A delightful, if unapologetically sexist promotion, for winter sports in Australia’s Alpine region by the National Film Board from 1947.

Before chair lifts, T-bars and the like, skiers had to trudge up the mountain to be able to ski back down. It might leave attractive herringbone patterns in the snow but it looks exhausting nonetheless.

The jury seems to still be out on the oft repeated claim that Australia has more snow that Switzerland.
