  • Short Summary

    Fun and healthy exercise on the snowy slopes of the Jungfrau.

  • Description

    Item title reads: "Alpine Sports in the shadow of the Jungfrau. Wengen holds its annual snow contests... and the kiddies are not forgotten."

    Wengen, Switzerland

    L/S snowy mountain slopes with skiers. Skaters do a 'catch the train' style race - taking off jackets and hats and picking them up and putting them on as they race round a circuit and get 'home'. Children make their way up the slopes with ungainly herringbone steps and they ski down, mostly falling over. The children pose for the camera. and wave.

    Note : Fun item about snowy leisure time.
