Comedian and actress Chelsea Handler celebrated her 46th birthday on Thursday by going skiing topless at Whistler.
She shared a fun video set to Daft Punk’s “One More Time” where she smiled and sipped a drink while cruising down Lower Merlin’s run.
“It’s important to stay hydrated as well as relaxed, and it’s also important to celebrate your body no matter what age or size,” she said in her Instagram caption.
Handler sported Canadian and American flags on her ski helmet, explaining the two nations are the countries she feels the strongest ties to.
“I’m learning that no matter what country I’m in, I like to take my clothes off and smile,” she said.
In honour of her birthday, she asked fans to consider making a donation to Can’d Aid to help Texans dealing with power outages and water shortages following unseasonable winter storms.
“Giving is living,” she said.
Handler has been working in Canada for the last couple months, she explained in a previous Instagram post. She’s here on a work visa and “following all the mandatory quarantine rules.”
Living in Whistler has given her a newfound appreciation for skiing, mountains, and the power of Mother Nature, she said.
