"Winter sports in the blue and white Laurentian hills. Skiers from all over the continent come to picturesque St-Sauveur, Ste-Adele and Ste-Agathe - where the grocery-man even delivers eggs on skis. During the crisp days ski instructors from many countries demonstrate their skill, while in the evenings the chalets are centres of fun and relaxation. The film ends on a gay note, with a French-Canadian sing-song in one of these mountain lodges."
