As part of Gateway Canyons Resort’s new explorer’s program, Driven Experiences, guests will get behind the wheel of a Porsche 911 Carrera Coupe, Bentley Continental, Mercedes-Benz SL550 Roadster, or Corvette ZR1 Coupe and explore the surrounding canyons and desert. The program also includes off-road driving adventures in a Pro-Baja racing truck with professional instruction, flyover tours of the Moab desert and Palisade rock formations in a private aircraft, and a behind-the-scenes trip to the Gateway Auto Museum, which features the private car collection of John Hendricks, founder of Gateway Canyons Resort and the Discovery Channel. Cars are priced from $400 a day and can be reserved in shorter increments upon request.
Priority reservations for the Driven Experiences program are given to guests of the resort’s new 875- to 2,075-square-foot Palisade Casitas ($679 to $1,699 per night), each of which has a private outdoor patio, fire pit, and views of the Palisade rock formation. Accommodations include meals, transportation to and from the airport, and a personal butler, who can arrange reservations for a private poolside cabana, in-room dining and spa services, and more.
