Green Initiatives

At Gateway, nature and the great outdoors are at the core of everything we do.

When creating the resort, we understood the importance of preserving and protecting the local landscapes and wildlife habitats around the small community of Gateway, Colorado. By confining commercial and residential development to an area already impacted by humans, Gateway Canyons makes minimal impact on existing wildlife habitats and preserves precious open space outside the Gateway community.

At each of our restaurants, we use as much local produce as possible, supporting our nearby farming families and, at the same time, our local economy and agricultural movements. We also serve regional Colorado wines, which provide our guests a true taste of Western Colorado’s celebrated wine industry.

Gateway Canyons is also committed to energy conservation. All of its adobe style buildings have been constructed to utilize a variety of alternative and sustainable energy sources. Both the Kiva Lodge and the Palisade Event Center employ geothermal heating and cooling as well as solar water heating techniques. In our pool, hot tub and spa, we employ solar water heating and a non-chemical saline purification water system.
