Directions to Zion Ponderosa – New Google Earth Tool

Thursday, April 11th, 2013

A Utah-based developer/programmer has come up with an exciting new way to use Google Earth to identify information and locations of attractions. We have been the beneficiary of some his efforts.   You can learn how to get to Zion Ponderosa from Salt Lake City or from Los Angeles / Las Vegas by using this simple, but helpful tool.  Give it a try!

Ragnar Trail Relay Event – Coming This Month!

Monday, April 8th, 2013

Our big Ragnar Trail Relay Running Event is just around the corner.  April 26-27 will see our cabins filled and the hillsides covered with tents.  Read more here.  If you haven’t registered yet, click here!

Ragnar Trail Relay Running Event

A runner cruises past a nearby canyon on the Ragnar Trail Relay course at Zion Ponderosa Ranch Resort.

This is a relay race so when competitors are not running they will be enjoying the company of many others around campfires, and along the course.    This will be the largest event held at Zion Ponderosa and the resort is reserved on this weekend for competitors.

However, if running is not your game, but hiking, or outdoor adventure is more to your liking, then Zion Ponderosa is ready to host you too. April and May are perfect times to get away and experience the wonders of Zion National Park, and nearby Bryce Canyon National Park.

Remember that since we border Zion National Park, you can walk from the resort to the overlooks at Cable Mountain or Observation Point.  Don’t miss out on an opportunity to experience Zion National Park from the Top!
