  • Description

    Full titles read: "World Ski-ing record broken - by Villeumier of Switzerland in International Championship contests at Pontresina ..... with marvellous leap of 240 feet!"

    Pontresina, Switzerland.

    L/S of crowds of people on skis and in horse-drawn sleighs, making their way across the snow to the competition area in the Swiss mountains. Several L/Ss show competitors coming down a long ski-jump; nice M/S shows a group of men looking astonished as they watch someone skiing past on the jump. Various L/Ss in slow motion of men taking huge leaps from the ski-jumps - very effective! They look like they're flying.
