'Aston Martin On Ice 2015' Coming to Colorado

By Paul Joseph

Aston Martin are to host their second annual ice driving program in Colorado in February, offering thrill seekers a unique driving experience in the heart of the Rocky Mountains.

Taking place among the dramatic Crested Butte mountain range, the ‘On Ice’ program gives Aston Martin enthusiasts the chance to hone their driving skills in a spectacular setting over three days.

The iconic British car makers have custom built an ice track for the program, comprising a braking/cornering exercise loop, slalom, skid pad and full circuit. Under expert tuition, participants are guided through the facility, before embarking upon a series of braking, cornering and handling exercises and then putting their skills to the test on a mile-long frozen road course.

Luxurious accommodations will be provided for all three days at the exclusive boutique hotel properties of the Eleven Group that are nestled in the mountains.

Julian Jenkins, President of Aston Martin The Americas, said: “After this hugely successful first year we expect the On Ice program to become a mainstay of our customer experience offerings here in North America.

"The ability to experience a range of our cars in a unique and controlled environment resonates with Aston Martin customers and enthusiasts who are united by a shared passion for driving."

As well as the ‘On Ice’ driving program, guests will also have the chance to indulge in other activities including skiing and exploring the back country on a fleet of snow mobiles.

Available dates for the ‘Aston Martin On Ice 2015’ program are February 20th – 22nd or February 22nd – 24th. Pricing is set at $9,999 for a driving guest and $2,499 for a non-riving guest.
