In keeping with tradition, last week Ducati
and Ferrari teamed up to host its annual Wrooom ski meeting high in the Italian Dolomites. The main reason behind the event is to introduce Ducati’s new ’12-spec Desmosedici MotoGP racebike as well as have a little fun in the snow. This time however, Ducati failed to introduce the new machine for unknown reasons. Expect to see it in action during the upcoming Malaysia pre-season test in a few weeks’ time. Until then here are some photos from the event:

For Wrooom Ducati fabricated this custom one-off snowmobile. Just kidding; it’s a Bombardier.
Valentino Rossi the modern Renaissance man: shreds anything and everything.
