For those Aston Martin fans and owners out there looking to recreate in a cooler way, the Aston Martin on Ice school is an option. While many exotic driving schools are located in other countries, this one is nestled right in Crested Butte, Colorado. Yes, the name kicks butt.
This could be among the coolest pro driving schools available, and it is in the U.S. now.
The Colorado Aston Martin on Ice school spans over a facility specifically designed to teach drivers how to handle an Aston Martin car on ice and snow and other unsavory conditions. It includes some of the following features:
- An ice track with multiple stages. Stages include a slalom course, skidpad and complete circuit for driving.
- Students are walked through classroom instruction, handling exercises and braking practice prior to taking on the mile-long frozen road in the Aston Martin cars.
- Cars for the Aston Martin on Ice school include the following: The Aston Martin Vanquish, V12 Vantage, Rapide and the DB9.
- Aside from the sheer awesomeness of taking an Aston Martin out on the ice, students are put up in a luxury hotel in the mountains.
The Aston Martin on Ice program was offered in Europe last year, and started back up in February 2014 Stateside. They are currently accepting applications for next year, though I am sure they are filling up faster than the cars can hit 60 miles per hour! Ferrari has offered something similar starring its Ferrari FF hot hatch over in Europe, it would be great to see these types of classes gain traction and become more available to the masses. In the meantime, you can always secure a spot behind the wheel of a supercar with our own Ultimate Driving Experiences all over the United States…off the ice, however!
