Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

I just watched the BBC Program "On the Piste" on Youtube but its in individual mini episodes. Its the funniest program about skiing I've ever seen. I watched it 1st time around in 1987
Has anyone got it on DVD would love to have a copy? If so contact Julie - Yorkshire jsm2306@hotmail.com

Please let me know if anyone has a copy digitised or on DVD. This is my last chance. I'm at my wits' end. Only a few clips are in good quality on YouTube and this has been the only thing able to cheer up my mother after her beloved pet died. I can't even write to the BBC because their automated contact system won't accept questions about shows older than a year.

For all you young people out there believe it or not this program was a turning point in the way skiing was perceived and changed the perception of the sport from being something that that just rich posh people did into something that ordinary people could do. It inspired us to take our first ski holiday and apart from the covid loss last year we have not missed a year since.

Laugh all you like but it was a revelation.

Kevin proved i was not the only twit on the slopes, the pic is me in 1987 totally unprepared for a skiing holiday, i had a leather bomber jacket, denim jeans, and a wooly hat knitted by my mum....those were the days.

It wasn't at the time. Probably 405 lines, maybe even 625 which was the best available.

The current video quality doesn't detract from the impact of the program at the time.

A seminal programme for me. My first skiing holiday was in Soll, and I ended up living in Wengen. Bravo @Timc, for posting the YouTube links.

I first went skiing in 1989. Bought my first proper ski jacket on my 18th ski trip, in 2005. Just used my hill walking stuff with basic saloppettes up till then.
