In time with her real action movie premier, Barbie, everyone’s beloved doll, visited Perisher Ski Resort, Australia. Someone at Perisher’s PR department clearly had a lot of fun with this and we thought we’d share some screenshots with our readers.

Perisher resort posted on their Instagram story a series of six photos and videos of a Barbie doll snowboarding around the resort.
The Barbie doll was dressed up for a day of snowboarding, with a white helmet with the iconic barbie logo, a colourful pink and blue patterned ski jacket and aqua-blue pants. With her pink snowboard, white boots, pink gloves and a pink scarf the iconic doll was ready to hit the slopes.
“She’s here 💅” reads Perisher’s first picture of the Barbie doll in the snow up to her knees and waving, ready to hit the Australian snow.
After her warm-up runs Barbie is ready to hit the jumps, Barbie send it and goes for a cork-7, getting massive air from her launch but unfortunately losing her snowboard mid flight. Luckily, Barbie performs the trick seamlessly a second time with her Snowboard attached and lands perfectly.
After a long day of snowboarding Barbie is ready to go home, the last video shows Barbie riding the Skitube back.
