Take a course that helps you master driving on ice. 

At Porsche Ice Experience, you'll learn to rule the road, no matter the weather.

When you hear the word winter, most people picture cozy fires, hot cocoa, and the peaceful serenity that accompanies the season. But here at Porsche, winter isn't for sitting still. Quite the opposite actually. It's the season where snow, ice, and other treacherous conditions serve as a whole new exciting driving experience. 

That's why at Porsche Ice Experience, we invite drivers to take on winter in a whole new way. Over several days, our instructors teach drivers to conquer the season on specially prepared snow and ice tracks. You'll learn to drive a Porsche the way it's meant to be driven with the skills that will make you a more confident and competent winter driver.
