Bridgestone offers winter-driving classes

Your collector car may never see snow, but how is your winter-weather driving skill set?

The Bridgestone Winter Driving School, the only purpose-built, terrain-based school of its kind in North America, is open for the season at Steamboat Springs, Colorado. The school has been teaching the proper techniques for driving in cold-weather, low-grip situations on its signature ice and snow-covered tracks since 1983.

“We are excited to announce that the Bridgestone Winter Driving School is now open for business seven days a week for the duration of the winter season,” said Mark Cox, school director. “We feature a wide variety of programs for every driver from beginner to pro racer as well as our targeted custom programs such as trailering on ice and mission-specific training.”

“As the nation’s first and foremost winter driving school we are honored to carry on the tradition teaching divers to be competent and confident in the most challenging driving conditions imaginable. The skills mastered here make driving in any condition more manageable and safer.”

A range of 2018 model-year Toyota vehicles equipped with Bridgestone’s Blizzak tires are standard equipment in the school’s safety and performance programs. The school tries to match drivers with the vehicle most like what they’ll be driving back at home.

The Bridgestone Winter Driving School is scheduled to operate seven days a week through early March. Half-day, full day, multi-day, corporate and private courses are available.

    Please do not use the inappropriate term – hearing impaired (or impairment). If I tell people that I am hearing impaired, they think something is wrong with me. However, if I tell people I am deaf, they say nothing is wrong with me except that I can’t hear!

    Those two terms are not interchangeable. Many deaf people who consider themselves to be just communicating through a different language (American Sign Language) can feel insulted when they’re identified as “impaired.”

    We are not disabled or impaired, we are a linguistic minority.

    Please remove this "hearing impaired" – thanks.
