    Ski jumping competition held on indoor slope at Boston Winter Gardens.

  • Description

    Indoor skiing at Boston Winter Gardens, United States of America.

    Various shots of ski jumping competition held inside large arena. Skiers ski down massive slope covered in what appears to be real snow. We see the skiers waiting to jump in cramped space at top of slope, the head's nearly touching the ceiling. We see one of the skiers crashing into a bank of hay at the bottom of the slope, another comes down dressed as a clown (he loses one of his skies on the way!). A crowd watches from grandstands.
