Saarinen describes his skiing vacation to Bassett using sketches with brief captions or notes: first of the journey to the mountains, by train and horse-drawn sleigh; next of skiing; next of a Finnish bath and people asleep in a lodge; last a landscape, a "filmstrip" of his friend Marianne tumbling down the mountainside, and the comically gruesome result of her fall.
