This is so funny. I am dying to see the rest!

Monkeymonstermum Wed 24-Jan-18 16:06:46

And this is why we take our children skiing!
Brilliant!

Thank you OP, that's So funny.

MissWilmottsGhost Wed 24-Jan-18 17:00:06

What? What's so funny?

Looks just like the first time DH and I went skiing.

DH is not called Kevin grin

HamishBamish Wed 24-Jan-18 17:05:37

Poor Kevin! It's definitely better to learn when you're young that's for sure!

DereksGotATail Wed 24-Jan-18 17:07:08

This is hilarious and more or less the same as our GoPro footage grin

Quartz2208 Wed 24-Jan-18 17:13:27

Oh god it reminds me of the times I have attempted to ski - even with the failing to get off the chairlift bit and falling off the ski lift.

its funny but definitely reinforces my idea I am never doing it again

Humphriescushion Wed 24-Jan-18 17:22:28

Brought back some memories for me! The heart stopping fear of getting off the ski lift!

SealSong Wed 24-Jan-18 17:26:36

That is why I will NEVER try skiiing! All my worst concerns confirmed! grin

I too want to know what happened next, particularly to poor Kevin who was propelled by the chair lift smacking him on the arse to start speeding down the slope...I fear it didn't end well.

I want to see the snowboarding version...

Susan packs her trousers with cardboard after yesterday's lesson to protect her coccyx.

Jane holds on for dear life while being dragged on her knees up the slope on the the drag lift as the humiliation of attempting it again is too much.

After an auspicious start, Kate seems ready to take on the higher slopes. After sliding down a good portion of the mountain head first and narrowly avoiding sliding off the edge, she takes the opportunity of lying face down in the snow for a while feigning severe injury while the other beginners catch up, before being ready to face the next section.

As the class hobble to the bar after the class, they stick together in a huddle avoiding the skiers as only beginner snowboarders can understand what it is like out there on a board.

By the end of the week the group had mastered the basics with only some sprained wrists, bruised knees and mild concussion between them. They are all keen to come again next year.

Ah I loved this programme, remember it from the 80s. I'm sure it inspired me to go skiing.

lizkt Wed 24-Jan-18 20:10:31

Ps. It's worth watching the whole thing - it's more like a class commentary on skiing. The posh people who go to Wengen vs the 'common peeps' going to Soll.

What happens to the woman stuck on the chair lift!!?

Shnazzyshot Tue 06-Feb-18 16:27:08

Haha so funny grin anyone know where I can watch the whole thing or what the program is called?

Raaaaaah Wed 14-Feb-18 13:28:25

Canny watch with sound on as baby sleeping but weeping with laughter. Currently on my first ski holiday and i’m In beginners group lesson and we are just like this. We spend our days contorted in piles or shrieking on ski lifts but we laugh so much.

SheepAreSuper Wed 14-Feb-18 20:10:40

I can't see it either user but I'm guessing it's On The Piste (its on YouTube). It's hilarious.

UnimaginativeNameChange1 Wed 14-Feb-18 20:20:58

Oh god. This was me last year. And will be me again in a couple of weeks. Why does DH enjoy it??? Where is the emoji with the hands over the eyes?!
