If you’re looking to fall into adventure, our Women’s Adventure Retreat is waiting for you. This jam-packed weeklong adventure is an opportunity to experience the best of Zion at one of the best times of year. Normally offered in the spring, we’ve decided to add another Women’s Adventure Retreat from October 4-10 to bring new seasonal elements to this exciting week of adventure. Zion Ponderosa’s southern location lends itself to a fall that peaks right around the time of our Women’s Adventure Retreat, and our elevation lends itself to the cooler temperatures that are perfect for adventuring. Imagine yourself on horseback, surrounded by fall foliage at its peak: crimson scrub oak leaves fluttering around you and crunching softly beneath your horse’s hooves. Or picture yourself taking an early morning hike across our 4,000-acre ranch on the eastern edge of Zion, surrounded by golden aspen on the higher hillsides.
Fall temperatures are mild during the day and cool off in the evening. The cooler temperatures are favorable to many of our adventure activities such as world-class canyoneering, hiking, ATV and Jeep touring, and zip lining. We’re not saying you won’t break a sweat during the fall Women’s Adventure Retreat, but the typical temperatures should add an element of comfort. Check out these great adventures in the line up:
– Scenic Helicopter Tour overlooking Zion National Park
– Guided canyoneering / rappelling experience into a slot canyon
– Jeep or side-by-side ATV tour through the ponderosa forest to scenic overlooks
– Guided ATV Riding (Guided)
– Climbing Wall (Top Roped)
– Horseback Riding (Guided)
– Paint Ball (Game)
– Rifle Shooting (Skill)
– Zip Line (Multiple Rides)
– Billiards / Foosball
– Horse Shoes / Ping Pong
– Miniature Golf
– Pool & Hot Tub
As always, you can flex your itinerary to skip an activity in favor of a soak in the hot tub or adding a deluxe spa treatment (for just $99) or simply to enjoy the many additional activities that Zion Ponderosa has to offer.
At the end of each adventure-filled day, take some time to enjoy a great meal as you bond with the other women in your group and take in the fantastic night skies. Fall is a perfect time for stargazing, and you may even catch a glimpse of the Milky Way, too!
