This Woman Went Skiing In The USA While Wearing A Saree. We Love Everything About This!
The first and last time I wore a saree was at my 10th-grade farewell in school. I didn’t enjoy the party at all. Not because I was grief-stricken over leaving school but because I was terrified of having a wardrobe malfunction right in the middle of the auditorium. However, after watching women do perfect backflips and playing cricket in sarees, I am beginning to change my mind about never wearing one again. I mean, who can forget Eshna Kutty’s hula hoop rendition of ‘Genda Phool’ in a saree? As Chandler Bing would say, that was perfection. And now, adding to that list of influences is this woman who went skiing in a saree. Shocked? So am I.
Divya Maiya and her partner Madhu are based in Minnesota, USA. Recently the couple decided to go skiing on the slopes at Welch Village. However, they wanted to add a desi twist to their day in the snow. So instead of wearing skiing clothes, Divya donned a saree while Madu put on a dhoti.

One might think that wearing a saree while skiing is uncomfortable and well, not feasible. But with the way Divya just glides through the snow, it seems like saree’s are the perfect clothing for the activity. The couple shared a video of them skiing in their traditional clothes and captioned it, “We needed to do something really crazy today to distract ourselves!”
In the post, Divya credits Masoom Minawala Mehta, Harini Sekar, and Dolly Jain for the inspiration. It was only last month that fashion influencer Masoom Minawala Mehta shared a video of herself skiing while wearing a saree in Switzerland.
Maybe the day we go skiing, we’ll be inspired by Divya and ski while wearing a saree. She makes it look so effortless and we can’t get enough!
