Catch up on your ski lingo
Heading off for a ski holiday this season?

As well as wearing the latest ski or snowboard gear and looking cool on the slopes, you may want to impress your mates with the local lingo.

If you are heading to France, Italy, Spain, Germany or Austria, BBC Languages can help you.

On the languages website there is a section dedicated to ski phrases, including asking what the snow conditions are like, telling someone they are a poser or asking for the nearest bar for a bit of après ski refreshment.

So if you want to look and sound good on the piste click on to the BBC Languages website.
