Adventurers Course

For those who have previously had some 4x4 training, build on the fundamental skills with more advanced techniques for traction, line analysis, trip planning, and recovery. This course is more demanding of both driver and vehicle—pinstriping and a skid plate work out are likely, so discussing your specific experience and vehicle set-up with an instructor is required before you book this. Though strenuous, the emphasis is safety and responsible trail use.

Vehicle requirements: Non-stock rigs with 33” or taller tires on 2-doors, 35" or taller tires on 4-doors, skid plates, recovery points, lift, traction device recommended.

One-Day Course (7-8 hours)
$250 per vehicle


None available at this time. Please see custom private courses below.


 

3-Day Arizona Adventure

Three days of wheeling and training in classic Arizona terrain. The first two days will incorporate training in 4wd principles, including vehicle prep, picking a line, power management, safety and ethics, similar to our full training courses, but with more emphasis on enjoying the trail, rather than just strictly training.

Day 1: Moderate trail suitable for capable stock rigs, like Jeep Wranglers. Similar to our Explorers Course.
Day 2: Adventurous rock crawling trail, suitable for 4wd with at least one axle lock and larger-than-stock tires (speak to an instructor for questions about your rig). Similar to the Adventurers Course.
Day 3: Recovery Course with hands on training for safe and effective use of winch, Hi-lift and straps. Actual rollover recovery demo with our Toyota 4-Runner “Candy!"
