The guys where abrasive, not sure if it was just a bad day or what. Either way, it made for an unpleasant experiences. Also, would have been nice to use my own vehicle; they want you in their cars while you listen to a sales pitch. I paid to learn how to drive better in winter weather, not buy a... More

Hello Roscobe. We don’t find it fair to post a review eluding to the fact you attended a class when you did not. You didn’t even speak directly with anyone at the BWDS or visit our office in person. You communicated solely via email. I’m sorry your didn’t find our policies regrading private track rental and use of private vehicles... More

As a life long resident of the snow belt I thought I was a pretty good winter driver. These guys showed me otherwise. I've just been lucky. I had no idea that many of the "techniques" I believed to be true are simply urban myth and not based on physics and science. As one of the instructors told me- some... More

What a great way to "test drive" a new Lexus. An experienced instructor coaches you through turning, stopping, accelerating and pulling out of a skid on a private track made of solid ice in a beautiful setting. Adrenaline- filled fun and vital info for anyone who drives in the mountains. Give it as a gift to EVERYONE you may some... More

Ok, I didn't crash the 2016 Lexus but I tapped a snowbank, and the amount of white fluff that flew deemed it a crash in my mind. (It required taking the snow scraper and brushing snow from the grill; problem solved.) While I grew up driving in snow and ice on the East Coast, it's a little different in CO.... More

Bottom line: I no longer fear driving on snowy, icy roads. The all-day, Second Gear class is taught by a very experienced professional, and you're driving around in brand new Lexus 350s, NXs, and GXs. Our SUV had less than 1000 miles on it. You practice braking with/without ABS. You learn oversteer and understeer, and you learn how to make... More

During a particularly cold day on December 29, we decided to take a break from skiing and were lucky enough to draw the only three available slots for the all-day class. Kurt Spitzner was our contact and he took an interest in learning about each student before placing them with an instructor. We enrolled our children, ages 16,18, and 21... More

While in Steamboat for the month of February, I took the day long Second Step class at the Bridgestone Winter Driving School. Prior to making arrangements for the class, I called with some questions. I was recently in a car accident, so I wanted to make sure that this was the class I should take. I also wanted to make... More

We went to Steamboat in February to take the Second Gear winter driving class and had a great day. This class was a safety driving course, they also offer performance driving for advanced winter drivers. The day started pretty rough, you have to sign some papers, show your driver's license and pick a sandwich for lunch. The lady at reception... More

I have ridden snowmobiles, mushed a dog sled, ridden in a hot air balloon, and have done nearly every non-skiing activity a resort town has to offer.However, participating in the Bridgestone Winter Driving School is hands-down the best activity to do when taking a ski break. This one of a kind activity can only be done in Steamboat Springs, CO.... More

My company sent me here for winter driving training and it was not only informative but an absolute blast! I learned a lot about vehicle control, the vehicles were very nice to drive, and the instructors TJ and Morgan were phenomenal. I plan on sending my wife to this class and recommend it to anyone!
