While stars like Justin Bieber, Alessandra Ambrosio, and Gigi Hadid opted to spend their holiday under sun-kissed palm trees, a roster of A-list celebs packed on the layers and instead prepared to frolic in freshly fallen snow. Kylie Jenner, for instance, joined her #girlsquad for a cozy ski trip that we’re sure required plenty of endurance as she carved down the slopes like a pro (video, below)— while also making time for one major selfie (above).

Proving to be the megawatt model that she is, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley also hopped on the slopes to pose for a breathless shot, while Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke channeled her inner nature lover. Below, see how other stars took on their winter wonderlands.

Kylie Jenner zipped down a mountain like a pro.

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley still managed to look svelte in a full winter getup.

Emilia Clarke hilariously hopped aboard a husky-driven sled.

Always one to be stylish, Mariah Carey welcomed the cold in nothing but Dior boots.

Kate Hudson overlooked snow-topped mountains after an afternoon hike.

1989 crooner Taylor Swift proudly showcased the snowman she made with beau Calvin Harris.

Thankfully, Harris provided a better look.

In this adorable snap, Bella Hadid and mom Yolanda Foster pose for a selfie while on a ski lift.

Model Jessica Hart practiced safety first with a full, ski-appropriate ensemble that included a helmet.

We're sure Diane Kruger hit the slopes after receiving a set of skis from Chanel.
