The duo hit the powder together, and came up with a potential new sport.

Both Lindsey Vonn and Shaun White can be found on the slopes for most of the winter. But, somehow, their countless hours and days of skiing and snowboarding, respectively, have never seen the pair get together for a joint session. That is, until now.

The iconic duo just teamed up for a bluebird day on the slopes and the way they chose to spend it has to be seen to be believed. Rather than just racing down the slopes as we might expect them to do, the athletic pair took the chance to perfect an unusual new technique.

In a comical video that Vonn posted to her Instagram, she put their latest trick on display. With White laying on his stomach with his knees bent up behind him creating a sort of seat with his snowboard, Vonn sat down on his board and began pushing them down the mountain with her skis. After a number of seconds of the pro snowboarder sliding down the slopes on his stomach, the former alpine skier stood up and came to a stop, turning around with a laugh to give her partner a hug.

“When you finally get to ski/snowboard with @shaunwhite this is what happens...” she wrote in the caption of the reel. “did we just create a new team sport?!”

We think it’s safe to say they have the sort of influence needed to create a new sport, so the trend might just catch on.
