Santa to fly in by helicopter in Gateway

Daily Staff Report

‘Twas the night before Christmas, when Santa did appear – flown in on a helicopter, instead of by Rudolph and the reindeer.

Santa will arrive by helicopter at Gateway Canyons Resort, kicking off a fun-filled holiday celebration the entire family will enjoy, Christmas Eve..

Following his 11 a.m. arrival on Christmas Eve, old Saint Nick will spend the afternoon joyfully handing out a gift to each child and posing for photos in the Gateway Colorado Auto Museum, surrounded by an abundance of hot chocolate and cookies ready for festive holiday decorating. A complimentary child’s lunch at the Paradox Grill will also be offered, if accompanied by a paying adult.

In addition, guests staying at Gateway Canyons Resort between December 21-30 will receive gift vouchers, good for a complimentary stay with each night booked at the resort during this time. Vouchers can be used at the time of the stay or any time through December 30, 2012, noting some restrictions may apply.

Edging the Colorado/Utah border and cradled in the shadow of the Palisade rock formation, Gateway Canyons Resort is an adventure retreat that invites guests to experience a transformation amongst the inspirational beauty of the red rock canyons. With comfortable accommodations that offer breathtaking views, visitors reconnect with loved ones by creating new memories with seasonal activities offered through the on-site Adventure Center, wellness-focused treatments at The Spa, access to more than 100 years of automotive history at the Gateway Colorado Auto Museum, as well as a visit to The Stables, a first-class equestrian center set in the heart of Unaweep Canyon.
