GATEWAY CANYONS RESORT
This year's M2D finish is at the Gateway Community Center. If you are planning on staying at Gateway Canyons Resort, we recommend booking right away as availability this year is extremely limited, reserve your room today at 866-671-4733.

CAMPING
The Gateway Community Center is surrounded by BLM Land. Camping options are abundant, though transportation to campgrounds is required. We are working on locking in a group campground for the evening of the race. In the meantime, click to learn about camping opportunities in Gateway and in Telluride.
