Zion National Park…only 45 minutes away!

Zion National Park, located in Southern Utah, is one of the most beautiful places on earth! The park is a short 45 minute drive from St. George, Utah. Zion National Park attracts over two million visitors each year who come to see the stunning scenery and diverse plants this park has to offer. At the park visitors can choose from a variety of activities from hiking the scenic trails or backpacking along steep cliffs. Others may choose rock climbing on the vividly colored rock formations or horseback riding down a trail with breathtaking views of magnificent sandstone mountains.

A prominent feature of Zion National Park is Zion Canyon, which was formed by the Virgin River. Along Zion Canyon you can see geological features which attract the most visitors including the Virgin River Narrows, Emerald Pools, Angels Landing, The Three Patriarchs, and Kolob Arch.

Skydive Zion when you come visit!

If skydiving is still on your “to do – someday” list then it may be time to finally take care of that goal.  We recommend Skydive Zion which is the only outfitter in all of southern Utah

 Skydive Zion is operated at the Hurricane Airport; perfectly located between St. George and Zion National Park.  Recently our Assistant General Manager, John, took the opportunity to plunge out of an airplane at 11,000 feet and found it to be an exhilarating experience.  After the necessary instruction, beginners must jump in tandem, which means the instructor is strapped to your back to ensure a safe decent back to the ground.

 Videos of your experience can be taken, set to music and available to take home before you leave!  Awesome!
