Happy new year! For the start of 2018, D4C is proud to announce the 8th annual D4C event dates. From the success of the new location in Purgatory, the D4C coordinating team has decided to continue with Purgaotry Resort for another year. We have been able to secure better rates for 2018 and have been planning additional tweaks to yet again improve the overall experience!
This includes dedicated space in the Purgatory main lot for our group, an exclusive private meeting space all weekend where buffet meals will be available for us. We also have a Sunday evening Ice Cream sundae social planned for those whom decide to stay until Monday. In addition to all of this, the lodging is grouped closer together than 2017 and the rates are lower than last year!
What is Drive 4 Corners, you ask? It is an annual informal gathering of BMW enthusiasts focused on a road-trip adventure in the Rocky Mountains. It gets you out of the heat of the summer to a scenic mountain destination. D4C aims to connects BMW enthusiasts from across the nation and provide a friendly event and weekend getaway. For more info, visit this page.
Drive 4 Corners is proud to announce D4C 2018 will take place at the Purgatory Resort, just outside of Durango, Colorado. This destination will provide an excellent backdrop since operates as a ski resort in the winter but a unique adventure hub in the summer. It has a backdrop of amazing mountain views on all sides. The facility is known as Purgatory Resort and is located North of Durango, CO. The base sits above 8000 feet in elevation, so event participants will need to stay hydrated and wear sunscreen!
Friday, August 24-Sunday August 26, 2018.

It also gives access to one of the most scenic roads in Colorado, a section US 550 known as The Million Dollar Highway. This route travels along the San Juan Skyway and Scenic Byway past the historic mining town of Silverton (9,300ft elevation) and leads through three passes of over 10,500 feet. This route is less of a spirited driving route and much more akin to a scenic drive because of the mountain views and lack of guard rails! There are very few passing zones and the road is almost exclusively a single lane road in each direction. Please do not expect high speeds or any sort of spirited driving along this stretch of road! Approaching the town of Ouray, CO is quite a view and will serve as a great destination for our Saturday group drive and photo opportunity. More details to be posted about this ‘extended drive’. This will be one route that you don’t want to miss!
