The government is coming under increasing pressure to ban the use of ski equipment in towns and cities.
The move comes after the country was hit by yet another blanket of snow, prompting a host of ski enthusiasts to to get their gear out.
But this has been met with a backlash from all sections of society, with many branding the skiers 'pretentious', 'big-headed' and 'fucking annoying'.
The coalition government is now set to respond to the public disdain by introducing emergency legislation which could be presented to parliament as early as next week.
The new law would make it punishable by up to three years in prison if caught ski-ing in a town or city.
Ivor Biggun, who has been campaigning for the new ban on urban ski-ing, said: 'There's nothing worse than seeing some twit ski-ing to the office in a city centre, even though he only lives a mile away and there's about an inch of snow.
'This is the UK we live in, not bloody Scandinavia. They're just a bunch of pretentious show-offs.
'Ooh, look at you, aren't you great, you're in the city but your on skis! Oh my god, it's like up is down and down is up - you're crazy cool, man.'
After taking some time to calm down, Mr Biggun added: 'Why don't they just get the bus like the rest of the world?'
A spokesman for the government said the coalition was ready to do pretty much anything to get people off their cases.
