Winter Driver Training (NOTE THAT THE CLASSROOM SESSION IS ON THE EVENING BEFORE! - SEE DETAILS BELOW)
Introduction: What is Winter Driver Training?
The most danger a driver will face in their life is during driving and especially prior to gaining enough experience in handling adverse conditions such as winter or emergencies.
Our goal is to serve the general public through sharing some of the special driving techniques we have acquired through motorsports experience. The goal is to develop superior car control skills to tackle reduced grip on ice and snow or any other emergency situation all year round. We will improve your driving no matter how experienced you are and we aim to make this a very pleasant and fun experience driving on the ice!
Who are the instructors?
Our team of instructors come from various motorsports backgrounds. The instructors are comprised of International and national autocross champions, formula car and high performance driving instructors, time attack competitors, sports/touring car, go kart and rally drivers. They all have the same passion in driving and are skilled in their respective disciplines of motorsport. The team would love to pass their experience and car control skills to you! It is highly likely some of these skills we teach you may never have heard or dreamed of as being possible!
Where can I attend?
- MICROSOFT STORE AT CHINOOK MALL for the 7 pm evening meeting and presentation on Saturday, Feb. 7. The store is located on the lower level next to Nordstorm's
- Ghost Lake: Ghost Lake is located approximately 17 km west of Cochrane on Hwy 1A just west of the bridge on the south side of the highway. The ice is accessed via a boat ramp from the south parking lot. We will meet at the south parking lot (west side of the bridge) at 9 am.
At this time of the year, Ghost Lake is a giant sheet of ice like a large hockey rink. This makes it a perfect venue for learning how to drive your own vehicle in ice and snow conditions. Best of all, it is only 30 minutes away from Calgary
Time: 9:00 a.m. – 4:30 p.m., 7 pm at the Microsoft Store at Chinook Mall on the evening before (Feb. 7).
