It would seem these penguins have been p-p-picking up some tips from top snowboarder Shaun White going by the way they hit the slopes in these amazing pictures.

With their matching black penguin suits and snazzy yellow bills the bodacious birds appear to be lining up for the latest thrill.
However, these are no ski bums; instead they're off to stock up on food after a mammoth babysitting session.
After fasting for up to 42 days these Macaroni penguins are taking a run down to the Atlantic Ocean on the island of South Georgia in order to fatten up once again.
Macaroni Penguins spend the vast majority of the year at sea, only coming ashore in order to moult or mate.

The Penguin Camera is located on Torgersen Island (64°46’S, 64°04’W), off the coast of Anvers Island and less than a mile from Palmer Station. Torgersen Island is home to a colony of Adélie penguins numbering approximately 2,500. This camera is seasonal and operates primarily from October to February, the Adélie breeding season. The camera is solar-powered and may sometimes experience brief outages due to inclement weather. School classrooms and other educational demonstrations will often take control of the camera, moving it to gain better views of the colony.
