The Main Points of Distinction
Surrounded by some of the most spectacular hiking options in North America, including Snow Canyon State Park—with its nearly 7,000 acres of red rock canyons and cliffs, lava caves and two volcanic cones—the main point of distinction at Red Mountain Resort is the environment.

The heart of Red Mountain’s outdoor activities is its daily morning hiking program, with trails beginning right outside their door. Numerous hiking opportunities are led by specialized guides who are enthusiastically committed to giving guests the hiking experience of a lifetime. The resort also offers group and privately guided hikes in the legendary Zion National Park.

Types of Programs Offered—Duration and Cost
Red Mountain offers a wide array of activities from guided National Park trips to canyoneering, personal training to Resting Metabolic Analysis. One of the more popular programs is the Red Mountain Essential Retreat, which is available for any length of stay starting at $365 pp, per night. The retreat includes accommodation, guided hikes, fitness classes, a variety of healthy living sessions and events, as well as cooking demos, plus the use of many of the resort’s amenities.

What Types of Guests Does It Cater to and What Clients Would Feel Most Comfortable at the Property
The average age of guests at Red Mountain Resort is 45, and most will look to be active and outdoors. However, the resort’s extensive list of programming does attract guests from 18 and those well into the 70s. They also welcome many solo travelers, and girlfriends’ getaway groups.
