PARTICIPANT POLICY + GUIDELINES
Our goal at Twin Mountain Off-Road Adventure is for all participants to leave our facility with a solid understanding of how to safely and effectively navigate obstacles off-road in a manner that protects both the vehicle and the environment, and that you feel confident in your driving abilities.
In order to achieve that goal, we have no judgment in all our classes. There is no question too basic or simple to ask. We take a supportive approach to understanding vehicles and what you need to know about them.
Exclusively Women classes can be scheduled upon request to create an environment of safety and support for the participants.
(Please note, all classes will still have a male instructor.)
For all-day classes, we welcome you to bring a picnic or something from a local restaurant as we do not have on-site food.
Classes are rain or shine. Check the weather for OLD fields WV 26845 prior to leaving. Certain practice/trail aspects may not be available in inclement weather.
Please dress appropriately for outdoor and/or trail activities. We require Closed-toe shoes and recommend bringing sunscreen.
Children & Young Drivers
Children younger than age 14 are welcome to attend any class free. If a child’s behavior becomes problematic, the participant will be expected to take corrective action, continued disturbance may result in being asked to leave the site.
Children without learners’ permits or under permit age who wish to participate must drive their parents’ vehicle with a parent in the vehicle.
Young adults ages 14 and up who wish to participate will be counted (and treated) as adult students for pricing purposes.
