Other title(s):Battaglione di skiatori alpini
Description:The great value of the ski in facilitating military movements on snow is here convincingly illustrated. A party of Italian soldiers are seen covering the ground at a remarkable pace, and getting over uneven ground with ease. The concluding scenes show some of the more risky feats, the soldiers being seen clearing a considerable obstacle and shooting down a hillside at express speed.
