Day 3 Extreme winter driving

We drove Minis on a frozen lake (I’ve never been mapped over water—in a car, with no bridge). They gave us lessons—moose avoidance, slalom course, braking on ice—then handed us the keys! Swede and I sped around a rally course, bouncing off snow banks and drifting around sharp turns. My crazed driving made him so sick, he had to get out for my last circuit. (More videos to come)

From the Ice Hotel site: 

a morning session with a MINI Countryman Cooper at our private ice circuit. The session is arranged as a half-day course, including theory and practical tests. Learn from your specially trained instructor what to expect from a car when on icy or slippery roads, and put your skills to the test
