• Short Summary

    People enjoy toboggans and curling in the French mountain resort of Chamonix.

  • Description

    Full title reads: "France. Happy hearts and tingling cheeks in the brilliant sunshine and exhilarating mountain air makes one envy winter holidaymakers at Chamonix!"

    Chamonix, France.

    Nice shots of men riding toboggans or sledges down a snow covered hill side. They appear to be in some kind of organised race rather than just having fun. POV shot from front of toboggan as it speeds downhill. More LS of mountains around Chamonix and more shots of tobogganists.

    Shots of people playing curling. Nice shots of this game being played outdoors.
