“THANK YOU NORA
If you are on the fence about trying a NORA class or one of their other outings just go do it. I’ve been off-roading all my life and after attending the beginner class, advanced class, and the Hunter Mountain Tour, I can honestly say I’ve gained an abundance of information and skills from the NORA crew. If you’re a beginner and or apprehensive about taking your vehicle off road don’t be. The NORA crew is not going to let anything happen to you or your vehicle. If you have an advanced skill set, they have a great play ground with lots of great obstacles and courses. They run a 5 star service and is the crew I would want to be with on any off road outing!.” – Tony P, Trip Advisor, Nov 2017
