  • Description

    Snow sports. Location of events unknown.

    Sports. Skiing. Shot looking toward steep slope of ski jump. A skier at the bottom moves to right. Then a skier comes flying down; lands on slope; and skis up toward camera. Shots from different angles of jumpers. One wipes out and seems to disappear in the snow Cool CU shot looking up at the very steep wooden ramp built at the top of the slope; a skier comes down it preparing for the jump.

    Then a shot of skier flying through the air; over spectators' heads. Another LS of the jump; another skier jumps and comes sliding up the slope toward camera. Shot from the other direction -- shot from the top of the ramp as the skier goes down it and sails off into the air; trees at the side CU skier; in wool cap; nods at the camera; smiles. Daredevil; stunts; scary.
