  • Short Summary

    Sledging, ski jumping and ice hockey in Switzerland.

  • Description

    St. Moritz, Switzerland.

    Now the eagerly awaited snow has fallen in Switzerland - the world's winter playground.

    M/S of two horses pulling a carriage with skis instead of wheels down a snowy lane, two people stand at the edge of the road cleaning their skis. L/S of a scenic snow covered landscape with fur trees, in the foreground horse drawn sledge-carriages pass each other. M/S of a carriage with skis passing, it pulls behind it a line of people on sledges and a man on skis, they wave at the camera.

    Various shots of a ski jumper coming down a steep slope and leaping into the air (Eddie 'the Eagle' Edwards style!), he is watched by a large crowd of spectators. More shots of ski jumpers in action, one man takes a nasty tumble.

    L/S of a ice hockey match taking place on a rink at the base of the mountains. Various M/Ss of the match in action.

    Cuts follow a few seconds of spacing. Some shots of the hockey players having finished playing.
