Getaway Flight to Zion, Utah — August 25-27, 2017

 If you’ve never experienced Zion National Park, this would be a great time.  We plan to fly into St. George Utah (KSGU), rent a car, and drive into the park.  KSGU has a wide selection of rental car brands available and if you’d like to share a car with another party please let This email address is being protected from spambots.

The hotel we are reserving is the Cable Mountain Lodge.  Very comfortable digs indeed.  The park is in high season at this time and the hotel rates reflect this.  We urge you to make hotel reservations immediately in order to secure a room.  You can cancel it up to 72 hours before your stay.  There are plenty of sites to see as well as short and long hikes.  The scenery is absolutely gorgeous and the whole valley is breathtaking.

The “new” St. George Airport was opened in early 2011.  Most of us are familiar with the original airport closer to town that was on top of a butte.  This new airport had been in the planning for 20 years with the objectives of commercial expansion.  It has several scheduled airlines. Elevation is 2850’ with a 9300 x 150 runway.  The FBO on the field, “Above View Jet Center,” offers 100LL at $4.75.

The alternate airport to access Zion is in Kanab, Utah.  It is about the same distance to the park as from KSGU, but the rental cars and aviation services are limited which makes St. George the better choice.
