2016/12/31 Student Winter Driver Training Custom Tailored to the Participant!

Introduction:  What is Winter Driver Training? 

For SATURDAY, Dec. 31, 2016, conveniently during the Christmas break, we are offering a special “student” edition of our Winter Driver Training so students are not in the middle of exams or school work!  Course content is the same or similar and instruction is tailored to suit each driver.  However for non-students the instruction is still custom tailored to the participant so you will get some great instruction!

The most danger a student/young person will face in their life is during driving and especially prior to gaining enough experience in handling adverse conditions such as winter or emergencies.  It could be argued this is not only for students but for all drivers on our streets!  Hence, students are entirely welcome at a reduced rate at our schools as well if they cannot attend this one.

Our goal is to serve the general public through sharing some of the special driving techniques we have acquired through motorsports/racing experience.  The goal is to provide knowledge of skills and 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/racing 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/racing.  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!  For most people it is an eye-opening experience and a great deal of fun!

Where can I attend?


  1. Days Inn Cochrane (5 Westside Drive) for the morning meeting and presentation.  Show up at 7:45 to sign waiver etc.
  2. 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 parking lot on the south/lake side of the highway.   

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: 8:00 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. (approx.)
Instructors to Drivers ratio (6:1 or better) 
Lunch is included.  Please let us know if you have any special dietary requirements.  Generally we use Subway or a Pizza outlet delivered to the site.

SASC is a Registered, Non-profit Society in Alberta.

And video:


Please note the following:

A. For car-classification, use:

1.  AS for all-season tires

2. SS for Super Studs and winter tires.

B.  Did you read the competition rules?  (Yes – we do not use competition rules for this training)

Just check yes, but in fact for these classes there are no competition rules per se since this is not a competition and that box gets checked for our regular summer competitive events when rules apply.
