“Motorcycling shares a spirit similar to that of skiing and snowboarding, one of adrenaline and a love of the outdoors,” said Jason Chinnock, Chief Executive Officer of Ducati North America. “Partnering on Warren Miller’s newest film, alongside Volkswagen, was an excellent opportunity to show how versatile Ducati motorcycles can be, all-year-round.”

Audiences will witness Ducati’s Multistrada 950 in action during an epic journey along Beartooth Highway through Montana and Wyoming, as athletes Kalen Thorien and Mike “Bird” Shaffer chase the snow in search of the ultimate rush.
