You have to already be a Ferrari owner to get into the brand’s new Winter Driving Experience course in Aspen, Colorado.

And since nobody who buys the FF will actually take it out in the snow, this slick, 2-day driving program really is a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

It’s not a race; it’s a physical challenge testing you like never before. And it’s coming soon, to a city near you.

Let them help you check one off your bucket list.
Some people are perfectly happy with a vacation involving nothing but loafing and cocktails. Others of us prefer something a bit more adventurous than Sandals or Disney—a trip where no Starbucks can be found. Where we sweat and see new things.

Intriguing? Yes. Cold? Very.
