20 Years of Adventure

Celebrating our 20th anniversary at red mountain resort

Hiking: Hit the trail

Our guests have hiked over a million miles in the past 20 years in Snow Canyon alone.  No matter what level of hiking you choose, you can count on our guides to make a hike fun, relaxed and informational. Sure, 20 years ago we didn’t stop for a selfies, but our guides have always known where to capture the most epic shots.

Spa Treatment: Red Mountain Revitalizer

Over the last 20 years our treatment menu as Sagestone Spa & Salon has grown. But one has remained popular with almost all our guests — the Red Mountain Revitalizer. This signature 75-minute treatment starts with a skin softening prickly pear sugar scrub. Then 7 showerheads worth of warm water cascades down to melt away stress as you experience the relaxation of a full body massage. A restorative scalp and facial massage complete this ultimate body treatment to nurture, relax and renew you.

With Chef Chad Luethje’s consciously planned entrée portions, dessert is always an option. Throughout the years our baker, Lynnette Beck, has poured love into her creations, especially her always in demand chocolate chip cookies. Here is the recipe to make them at home.

Fitness Class: Drums Alive®

This unforgettable fitness class has a history that originated out of necessity. Carrie Ekins, the originator of the program, suffered a devastating hip injury. To keep moving and have fun, she began to drum on boxes, and unexpectedly experienced the euphoria that drumming produces, both aerobically and mentally.

Not only will you have a blast in our Drums Alive® class, the rhythmic patterns helps the brain generate enhanced Alpha waves that synchronize the hemispheres, improving your neurological well being – making this can’t-miss class, a complete mind/body experience.

Zion National Park

Our guides have led thousands of guests through Utah’s first National Park. No matter what the season, Zion is a breathtaking testament to the power of Mother Nature. Whether you have conquered Walters Wiggles to ascend the towering heights of Angels Landing, or waded along the cool waters of the Virgin Narrows, a trip to Zion holds something new every time.

The Labyrinth at Red Mountain

A group of our hiking guides volunteered to place each stone that lines the path of the spiral. The stones are Arizona River rock, smoothed by eons of running water. The stones represent water and its cleansing energy. The spiral shape of the labyrinth is a powerful symbol in Native American culture, symbolizing evolution, the never-ending cycle of growth, change, and eternal life.
