To help the well-heeled keep their 2011 Ferrari FFs out of the ditches in icy conditions, and give them something to plan a ski vacation around, Ferrari has announced it will hold a winter driving course for new FF owners in Aspen this winter.

The course is available with limited slots exclusively available for Ferrari owners over a six- or seven-week period this winter. The spots will be made available late this summer on a first-come, first-serve basis.

The American program is based on the Pilota on Ice programs Ferrari offered to European buyers in the Alps. Aspen may not be quite as shi-shi a setting, but an ice road laid down among Colorado's famous "fourteeners" sounds like a good time to us. See all the details in the press release after the break.

Coming Soon: Ferrari to Offer Winter Driving Program for FF in Aspen

The FF, the first all-wheel drive Ferrari, arrives in the fall, just in time to plan a ski trip in a car that offers ample four-seat accommodations and premium luxury. With the goal of elevating driver skill and enhancing one's appreciation of this all-season GT, Ferrari will offer a special winter driving course in Aspen, Colorado. Sessions will begin in January and be available for 6-7 weeks, exclusively for Ferrari owners.

Modeled on the "Pilota on Ice" programs recently offered in Italy, the winter driving program will allow Ferrari owners to experience the all-new FF in dynamic snow and ice conditions. Spaces will be limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis.

The beauty and topography of Aspen offers the perfect backdrop for the custom-made snow and ice course that Ferrari will build to showcase the FF model's abilities. The new GT debuts the Ferrari-designed 4RM all-wheel drive system, which enables the FF to retain the sporty and dynamic driving characteristics typical of a Ferrari while providing the added traction necessary in low-grip situations.

Ferrari will convey additional details on the FF winter driving program in late summer, affording plenty of time for clients to plan their trip to the Centennial State. Those wishing to coordinate a program with their own ski vacation can pursue options through the Ferrari Concierge.

To hold a seat or confirm your interest, contact the Ferrari Concierge at 1-866-551-2828 (Monday-Friday from 11 AM-6 PM EST) or send a note to support@ferrarisupport.com.

      This car is ugly and will go down as one of the ugliest Ferraris made ever. It is like Ferrari got entranced with the ugly Mazda3 grin and decided to plaster it on. Have read the reviews on the car in the mags and they are not the most flattering.

      Here's a better idea: Instead of a winter driving course, how bout those fortunate enough to afford a Ferrari buy another vehicle, one that is a lot more capable of winter handling during the Winter months and leave the Ferrari for the warmer months?!

      Aspen sucks. I love Colorado, but that is the one crap part of it. Filled with idiots who don't stay to the right and hog the passing lane because they feel important in their giant luxury SUV.
