LR's been doing that for (I think) a couple of years now. An offroad driving school has been offered at the Equinox for as long as I can remember--at one point they were using Toyota's (gulp).

Its actually a good intro day/weekend program, and I think similar to other LREs around the country. I have a friend who is going to this particular one in late Feb so I can get some feedback.

I did a day there years ago but I hear they have greatly improved and expanded the terrain it covers since then.

My wife and I did a four hour lesson there in September. We were there the week LR was having the NA introduction to the press. So many 2010 Land Rovers, but not one that I could drive :( This location was a LR location quite some time ago and then were disaffiliated and they were using Hummers and then in 2008 went back to an affiliation with LR.

The lesson was good. We had already done a full day at the Biltmore so we didn't have to do a lot of the walk around and preliminary stuff. We went right to their course and did some driving. We then went to some "roads" for some offroad driving. These "roads" were on the navigation but no way was a car driving on these roads! We drove up what looked to be spring runoff areas. It was a ton of fun and we had a great time. I would do it again.

Mwar,
If you happen to go up there other times, and you may have done this already, but there are a bunch of class 4 roads all over southern VT which can be quite entertaining.

If you haven't, get a good local map and look for the dashed lines. Most can be done with street tires as long as its not mud season or in the winter.

I have not done that, but am quite interested in doing that in the future.
