The 1st part of the CSCC “Ice Dice” is the school CSCC Winter Driving Academy then is 4 events on Ghost Lake west of Cochrane Alberta. The biggest problem with the school & the Ice Dice events is both will sell out fast, so if you are interested sign as soon as it becomes available. Calgary Sports Car Club (CSCC) membership is not required but obviously suggested.

Where is not necessary to take this program to be able to participate in our ice racing series (Ice Dice) we feel that the training will help your progress quickly and make most out of the following events.

The focus of the school is on performance driving but no experience is necessary as we will cater the training to individual needs. Our goal is to help you improve car control, understand racing principals and increase your confidence of driving in winter conditions.
