    And just when you think the banning of the pit and dart girls has finally removed sexism from sport...

    No. Went with school to Italy and hated it. Granted I was rubbish and couldn’t do it for toffee but when the trip was over I never wanted to try to learn again. SWMBO mentions it every now and then but she can go with someone else if she’s that bothered about, ive no interest whatsoever.

    Ski technology has come on a lot since you'd have tried it, much easier to get the hand of on modern skis rather than the old straight ones you'd have been on when at school. If someone like me can get the hang of it then it must be easy.

    I'm with Ant on the skiing issue, it's one of those things - if you're not into it, you're not into it.

    If I wanted to pay to go on holiday only to keep falling over into piles of 'fresh powder', I'd go back to Amsterdam

    So? I really couldn’t care less. Tried it, didn’t like it, have no desire to try it again, regardless of how much the skis have improved.

    Does Mrs Ant say you ought to have a go at the ski “for me” ?
