    Hartmanswillerkopf, France

    World War One. Sports. The Alpine Chasseurs ski patrol; on the 'Hartmanswillerkopf'. They seem to ski mostly in a Nordic 'cross-country' style. Dressed in white trousers, white tunics and white berets; for camouflage in the snow. Shot of the team skiing down a path with almost vertical wall of mountain; with some snow-covered pines; behind them. The skiers coming one by one around a curve past some little cabin - nice shot. Another shot of skiers coming out of trees; skiing down slope in open. Not sure of their primary role; whether they're a rescue team or if they lean more toward reconnaissance. Cool looking though and fun; fast; etc.

    Note for spelling purposes also: Hartmannsweilerkopf, Hartmanswillerkepf
