On all three pieces there is are crosses make out of a black ink or printed on the paper to suggest boxes that the drawings would fit into.

There are marks behind him to show his tracks, and people at the top of the hill watching the skier, and in the background there is a mountain. In the second drawing near the BRC it is a close-up of what appears to be the same person coming up over the hill in the air. Their poles are up in the air and their bodies are turned, giving the impression that they are trying to turn themselves another direction. In the BL section there is also a doodle of a geometric structure that is nondescript.

In one drawing in the left section of the paper there is a close-up of a man skiing downhill. He is crouched on his skis, with his poles perpendicular to his body. He is going quite fast as there is a cloud of snow being kicked up behind him. In the background there are some clouds, and what appears to be the start of a mountain ridge being drawn. In the second drawing in the right section of the page, there are two distinct figures. One is carrying his skis up the hill, while another figure (which resembles the person in the first drawing on this page) is skiing down the hill. Along the horizon line there looks to be other people at the top of the hill watching on or waiting to head down themselves.
