Leszek Krzeszowiak was a skier (among others a Polish vice-champion in slalom in 1949 in Karpacz), ski coach, academic lecturer, judge, director of the Department of Judges and General Skiing in the Polish Ski Association. He was also passionate about filming sports and important events, not only family events. The pictures were shot with the Czechoslovak Admira 16 mm camera.

The film was made during the author’s stay at the PZN (Polish Ski Association) instructors’ ski camp in the Austrian Alps. These are short snapshots from the life of a typical mountain tourist town: skiers, lifts, hotels and snowy peaks towering over them.
