Winter Skills - Advanced Driver Training

Hi guys,

Has anyone done this event?

Winter Skills - Advanced Driver Training

It's not particularly cheap, so my friend, whom I'm asking for, is wondering will it add anything on top of regular autocross experience in terms of car control in limited traction conditions?

probably wouldnt add much more than you could learn at a wet autocross.

if you want real winter driving skill, come race up on the ice near Cache creek. basically autox on ice.
races are usually January and February. they're typically 2 day events. the hotel in Ashcroft is inexpensive. makes a great weekend.

I'd imagine it's very similar to a autoX 101 event in terms of learning.
