It is Chelsea Handler's birthday, meaning not only is she a year older, but more importantly, she's brought back her annual tradition of skiing down a snowy mountain wearing only a bikini. 

The former Chelsea Lately host rang in her 49th birthday on February 25, and promptly treated fans to her wildest bikini video yet.

Plus this time around, while ski gear was nowhere in sight, she did have her dogs as company – and some liquid courage – who she had skiing down with her.

WATCH: Chelsea Handler's 2023 Bikini Birthday Tradition

Chelsea took to Instagram Sunday to share the latest rendition of the annual video, simultaneously giving a master class on multitasking.

In the cheeky clip, she appears wearing a bright blue bikini paired with a rainbow knit beanie and purple socks, though almost stealing her spotlight was one of her dogs, who was hoisted on a backpack wearing their own goggles, as her other dog trailed behind them.

Still, the dogs were far from the only eyebrow-raising accessories, and Chelsea is also seen in the clips holding a drink in one hand and a joint in the other.

"Multitasking on my 49th!" she wrote in her caption, and the comments section under the post was quickly flooded with countless compliments and birthday messages from plenty of her celebrity friends.

HBD," and Melanie Griffith also wrote: "Happy Birthday Chelsea!! You beautiful, bikini clad, smoking hot, Wild Wonderful Woman!! Have a magnificent day!!"

For her 48th birthday last year, Chelsea similarly expertly skied – and drank and smoked – down moguls, wearing a strapless bikini with the Canadian and American flag on it.

Moreover, in response to former Fox News host Tucker Carlson and far-right pundit Ben Shapiro's comments over her childfree status, she shared another bikini-clad, mid-mountain photo at the time, and aptly wrote: "This one's for you, Tucker!"
