Off-Road Driving School and Events in Ellenville & Hunter, New York
“Knowledgeable and friendly guides, beautiful trails, and just an overall well run company! Come check them out! ”
– Ben G. (Google Review) Feb 2020 Driving Essentials & Snow Trail Class
COVID-19 Update: As a small business, Team NORA appreciates your support and shares everyone’s concern to stop the spread of COVID-19. We are adhering to Gov Cuomo’s “New York State on PAUSE” executive order, “Effective at 8PM on Sunday, March 22, all non-essential businesses statewide will be closed”
Our driving experiences have social distancing already built-in. Most of the day is spent inside your vehicle slowly driving on obstacle courses and trails. Our instructors and guides walk alongside coaching and offering lessons along the way. For these reasons and current guidance we are hopeful we will re-start classes in late April and are leaving our online registration open.
The safety of our guests and staff remains priority one. We’ve modified our public driving classes to eliminate indoor class time where you learn about 4WD systems, off-road terrain and driving safety. That module is now held under our outdoor pavilion using a projection screen. Students can sit outside or remain in their vehicles while the instructor’s headset transmits to your FM radio, similar to a drive-in movie. Guests have access to indoor restrooms which will be sanitized before, during and after class. Private training and tours are available any day of the week.
We recognize the importance of outdoor recreation to relieve stress, anxiety and get back to ‘normal’ times. We love teaching our students how to responsibly and safely take 4×4 vehicles to places they were purposely built to go. We are adding more Ellenville classes and Hunter Mountain tours to our schedule starting in May to get you, your families and your rigs out on the trails. If we can’t run a class or tour due to government restrictions we will give you at least 72 hours notice and give you options to move to another one. Thanks again, be well and we hope to see you soon. -Scott & Jon
