Because we cater to families and groups throughout the year, we are
well aware of the need to offer diverse and abundant activities. Family
activities are part of the Zion Ponderosa way.
Zion Ponderosa has recently finished construction of a 40-foot high
climbing and rappelling wall. This wall is the biggest wall in Southern
Utah and has charted climbs for both the beginning and advanced climbers.
The wall is the perfect centerpiece for family fun. With over 20,000
square feet of indoor/outdoor climbing surface, our wall is the hot
spot both in winter and summer months.
Families will find that during their vacation at Zion Ponderosa the
will become closer. Our activities are exciting enough to bond both
parents and children alike. This bonding experience is very apparent
when families combine efforts to tackle the feat of rock climbing together.
After you train on the wall, you may want to go with our trained staff
to rappel a slot canyon.
Paintball Competitions Team up against each other and go for
the flag. Many families find unifying experiences in a simple game of
paintball, not to mention a lot of fun!
Group Hikes Zion Ponderosa shares seven miles of common fence and
breathtaking scenery with Zion National Park. We'll provide you with
direct access to many of Zion's world famous trailheads. Choose to hike
together to see the magnificent views of the Cable Mountain and Observation
Point trails or to experience the rugged adventure of Orderville Canyon
- a major tributary to the popular Zion Narrows. Zion Ponderosa provides
shuttle service to and from Zion Park trailheads for our guests.
