We blame "The Dukes of Hazzard". The formative years of our youth were spent soaking up images of a 1969 Dodge Charger blasting through fences, careening through fields and generally powering over terrain no street vehicle was ever meant to endure. Since then, we've had a soft spot for high-horsepower cars frolicking in places they have no business frolicking. That's exactly why find footage of the Ferrari California going all out in the snow so compelling. Whereas there are plenty of Ferrari owners who wouldn't so much as submit their pride and joy to a light rain, images of the Italian Exotic pounding over uneven snow are the kind that bring a smile to our faces.

Ferrari shot this footage at the company's test track in St. Moritz. Apparently, Ferrari Switzerland gathered a few owners for some fun on the powder. Color us jealous. Hit the jump to check out all of the beautiful sideways action for yourself.

      First video (Ok make that official video) I have seen of a non FF (4wd) Ferrari sliding in the snow. Unfortunately, the low amount of grip means that while it's drifting, it also seems like it barely manages to go 20mph, a super slow motion drift that can be done with virtually anything with 4 wheels on snow.

      We use to do better in my friends Chevy Lumina back in high school. That is one fun thing about Minnesota in the winter I suppose. That video SHOULD have been a lot more entertaining.

      Now if they would've just teamed up with the local polar bear club, we would've seen some tops down during the drifting.
