Drive 4 Corners - August 2017 - New Location - Purgatory Resort

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, no matter what BMW they drive. For more info, visit this page.

Date: Friday, August 25-27, 2017
Location: Purgatory Resort - Durango, CO 81301

For the 7th 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. The ascent to Purgatory is an excellent two lane road, perfect for D4C caravans as they approach their final destination. 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.











The Drive 4 Corners team is very excited for this change as it will bring a new element to the event as a whole.

Reserving this venue means that event registration price has increased to $80 per vehicle (early bird pricing), however we have struck a deal with the hotel with reduced lodging costs to offset the increase. Another great part about the change in venue means that the lodging and accommodations are much broader. The property includes individual hotel style rooms at a great rate, as well as group style suites that promote more of a community atmosphere.

As always, the D4C team will organize a fun filled weekend focused around the BMW’s we love to drive, and all of the great friends we have made in the process of owning these machines. Come on out for 2017 and enjoy this ‘driving-destination’ weekend and make some new friends! We can’t wait to see what new great people and unique BMW’s arrive for 2017 and we hope you choose to join us this August!

The start of Drive 4 Corners 2017 is only one month away and that means that final event preparations are coming together. We hope you are finishing any last minute repair work on your BMW so that it can be ready for the trek to Purgatory, CO. We can't wait for you to join us this year along US 550, also known as the Million Dollar Highway. It will be a great break from the heat of summer and will hopefully be a time to meet both old and new friends, as well as sharing the passion of our BMW ownership.

Group caravan information will be shared in the upcoming weeks if you are interested in driving down to the Resort in a group on Friday, August 25th. It seems we will have Dallas, Denver, Colorado Springs, Gilbert, and Albuquerque caravans.

If you haven't seen already, the weekend event schedule has been posted. Take a look at our most recent website post to review this schedule as well as the activities offered on the property of Purgatory Resort. The hotel is getting prepared for our event and is willing to accommodate a car wash station as you all have come to expect.


Additionally, don't forget to reserve your lodging if you haven't already! The facility will fill up as we approach August, and you best chance for lower rates may be diminished. As an added perk, most of the lodging has some sort of covered parking or garage option, so you can feel like your car will remain protected and secure when you are not using it.


Compared to years past, our Saturday event will be slightly different from what you may have been used to. US-550 is not conducive to a spirited group drive since there are sharp drop offs single lanes either direction and limited passing zones. So we will be doing a group gathering and photo location Saturday morning prior to a day of individual excursion. There are plenty of sites along the Driving Tour route that will be distributed, but for those who want something else, there are plenty of other activities to enjoy. The Resort has Alpine Slide, Zip Line, Ropes Course, Mini-golf, mountain biking, and Frisbee golf from 10:00-6:00pm every day.

Additionally Durango and the surrounding area has hiking trails, and outdoor activities like horseback riding, ATV's, paddle boating, and other activities if you decide to find a separate activity.

We hope you are excited for the event this year and can't wait for you to Drive 4 Corners with us!
