What is the CSCC Winter Driving Academy?

A two day focus on car control, braking, weight transfer, and vision – against the backdrop of extreme winter conditions (i.e. a frozen lake). This event is open to the general public. No experience is necessary. Participation in our ice driving series is not required but we hope that you'll have enough fun to change your mind.

Who are the instructors?

A band of driving enthusiasts. Our group is comprised of drivers with competitive experience in autocross, ice, kart, road, and rally racing. Our instructors at this academy will have one common goal in mind: how to get you faster across an ice track. This will involve instruction on fundamental winter driving skills and applying them on the track. 

Day 1: Classroom
Day 2: Hands-on
  • Where: Ghost Lake (arrive between 8:00am - 8:30am)
  • When: January 14, 8:30am - 4:30pm

*Lunch is provided. If you have any dietary restrictions please plan accordingly as we may not be able to accommodate your needs.
