Ivanka Trump got to crush some powder on Monday morning, with the the 35-year-old ski bunny hitting the slopes in Aspen while on vacation with her family.
The first daughter was photographed shredding down the mountain early in the day, outfitted in a white jacket-and-gray jacket, charcoal-colored ski leggings and a black helmet and goggles for her safety.
She was joined by daughter Arabella on a few of the runs, with the five-year-old already looking like a season pro as she showcased her french fry and pizza moves while skiing alongside her mom.
The pair then met up with another mother-daughter duo as well, with Vanessa Trump and nine-year-old daughter Kai also taking a few runs with Ivanka and Arabella.
Arabella was later seen enjoying an ice cream cone as she and her mom went to go meet up with three-year-old Joseph, who was off on his own ski lesson.
The proud mother later posted a photo of her two snow bunnies on Instagram, writing: ‘Exhausted little skiers! #springbreak.’

Jared Kushner was having a far less exciting day back home in Washington DC on Monday, where it was back to work after spending the first half of the weekend with his wife and their three children.
Ivanka and the children could not leave until after sundown on Saturday as the family observes Shabbat.
Jared was photographed leaving for the White House on Monday at around 8am, emerging from the basement of the family’s $5.5million rental home and glancing in both directions before darting into his waiting SUV.
A Secret Service agent joined him in the waiting vehicle, stepping of the home about a minute prior to his boss while carrying a black leather weekender bag that appeared to belong to Jared.

It was not a great day at work either for Jared or his boss, President Donald Trump, with FBI Director James Comey testifying in front of the House Intelligence Committee.
Comey made it very clear during his testimony that he had ‘no information’ to back up President Trump’s claims that Barack Obama wiretapped the phones at his eponymous tower on New York’s Fifth Avenue.
That was not all either, with Comey also testifying that there had been an active counter-intelligence investigation into claims of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian intelligence since last July.
Jared did not join President Trump at his rally in Louisville later in the day on Monday, suggesting that he could be heading off to Aspen, or just back home.

Monday was a much better day for the rest of the Trump family, with Ivanka’s brother Eric announcing that he and wife Lara were expecting their first child later this year.
Ivanka congratulated the couple on Twitter soon after, writing: ‘Congratulations @EricTrump & @LaraLeaTrump! We’re so excited for you both. You’ll be incredible parents & we cant wait to meet our nephew!’
It was also baby brother Barron’s birthday, with the fifth grade student turning 11 and celebrating with her mother Melania in New York City.
And it was a big day for Ivanka, with the announcement that she would be getting her own office in the White House.
It is a big step forward in her highly visible role in her father’s administration, where she has been serving as his proxy for the past two months.
That role expanded in a big way last week when she joined Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in New York City for a Broadway opening and, most notably, when she arranged a roundtable discussion on worker productivity this past Friday between President Trump and Angela Merkel.
Ivanka arranged that event, with took place at the White House, at the request of the German chancellor and sat by her side during the discussion.

The new White House office will allow Ivanka to be closer to husband Jared and, like her husband, she will continue to not accept a salary for her work.
The White House also continued to maintain that Ivanka would not have an official role in the administration during the announcement of her new work space on Monday.
Ivanka was photographed on Sunday enjoying a little bit of shopping and some lunch with her brother Donald Jr. and sister-in-law Vanessa, with the group hitting up Club Monaco after grabbing some grub at Ajax Tavern.
The group opted for a casual look during their day out, with Ivanka outfitted in a black tracksuit and pair of Pumas while Vanessa looked as if she had just stepped out of a Cabela’s catalog in her camouflage coat.
Donald Jr. meanwhile had on his Oakley apres-ski pullover with a spider-web design under a pair of suspended ski pants.
At one point she seemed shocked by something going on in the distance
Ivanka even took the time to wave to other people enjoying the slopes
Eric and Lara stayed at home, perhaps with their eight neices and nephews to get ready for their own baby boy that is on the way.
Lara posted a photo on Monday to announce her baby news that showed her standing the middle of a snowy field next to her husband and holding their two dogs.
Given the fact that the temperature has reached the 60s in Aspen over the past few days while New York was pelted with snow last week, it seems likely the two may have taken the photo before the trip at the Trump family’s estate in Westchester.
The two were not spotted out and about on Monday, and Don Jr also seemed to be layting low one day after his 5-year-old son Tristan broke his leg while skiing.
Ivanka lent a helping hand after the accident by taking the seven other children out for some ice cream.
Don Jr. also got vocal on Twitter and Instagram on Monday afternoon when comedian Chelsea Handler went after his baby brother Eric and wife Lara when they shared their baby news.
‘I guess one of @realdonaldtrump’s sons is expecting a new baby. Just what we need. Another person with those jeans. Let’s hope for a girl,’ wrote Handler.
Don Jr. fired back soon after, writing: ‘Jeans??? I guess I’m not at all surprised… but really?!?! #genes’
He then got a bit more heated on Instagram while addressing Handler’s tweet, writing: ‘Attacking the announcement of someone’s first pregnancy would seem below the belt to most, but sadly that’s no longer the case.
‘As to the “hoping it’s a girl” comment, I wonder if she knows that said “jeans” (aka genes) are passed from the same people whether it’s a girl or a boy??? Based on what I’ve seen… probably not. So much for the party of science.’
Handler later responded by writing: ‘Sorry about spelling mistake. I meant “genes,” not “jeans.” I’m a little stoned. What’s your excuse?’
Visitors in Aspen also seem to be less than thrilled with the Trumps, with one New York City resident on vacation at the ski resort this week telling Vanity Fair: ‘They’re everywhere. There are so many of them.’
She then added: ‘Everyone is complaining. Everyone is annoyed.”
