It was introduced as the Automobile Club of Andorra wanted to instruct drivers in an engaging, fun way about how to deal with snow and ice so they could feel how the vehicle they’re driving reacts and learn to manage it better.
Snow Driving also gives those wanting to try their hand at high-speed driving on ice the opportunity to have a go.
The ice driving school offers seven different lessons suitable for all levels and tastes. The snow and ice sports driving lessons (Sport and Sport 2) last two hours and are aimed at experienced drivers wanting to try out sports driving on ice. There are also snow and ice driving lessons lasting four hours for groups or companies and for teenagers aged 16 to 18. In the four-hour group lessons, participants learn to improve their vehicle control and reactions when the terrain is slippery. The Contact 1 lesson for one or two people lasts two hours or four hours for groups. It improves driver confidence and vehicle control when the terrain is slippery. The Super Sport lesson lasts two hours and covers sports driving on ice. Finally, the two-hour Giand Cup lesson is a sports experience which recreates the GSeries race in an all-wheel-drive competition vehicle with studded tyres.
Lessons are held in front-wheel-drive or all-wheel-drive Mazda vehicles. All are fitted with premium Pirelli winter tyres.
Snow driving requires the driver to be in optimum physical and mental condition. Helmets and specialist sports driving gloves and shoes must be worn.
The snow driving circuit has three tracks. It also has artificial lighting for night-time activity.
Snow driving takes place at Circuit Andorra - Pas de la Casa in the Port d’Envalira mountain pass. It is 2400 metres above sea level on a snow- and ice-covered route which is 980 metres long and 10 metres wide with a long straight and various different bends. This location ensures that the snow and ice surface is an excellent quality.
