The most important day in the build-up to Subaru Winter Experience is finally upon us: Dollar Lake is officially frozen!

Freezing is the first step in the preparation of our unique ice driving courses. The ice is still not thick enough to drive on, but the weather forecast looks good for that moving forward. That leads us to the next step of the process: working on the track designs, which will be all new for winter 2020.

“We’re excited to announce that Dollar Lake is frozen, because it means we can start developing the bes...

If you had access to a world-class Subaru WRX STI rally car, where’s the first place you would take it? Some of us would bring it through the woods, and others might simply long for an open highway. But at Subaru Winter Experience, we think we’ve got the coolest (or at least coldest) answer of all: one of our purpose-built ice tracks!

For Subaru Winter Experience participants, part of the fun of driving around the ice can be pretending you’re a real-world Subaru Motorsports USA driver. After all, our WRX STIs debuted in the team’s current livery last winter, and one of them even carried Patrik Sandell’s signature number 18 on the side! Subaru’s rally and rallycross heritage in the United States is second to none, making it the perfect vehicle to use on the ice—and this year’s results prove it.

Subaru Motorsports USA scored championships in both major se...
