The Bridgestone Winter Driving School.  The most fun you can have without
taking your' parka off.   Colorado quattro folks usually have an event
there around the first of Feb. I went in '96 couldn't make it in '97 but
plan to be there in '98.  Basic idea is teaching dynamics of driving in low
traction conditions. At the low speeds on their course you have plenty of
time to learn and understand - just before hitting that snowbank...
