Learn to drive on ice with snow driving
Would you like to learn how to drive on ice? If so, then snow driving courses are for you!
These courses were created thanks to the Automòbil Club d’Andorra’s desire to give drivers all the tips and tricks for driving on ice and snow, in a fun and dynamic way: you won’t just feel the reactions of the vehicle in your own hands – you’ll also learn how to manage them correctly.
Driving on ice at the Circuit of Andorra
The snow driving activity takes place at the Circuit of Andorra driving track, located at the Envalira Pass, 2,400 metres above sea level. The circuit consists of a 980-m long, 10-m wide track that is totally covered in snow and ice and combines a long straight with all kinds of turns. Its location guarantees a high-quality snow and ice surface.
Four snow and ice driving courses
The snow and ice driving school offers four different courses adapted to all levels and tastes. First up is the two-hour Contact Winter course, for one or two people, where you will learn to improve your confidence and the control of the vehicle in situations where there is little road grip. A four-hour version of this course is also available for groups of 12 people.
The second course – Sport Winter – and the third – Super Sport Winter – are courses more focused on learning and perfecting sport driving on snow and ice: lasting two hours, they are designed for experienced drivers looking to discover sport driving on ice. Sport Winter, the first sport driving course, is designed for those wanting to dive deeper into the world of sport driving. The only requirements are having some driving experience and a valid driving licence.
Super Sport Winter, on the other hand, is more difficult and requires good physical and mental conditions in order to do it: you’ll be driving a front-wheel-drive race car where you’ll feel like a real racing driver!
Both the sport driving courses can be taken by one person individually or two together.
Finally, the last course offered by the Automòbil Club d’Andorra, is the four-hour Giand Cup course, done in groups of at least four people. You’ll have a sport experience that recreates a G-Series race with four-wheel-drive racing prototypes equipped with studded tyres! This activity also requires you to be in optimal physical and mental condition.
Lastly, please note that the use of a helmet, gloves and suitable footwear is mandatory for sport driving.
Take the step and learn to drive on ice like a real professional!
