3 Winter Weekend Getaways From NYC
The Equinox Resort and Spa
Manchester Village, Vt.
How about a different kind of "road" trip? At The Equinox in the historic village of Manchester in Vermont, guests can sign up for the Land Rover Experience to get driving lessons in the best or worst winter conditions.
Participants go behind the wheel of a new Land Rover and face numerous challenges on the property's 80-acre purpose-built course. The degree of difficulty is matched to the driver's skill, and more advanced drivers can explore the expansive trails through the mountains."Guests can learn safe driving techniques on ascents, descents and side tilts," says Gerry McFarland, director of sales and marketing at The Equinox. "We give you a certificate of completion when you finish the course." The Land Rover Experience comes at $250 per hour and $400 for a two-hour lesson. Guests, however, can combine the off-road driving programs with accommodations. Winter weekend room rates for the Land Rover Experience package start at $450 per night and includes one-hour of ice-driving lessons for up to four people. A two-night stay is required. The Equinox is one of only four destinations in the U.S. that offer the Land Rover Experience. The other three are in North Carolina (Biltmore), Canada (Fairmont) and California (Quail Lodge).
