Four Destinations That Auto Enthusiasts Should Visit This Winter
The recently opened Porsche Experience Center Los Angeles (porschedriving.com), located just south of the city proper, is the West Coast counterpart to the facility that opened 2 years ago in Atlanta. In addition to housing the brand’s North American motorsport division, the new center features driving courses where you can get behind the wheel of a new Porsche and learn how to get out of a tailspin and other skills. You also can explore just how fast the car accelerates, and feel the g-forces that come with entering a banked racetrack turn at speed.
The Green Mountains offer an abundance of winter activities: downhill and cross-country skiing, tubing, snowshoeing, snowmobiling, dog-sledding. And thanks to the roughly 6 feet of snow that usually falls on the region during this season, you can also refresh or improve your winter-driving skills at the Land Rover Experience Driving School at the Equinox Golf Resort & Spa (equinoxresort.com). The school operates on a purpose-built course that covers 80 acres. It’s open year-round, but during the winter months you can expect plenty of practice on snow-covered, slippery terrain.
