Madonna suffers a series of falls while skiing on Swiss Alps

New York, Jan. 1 (ANI): Madonna looked like a novice skier, who had touched the ski slopes for the very first time, as she took several spills during a trip to a Swiss Alps resort.

The 54-year-old singer, who is currently spending New Year's Eve in a tony chalet in the exclusive resort town of Gstaad, Switzerland, with her daughters and much younger boyfriend, donned sleek black ski jacket, pants and a matching helmet to go native.

But as her 25-year-old toyboy boyfriend Brahim Zaibat looked on, the pop diva fell several times on the mostly flat trail- the bunny slope, the New York Daily News reported.

In one particularly awkward moment, she landed face down in the snow with her legs splaid and a clearly unhappy look on her face.

Her 16-year-old daughter, Lourdes, fared much better, staying upright on a snowboard, as she navigated down more advanced trails with several friends.

Six-year-old Mercy, who Madonna adopted from Mali in 2009, also enjoyed the family's break on the slopes, getting a private instructor help her down the bunny slope. (ANI)
