Madonna has taken up skiing on a winter sports holiday with three of her children.

The Vogue singer was spotted on the slopes in Gstaad, Switzerland, with Lourdes, Mercy James and David Banda, although son Rocco wasn't pictured.

According to the Daily Mail, Madonna looked like a beginner as she was snapped learning the basic move of snow ploughing on the nursery slope with an instructor.

But Lourdes, 17, took to snowboarding naturally and Madonna posted a photo of her in snow gear on Instagram captioned: "Snow Bunny is DONE!"

Mother and daughter both wore all black ensembles for their ski trip, while younger children David and Mercy were more colourful in blue and pink snow suits.

The singer was also pictured riding a chair lift with David, Mercy and a ski instructor.
