~ Active Retreat Inspires Guests to Disconnect to Reconnect ~
St. George, UTAH, February 16, 2011 – It’s time to put down the blackberry, turn off the television, and step away from the computer. With today’s never ending influx of information and technology, it often seems impossible to unplug, even just for a few minutes. That’s why this year, Red Mountain challenges travelers to surrender their electronics and take some time to unplug, relax, and reconnect alongside Utah’s red rock bluffs.
“We often aren’t cognizant of how reliant we have become on digital devices and technology,” says Tracey Welsh, General Manager, “Red Mountain acknowledges how important it is for guests to take the time to remove themselves from the outside world to gain new perspective and motivation.”
From March 1 through May 27, 2012, guests who book the Red Mountain Digital Detox Spring Deal* can recharge everything but their electronics. From $230 per person, the deal offers the ideal mix of adventure and relaxation, guaranteed to take guests’ minds off of their emails and television shows. With this exclusive offer, travelers who purchase an Essential Retreat Package receive a complimentary specialty hike and a 50-minute soothing Sagestone Customized Massage. Specialty hikes include, the Native American Rock Art Walk, Sand Cove Slick Rock Hike, and Tuacahn Saddle Hike.
Guests can supplement the Digital Detox Spring Deal with the following offerings:
• Coping Successfully With Relentless Stress Add-on ($450 per person) – In this three day retreat, led by Andrea Hanson, Certified Energy Health Practitioner, guests combat the effects of stress overload perpetuated by the digital age through hiking, yoga, and meditation.

Participants ride through the Bear Claw Poppy Trail complex, an off-road, single-track mountain biking area and a favorite among biking enthusiasts, offering riders a mix of both technical and aerobic challenges.
• Rappelling * ($159 per person) – Nothing beats the adrenaline rush of taking those first few steps backward off a cliff!
