About this event
Update 02/10/2022: We regret to have to inform that the rest of this season's ice events are cancelled. Ice and snow conditions have deteriorated past the point of us being able to run a safe event. : ( We look forward to seeing you at a Picnic, Fun Drive, Driving Clinic or quattroberfest 2022!
Audi Club North America - Glacier Lakes Chapter hosts Winter Ice Driving Events at Lake Cynthia in Prior Lake, MN. The event is a great opportunity to hone your winter driving skills in a safe and controlled environment. We will have a challenging set of exercises set up including a skid pad, slalom course, and the very popular "road course".
No experience required - this is a chance to learn and refine low-traction driving skills.

Other important details:

- Due to the nature of our driving exercises and the snow banks created during plowing, some low-clearance vehicles could suffer damage if control is lost. ACGL is not responsible for any vehicle damage. Vehicle damage is rare at these events, but smiles are abundant!
