Summary: Almost complete first reel of a Hungarian film of their own troops in the Italian Alps, probably 1918.
Description: The troops are based at a skiing lodge in the mountains, well above the snow-line. The various groups go out on patrols, moving in single file up and down the mountain tracks at a height of 3500 metres. Two men ride in an aerial cable-car little bigger than they are. More men on the march like black dots in the snow. A heavy gun concealed in a gun pit, described as the highest gun in the Alps. A snow-cave dug in the mountain. A difficult climb up the mountainface. Men set out on ski patrol from the lodge. One group makes a climb with ice-axes. Other patrols continue up and down the paths. Men run around the campsite for exercise. The cable-car comes up and skis are unloaded from it. General views of the mountains.
