’s Adventure Retreat will take place May 3-9. This week-long outdoor experience will include “helicopter and Jeep tours, horseback riding, canyoneering, hiking and much, much more,” according to a press release from the resort.

In addition to guided activities guests will have access to property facilities including the mini golf course, basketball courts, climbing walls and the rifle range.

Lodging for the retreat will be in one of the resort’s high-end cabins where guests can choose from a lodge suite or deluxe lodge suite. The cabins are located in a gated community approximately 600 yards from the main lodge and feature private bedrooms with shared common spaces perfect for making new friends and sharing in the memories of your adventures.

Meals will feature specially created healthy fare with fresh, local ingredients (when available). The resort also offers a wine list and craft beer menu.

Don’t forget to book your massage at the on-site spa to ease your adventure-tired muscles.

The full package is valued at $3,000, Director of Marketing Mark Wade said, but if you book now you can enjoy a discount of 44 percent making it the perfect vacation getaway for you and your girlfriends.

“Last year we had women from as far away as Florida and New York,” Wade said. “They had a really great experience.”

Other amenities include spa services and, coming soon, single-track mountain biking trails as well as bike rentals right on property.

Because of its proximity to Zion – the resort butts up against the park’s boundary – guests can easily access popular vantage points, Cable Mountain and Observation Point by hiking 3 miles across the top of the mesa rather than making the steep trek from below.

Resort guests wishing to spend time in the national park are offered shuttle services that will take them to and pick them up from popular trailheads as well, Wade said.

Guest accommodations at the resort range from basic tent and recreational vehicle camping to large and luxurious cabins complete with jacuzzi tubs, Wade said.
