Dimensions

Description
A highly varnished painting of Boulder Pass. At the bottom of the image there is snow that sweeps up the right side of the image and caps a rocky cliff. The snow is quite yellow at the centre of the image but becomes shadowed and dark in the bottom right corner. A lower snow-capped cliff is in the lower left corner. It forms a pass between it and the cliff on the right. The sky is quite dark at the top of the image but quite cloudy and grey-yellow lower down at the centre of the image. The vantage point makes the viewer feel as if they are peering over the ledge of a cliff and that all that is visible is sky.

Description
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.
