An entertaining film for all those who ski, want to ski, or wouldn't be seen dead near a ski-slope. It follows the fortunes of two sets of skiers - a group of accident-prone beginners in S6U (known as the Benidorm of the ski-slopes) and members of the aristocratic and exclusive Downhill Only Club in the faded elegance of Wengen. As well as following the dramas and disasters of the ski-slopes, the film features some of the more uninhibited aspects of life apres ski.
