Location: Purgatory Resort – Durango, CO 81301
For the 8th annual gathering, D4C will take place at Purgatory Resort in north Durango, CO. This resort operates a ski destination in the winter as well as a summer getaway destination in the summer. This location was selected with hopes to improve the lodging and accommodations for all D4C participants as well as providing access to scenic mountain roads in the near vicinity.
US 550 north through the historic town of Silverton up to Ouray, CO is known as the Million Dollar Highway and is a unique road worth driving. It is a two lane road dubbed the San Juan Skyway and Scenic Byway with multiple 10,000ft passes. This route will serve as our Saturday extended drive with a lunch stop in Ouray, CO to explore the unique shops and restaurants the town has to offer.
Event registration price remains at $80 per vehicle (early bird pricing), however we have reduced lodging costs for 2018. The property includes individual hotel style rooms at a great rate, as well as group style suites that promote more of a community atmosphere.
