Winter is usually the hibernation time for super cars. Or rather it used to be.

These days with all kinda of clever DSG transmission and computer-controlled diffs, electronic stability programs, and sophisticated four-wheel-drive systems at hand, you can drive a 700hp supercar on snow and ice with no drama at all.

Although the cars can handle tricky conditions, the owner might rather keep them locked in the garage during the winter. You see, the car might be up to the task, but the owners usually aren’t.

That’s why more and more car makers are offering winter driving programs. It’s like going on a lavish ski holiday, expect you play with the car, on a purpose-built ice track, and under supervision of skilled instructors. It’s a bit pricey – $7,800 in Lamborghini’s case – but totally worth it.

Here’s some pictures from Lamborghini Academy winter driving event at Auronzo track in Cortina d’Ampezzo, Italy.

It’s an odd sight though, a wide and low super car like the Aventador on snow.
