Portia I wrote a review Feb 2019

My company sends a group of sales advisors who are home based in snow prone territories to this class every year. I now see why! I grew up driving through snow and rain in Pittsburgh, PA, but didn’t realize until taking this course how little I knew about the correct way to respond to situations where I have lost control of my vehicle. They give you mainly windshield time where you’re learning and practicing the skills that they review in the morning. The conditions get more and more treacherous as the day gets on and the track becomes more icy, but at the same time, you’re getting more and more comfortable whipping around the curves and over and understeering. I would recommend this to all!

I am so glad I finally did this, I have been saying for years that I wanted to especially as I live in a ski town. I finally attend the class and it wasn't just useful, but a very fun experience that I would do again and again!

We came because we had a new and overconfident teen driver. She definitely found her limits and was introduced to some important skills. Our highly confident and experienced adult male driver discovered some limits and new approaches. I came into the class concerned and underconfident. I really enjoyed the driving and was really pleased with how quickly a person can improve with skilled coaching and a safe place to practice. The teachers are outstanding as is the course and also the vehicles.

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 Toyota or Bridgstone tires.

Response from Rallygal, Public Relations Manager at Bridgestone Winter Driving School
Responded Mar 7, 2017
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 at our facility to your liking.

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 people ski for 20 years but that doesn't mean they are Olympic caliber skiers. Don't feel bad about it, just learn the right way and keep practicing the proper technique. I'll be back for the advanced school next year!
