Gateway, Colorado (October 2007) – This holiday season Gateway Canyons Resort is cooking up a traditional Thanksgiving feast with a Southwestern flair. Tucked away in the heart of red rock canyon country in western Colorado, the Thanksgiving Getaway package is $119 per person based on double occupancy and includes three nights accommodation in the Dolores River Inn (with option to upgrade to Kiva Lodge accomodations starting at $195 per person based on double occupancy) and Thanksgiving feast at Paradox Grille on Thursday, November 22nd.

            During the day guests can tour John Brown Canyon and take in the sights of the tall red rock canyon walls, cottonwood trees and vivid blue sky via Jeep, ATV or Pinzgauer, a high mobility all terrain utility vehicle. Or take to the trails by horseback from the Summit School Riding Ranch. The Adventure Concierge Team is available to arrange for mountain bike and hiking excursions.

            Gateway Canyons Resort is the vision of John S. Hendricks, founder and chairman of Discovery Communications.  A one-hour southwesterly drive from Grand Junction on Colorado Scenic and Historic Byway 141, Gateway Canyons Resort is located in the heart of red rock canyon country of Western Colorado.  Opened in 2005, the resort has been designed to fulfill the three fundamental experiences promised to each guest: “explore. discover. breathe.”  Just steps from the resort, guests can experience a wide range of outdoor activities, from mountain and rock climbing, to river sports, hiking, mountain biking, horseback riding, auto touring and more.  The resort’s Adventure Concierge Team is on hand to bring guests in touch with the outdoor experiences that suit them best.

            Currently in Phase I of development, Gateway Canyons offers accomodations in the Kiva Lodge, Dolores River Inn and the Canyon Casitas. The Outpost General Store, Outpost Outfitters, The Paradox Grille and The Gateway Colorado Auto Museum are all currently open. Phase II of the resort development, scheduled for completion in 2010, will introduce a Tag Gaylean designed world-class spa, a Jim Engh designed 18-hole championship golf course, The Mission Bell Events Center and Pavilion (soon to be Western Colorado’s premiere destination events center), and The Palisade Academy, furthering Mr. Hendrick’s personal passion to develop enriching, lifelong learning programs. The Palisade Academy will unite experts in a range of disciplines and resort guests in engaging classroom presentations and field trips on various subjects. For more information, visit
