Hidden Holiday Treasures: 25 Days of Giveaways at Park Hyatt Beaver Creek Resort and Spa

The spirit of giving is alive and well at Park Hyatt Beaver Creek Resort and Spa. The resort has holiday fever for its 25th anniversary, and it has begun giving away 25 fabulous gifts, one each day, between December 1 and Christmas Day. It’s Park Hyatt Beaver Creek’s little way of saying “thank you” to the guests and community at large that have made the renowned luxury Colorado mountain resort into a truly world-class destination over the last quarter century.

But the resort isn’t just handing out these gifts at the front desk – where’s the fun in that?

Put your Sherlock Holmes hat on. Each day, guests should check Twitter and Facebook for clues that will lead them to the gifts, hidden in unexpected spots throughout the property and Beaver Creek Village. It’s a good, old-fashioned scavenger hunt, albeit one with some serious payoffs waiting for you.
