    Men have their bottoms painted with paraffin then slide down a snowy mountain.

  • Description

    Titles read: "Just Backsliders!"

    United States of America.

    General scenic view of the mountainous and snowy Rainier National Park. We see various shots of workers having their backsides painted with paraffin (they are wearing trousers). They then have a board put between their bottoms and their trousers and the fabric is pressed with an iron.

    L/S of the men sitting one behind the other on the snow and sliding down the mountain, without a toboggan! Reverse footage shows them sliding back up the mountain.
