It’s time to start setting our sights on 2017 Drive 4 Corners! With a new year, the D4C team is proud to present the 2017 event dates as well as a change in our event location. With the vision to improve the event as a whole as well as for a different event vibe and feel, the D4C organizing team has found a new, unique venue that will step up the quality of the event as whole!
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 that the new venue is 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 ski slopes as well as 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!

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!
Purgatory Resort has an array of amenities that will be accessible for all participants choosing to stay on the property, including a Heated Outdoor Pool and Waterslide, Fitness Center, an outdoor Alpine slide, Lift access to the top of the mountain, as well as access to hiking and biking trails.
