BEAVERUN'S SUV AND OFF-ROAD TRAINING PROGRAMS
  BeaveRun Off Road Challenge

You and your friends have done it all... the ropes courses, the fantasy camps, maybe even racing schools.  You love the outdoors.  You love the challenge.  And you know dirt washes off. 

The BeaveRun Off Road Challenge is for you.  Get ready to:

  • Tackle tough terrain;
  • Manage steep inclines;
  • Negotiate mud bogs;
  • Work your way through real "rock gardens;" and,
  • Work as a team to build your way through obstacles.

You'll begin the day by becoming familiar with terms such as approach angle and departure angle. We'll discuss spotter signals and recovery techniques as well as how to create and maintain momentum as you traverse our trails. This is followed by a chance to apply what you have learned on our unique 4WD exercise area which has been specially designed to include a variety of terrain changes and obstacles such as declines, inclines, moguls, obstacles and side slopes. The practical training in this area will prepare you for the actual off-road conditions lurking around the corner.

Next, you'll hit the trails.  What you encounter will range from unimproved roadways to more difficult and challenging terrain replete with water crossings, critical V's, soft ground, and imposing obstacles. 

The day is capped off with a real bear of a trail - negotiating it will challenge even experienced off road 4 wheelers.

Cost: $850.00 (Includes lunch and refreshments during the day)

BeaveRun SUV Program

As an “SUV” driver, have you ever asked yourself:

  • “Can this vehicle stop quickly?” or
  • “What happens if I have to swerve to avoid a crash?” or
  • “When should I use 4WD?” or
  • “What should I do if I start to skid on a slippery road?”

We not only provide the answers to these questions, we provide the opportunity for you to experience and hone your skills in our vehicles.

This One-Day Program is designed specially for the driver of the popular vehicles known as SUV, four-wheel-drive, truck, all-wheel-drive, minivan or 4x4. Call them what you please, these modern day “grocery getters” are not cars and cannot not be driven like typical sedans. A high center of gravity, power to all four wheels, massive weight, large size and lots of power make these vehicles behave very differently from cars. Not only do they demand respect from their drivers because of their unusual handling characteristics, but with their weight and mass, they become lethal projectiles to the ever growing segment of lighter fuel efficient cars traversing our highways.

The BeaveRun SUV Program is designed to teach people the concepts of driving these vehicles efficiently and safely. Since they are used as daily family transport as well as gateways to adventure, the road manners of the vehicle are important.

This course covers requirements to operate a 4WD safely on normal roads and introduces the concept of unimproved road driving.

Our one-day course will let you confidently and safely drive your SUV, addressing:

  • Paved road driving
  • Braking
  • ABS
  • Traction control
  • Following distances
  • Swerving to avoid a crash
  • Skids
  • 4WD in slippery conditions, snow and ice
  • Driving on unimproved roads

Cost:  $475 per person using our vehicles.
