Earlier this year I got together with my Travel Junkie friend, Kirsten Alana, to go on an adventure with the Land Rover Experience Driving School, at the Equinox Resort in Vermont. Neither of us had driven a Range Rover before and we were excited to get behind the wheel and drive off-road. We had no idea what the weather was going to be like when we set the date. New England’s long winter brought a mid-march snowstorm, which left us with an 80-acre course of snow & ice covered ascents, descents, and side tilts. Luckily their facility is open year round, so we got to experience the 2014 Range Rover Sport’s winter off-road capabilities.
I know what you’re thinking . . . rally driver + Range Rover Sport + off-road closed course = high-speed fun. Wrong. It was learning to maneuver a high center of gravity vehicle through snow covered rocky terrain. This kind of off-road driving was new to me, and luckily Kirsten was up for the challenge too.
We brought some cameras, planned on 4-days of exploration in 3 cities, and winged it. This is the first of three episodes of our Land Rover Experience. Come along and join us on our adventure!
