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...More

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...More

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....More

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...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...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...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...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...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...More
