Winter Accademia Brings High-Adrenaline To High-Altitudes
It’s not often that the opportunity presents itself to drive a Lamborghini in the scenic mountains of Colorado, and rarely does it involve drifting the iconic vehicle along a specially-designed ice and snow track. However, for those who attended the thrilling Winter Accademia program in Aspen-Snowmass, they got to do just that. Expectations were as high as the elevation at this year’s landmark event, and the remarkable scenery and lavish accommodations, coupled with intrepid driving did not disappoint the adventure seekers in attendance.
After arrival in stunning Aspen-Snowmass, anticipatory tension was running high as guests checked into the Viceroy Snowmass, an opulent resort at the base of Snowmass Mountain. A relaxing cocktail hour, a private dinner at the much-acclaimed Eight K restaurant and time to connect with fellow Lamborghini owners and brand executives were just a few of the amenities that greeted drivers of both the Intensivo and Avanzato programs.
After a restful night’s sleep, guests took to the track as the morning sun emerged from behind the breathtaking landscape of the Rockies. A gourmet breakfast, and brief presentation preceded driving exercises that included a full-course slalom, figure eight drifting and track-lapping under the guidance of professional Lamborghini instructors. During their extraordinary one-day Intensivo session, or more challenging two-day Avanzato session, attendees were able to push their own driving limits, as well of those of the V10 Huracán LP610-4 and the V12 Aventador LP700-4.
Because days full of intensity should be met with evenings full of relaxation, attendees of these unrivaled driving programs indulged in the comfort of well-appointed accommodations, along with the ultimate in Lamborghini signature hospitality throughout their stay.
Those who registered for the Avanzato program spent an additional day savoring track time focused on advanced driving techniques and embarking on a thrilling snowmobile tour of the picturesque Aspen Highlands – all while reveling in the past night’s snowcat ride and memorable dinner at 11,000 feet.
The adrenaline-charged thrills, awe-inspiring views, opulent accommodations and carefully crafted experiences are what continue to make Lamborghini Winter Accademia a driving program that simply has no equal.
