Area Info

The Southern Utah climate features bright sunshine, small annual precipitation, clean air and a wide daily temperature range. The St. George area is known for it’s many golf courses and mild winters however it is quickly becoming a hot spot for its diverse selection of outdoor activities. Cycling has taken hold in this once sleepy retirement community and has now become a vital form of tourism as can be seen by the many road races, centuries, gran fondos, mountain bike races, and triathlons. Outside of cycling there is also hiking, climbing, golfing, and swimming. Top off your vacation with a spa treatment at one of the many spas or a quick drive to nearby Las Vegas. This is a great event to bring the whole family!
