BMW to Offer Snow and Ice Driving Courses in Winter 2011 - Web Exclusive

The BMW Snow Intensive Training courses demonstrate skillful braking and steering that can be used to deal with slippery roads.

Drivers in Europe now have the opportunity to train with BMW themselves in the snow and ice. This new BMW Driving Experience offers special driver training courses tailored to harsh road conditions.

The BMW Snow Intensive Training courses in Solden, Austria demonstrate how skillful braking and steering can be used to deal with slippery roads, including uphill and downhill routes. Solden provides the perfect conditions for the courses; the BMW Driver Training Center in the Austrian resort is the highest venue of its kind. Here participants practice all the skills required for winter driving - from emergency braking to drifting and off-road driving - under the watchful eye of BMW driver trainers. And they can admire the magnificent scenery of the Otztal Alps at the same time. Participants will have use of a variety of current BMW models over the two days of the course, including the new BMW X3, BMW 5 Series and BMW M3.

Drifting in the snow will be one of the most favorite courses. BMW hosts a half-day drift-training course with a BMW M3. Another exciting course takes place in Arjeplog, 60km south of the Arctic Circle. The Swedish testing site gives BMW trainees a chance to drive a M3 equipped with spikes prepared for ice. Turning into corners, counter-steering and stabilizing are the keys to high-speed drifting with extreme lateral dynamics. A "taxi ride" in the BMW M3 Ice Racer and ice racing action under floodlights with the Polaris quad bike provide the perfect complement to an intensive driving experience. Once the day's driving pleasure is over, the participants are given an exclusive look behind the scenes of the BMW test center. The training courses last four, five or six days, depending on the content of the course and the previous experience of participants.
