Optical soundtrack, color
16mm film
The film begins with shots of mountainsides, the sun rising and setting and snow falling on pine trees. After the title sequence, we see shots of skiers on the slopes. These are the characters that will dominate much of the film and they are identified as members of the local Ski Patrol. There is also footage of skiers paying for lift tickets, children competing in Junior Ski competitions, hot air balloons , youth ski school classes and dog-sled competitions.The film then shifts to show the nightlife of the resorts. We see shots of people barbequing, eating in lodges and restaurants and waving at the camera. The next images are of the Salt Lake International Airport. The camera follows one particular skier with a Snowbird resort jacket on as he arrives in Salt Lake and takes a Taxi to his hotel. There are a few images of buildings in Salt Lake as well as a shot of the city skyline during daylight hours. In addition, we are given a glimpse of the entertainment that the city has to offer visitors. There is footage of people watching a basketball game (unidentified teams) as well as a Hockey game featuring the Salt Lake Golden Eagles). There is also a short montage of various alcoholic beverages available in the city as well as a short bit of footage of a ballet performance and a woman playing the violin in an orchestra. The film then shifts back to the skiers (members of Ski Patrol) and the nightlife afforded them. We see footage of an after dark drum circle followed by that of a country and western band. There are shots of people warming themselves in front of a fire and cooking meat on an outdoor grill. Finally, we see footage of a helicopter with the members of the Ski Patrol inside it take off for a mountain top not used by ordinary skiers. The helicopter lands and the skiers file out and proceed down the slope. After a montage highlighting their skiing prowess the film ends.Utah Ski Resorts and Areas Seen in Film:Alta, Beaver Mountain, Brian Head, Brighton, Deer Valley, Mt.
