Rapper-turned-actor Snoop Dogg has dreams of becoming a champion skier.

THE WASH star is hoping to add downhill skier to his impressive resume because he has always dreamed of being cool on the piste.

He says, "I wanna be like one of the first black great skiers.

"I would have to have my posse with me just in case I take a fall - they could help me break that fall.

"I was on a snowboard but I couldn't control it. I was like, 'What am I supposed to do?' It just didn't work for me."
