Move over travelling the world in a sari—influencers are now wearing them to ski.

If you were to go skiing, I believe you would go looking for your snow boots and ski pants and fleece jackets. But Divya Maiya and partner Madhu Bangalore went a step ahead—in their viral video where they ski down a slope, the couple can be seen donning traditional Indian wear! While Divya is seen draped in a turquoise blue saree with a gold border, Madhu sports a matching silk shirt with a white veshti!

The short clip shows the couple straighten out their outfits a bit and adjust their helmets before launching into the joyride, gently swaying with their outfits fluttering against the frosty backdrop. Be it showcasing their roots or overcoming the outfit limitations associated with the sport, the couple does it with aplomb. The video was shot at the Welch Village resort in Minnesota, USA.
