New Years Eve Weekend always brings out a ton of celebrities out to the ski resorts. Pop icon Madonna was out skiing with friends and family in the Swiss Alps on Saturday, December 29th, 2012. The world renowned singer hit the bunny hill in Gstaad, Switzerland, where she attempted to get her ski legs in check.

While we commend her efforts, it would seem Madonna's dance moves on the stage do not translate to the slopes. The singer skiied “Like a Virgin”, falling repeatedly as she struggled t

o make it down the trail.

The photo of her faceplant has already gone viral. While the look of anguish on Madonna's face is mildly entertaining, we can't help but feel a little bummed out for her. Everyone knows there is nothing worse than getting discouraged when you are just starting out skiing or snowboarding. Remember, there is no substitute for taking ski lessons from a certified instructor.
