About this event
A Wild and Wooly Weekend II
August 25-28 of this year, we return to Snowmass for an event planned unlike any in recent memory. Is it a DE? Sort of. Is it a social event? Sort of. Is it the PCA event of 2016 you don’t want to miss? Absolutely.
Let’s begin with the highlights. How about spending four days in the mountains at perhaps the best time of year to be out there? Does enjoying the clean mountain air, stunning vistas, deluxe accommodations, great food, great people, and some incredible Porsche fun sound good? What if we threw in two days on a private race track of the rich and famous for those so inclined?
Sound like a decent way to spend four days? We begin on Thursday, August 25th when you drive up to beautiful Snowmass. We are greeted by our hosts with a welcome reception at our base of operations, the gorgeous Crestwood in Snowmass. That is followed by a bite of dinner, and our legendary ground school, covering the fundamentals of high performance driving, and specifics about Aspen Motorsports Park.
Friday, those who want to experience the thrill of driving on an exclusive race track with the most beautiful backdrop of any track we visit will head to Aspen Motorsports Park (formerly known as Woody Creek Raceway). There, they will enjoy tips (if desired) from our top notch cadre of instructors, and lap this amazing circuit. The track is incredibly fun, keeping you busy all the way around, and if you haven’t been here, you will soon know why those who have raved about it for years afterward. Friday evening you have on your own to explore Snowmass or Aspen
Saturday, we return to the track for our last day there, followed by a wonderful farewell banquet that night in Snowmass Village.
Sunday, enjoy the area at your leisure, followed by a drive home over stunning Independence Pass.
This weekend isn’t just for track junkies, however. For everyone else, there is a huge variety of things to enjoy. See how many times you can drive up and down Independence Pass, enjoy the shopping, spas, golf, fly fishing, hiking, mountain biking, rafting, horseback riding, and dining options in Snowmass and Aspen. Head up the road to the Glenwood Hot Springs. The list goes on and on.
Did I mention that this event is deluxe all the way? Our accommodations at The Crestwood have full kitchens, amazing views, fireplaces, balconies, are beautifully furnished and decorated, and well positioned in Snowmass Village. Swimming pool, hot tubs, and sauna are all at your disposal. They’re so nice, you might not want to leave them. We are offering one, two, and three bedroom accommodations (all with private baths), so you can choose from sharing the weekend with friends, or having a quiet place to yourself.
We expect this event to sell out very quickly, so plan on signing up when registration opens, or you might be disappointed.
Note – mufflers are mandatory - if your car has straight pipes, it will not be allowed to run. They have strict noise limits. Space for trailers is also severely limited – if you need to trailer your car and aren’t one of the first to sign up, we may not be able to accommodate you, unfortunately.
Finally, any guesses why we call this “A Wild and Wooly Weekend”? In October of 2010, workers building a reservoir dam to supply water to Snowmass Village discovered fossil bones of a young female mammoth. Plus, we think this will be a mammoth event in the annals of PCA!
