Winter is officially here — and depending on your tolerance for the freezing cold, that means it’s also ski season. The snowy slopes feel like one of the few places a celebrity can blend in and evade the cameras, which is why vacationing at the most exclusive resorts around the world has been a decades-long pastime for the fabulous and wealthy. We also imagine the humbling act of balancing two feet atop icy hills gives them an odd thrill. In the spirit of the season, we’ve collected some fantastic photos of pop culture icons hitting the slopes that will hopefully inspire you to strap on a pair of skis. Enjoy the vintage fashions and stunning surroundings, below.
