Ashley Graham and Lindsey Vonn are hitting the slopes together. What more could we ask for? The supermodel, who made history on the cover of the 2016 SI Swimsuit issue, tapped the Olympic alpine skier to teach her how to make her way down the snowy white mountain, and the behind the scenes vlog is just too good not to share.

The women began their adventure at the bunny slopes, surrounded by tons of little kids. Graham, 36, donned a white snow suit, while Vonn, 39, went with a darker ensemble. Both completed their looks with a helmet, goggles and ski poles.

“You look so much cooler than me,” Graham, a mom of three, said to the 82-time World Cup winner. Vonn had her name emblazoned on her helmet, while Graham had a sticker (with her name spelled incorrectly) plastered on the back of her own headgear. Graham’s husband, Justin Ervin, even joined in on the lesson.

“O.K. kids, are you ready to go?” Vonn jokingly asked while adjusting Ervin’s goggles.

“Ready mom, ready,” Graham responded in a high-pitched voice. She filmed a 360-degree view and was totally in awe of the pristine white view, massive mountains and sky-high pine trees. Vonn filmed Graham from behind as she instructed her to go from “pizza” to a “little french fry” motion to slowly make her way down the mountain.

She also told the Nebraska native to stand taller in some moments, bend her knees in others and always be careful

“Perfect. Crushing it,” Vonn, who was featured in the ’10, ’16 and ’19 SI Swimsuit Issues, applauded.
