Aston Martin On Ice 2013 Is Everything We’ve Ever Wanted

This (short) video has a number of things we hold dear: Aston Martins, luxury ski resorts, and drifting. These three factors conspire for Aston Martin’s annual winter driving experience, an event that allows customers and enthusiasts to test the British manufacturer’s range of vehicles in the snow and ice.
This year’s event just wrapped up at the iconic ski resorts of St. Moritz, Switzerland. It’s an interesting twist on the usual performance driving school, dropping these powerful, rear-drive GTs onto an ice field in the Alps. While we doubt many Aston Martin owners take their cars out during the winter, we've not doubt that there are tangible benefits to learning to drive in these unusual conditions. Check out the trailer below, which features gratuitous V-12 engine notes, sideways action, and some very pretty cars.
