The BMW Sun Mountain Lodge Tour 2019

The BMW Sun Mountain Lodge Tour 2019

by | Aug 29, 2019

The BMW CCA, Puget Sound Region Chapter, returns to the picturesque Sun Mountain Lodge on Saturday, August 3, 2019   This popular drive combines beautiful scenery, fun roads and a resort destination that challenges your desire to return home.

We will start the morning at 8:00 am meeting at Starbucks, 19813 US-2 Suite E-1, Monroe, WA 98272. We will snake our way north to reach Highway 20, the North Cascades Highway. This is a stretch of road that should not be missed, offering scenery of mountain peaks, valleys and lakes, along with twists and sweeping turns as the road climbs and dips through the Cascade Mountains. The route will include stops for scenic photo opportunities, bio-breaks and gas for the BMWs. We eventually arrive in the town of Winthrop and drive up the hillside to our final destination, Sun Mountain Lodge overlooking the Methow Valley.

For those not familiar with Sun Mountain Lodge, you will probably be shocked that it even exists; a beautiful full-service resort on the warm side of the Cascade Foothills! The property is situated above the Methow Valley with expansive views of the surrounding forest and valley and includes a luxurious spa, casual bar and grill and a AAA Four Diamond dining room with an award winning 5,000-bottle wine cellar focusing on Pacific Northwest labels.

Please RSVP to Greg Smith at tours@bmwpugetsound.com to participate in the drive. There is no pre-paid cost to attend, but you must book your room no later than June 30th. Please call the Sun Mountain Lodge directly at (509) 996-2211 and ask for the “BMW Club Group” rate for check-in on Saturday August 3rd.
