Paws Up + Gateway Canyon // October 2020

Paws Up

  • Fly into Missoula, MO (DL via SLC from MSP, or UA via DEN or AA via DFW)
  • This is an outdoor mega resort!  Great for being outdoors, activities, hiking, biking, etc. Very COVID friendly as there were really no crowds at all even though the resort was at capacity.
  • 2 restaurants on site plus a dining pavilion at each campsite – guests generally do breakfast at camp and lunch.  Dinner can be served at camp or at the main area.  If you are camping, you call a shuttle.
  • Luxury Glamping tents complete with on suite bathroom plus a number of Wilderness homes which have 1-3 bedrooms.
  • All camping sites have about 6 tents so you could reserve an entire camp group if you had a family traveling.  Each site has a butler and chef.
  • Best sites in my opinion – Cliffside Camp, Pinnacle Camp, River Camp (winner), and Creekside Camp – 4 Sites about a 5 minute walk to each.  Just beautiful sitting right on the river, check out the pictures.
  • 37,000 acres of land
  • With Wilderness homes, you get your own Lexus that is waiting for you at the airport.  During COVID, they are having everyone assigned to a Lexus and driving themselves 45 minutes to the resort.  The Wilderness homes get to keep their car while they are there.  The people glamping will not get cars, but can call for a pick up any time of the day.
  • All activities start from the activities center.

Gateway Canyon

  • Fly into Grand Junction
  • This is a 72 suite resort.  Each room can be access from outside so there are no big, tall buildings.  Very COVID friendly, restaurants are at 50% and room service is available. Only 2 restaurants on property.
  • They have regular hotel rooms or casitas which include your own living room, outdoor patio or balcony.  Just beautiful rooms!
  • Tons of activities, hiking, biking, ATV’s, UTV’s, etc. lots to do outside here. All activities take off from the activities center.
  • Airport transportation can be made directly with the hotel.  It is about an hour and 10 minutes to this resort.  Breathtaking drive!

These two resorts were reviewed and considered for a COVID program.  With or without COVID concerns, both of these places made us feel very safe and we were never in a crowd.  You can sell these with confidence!
