A department store has an indoor ski-slide for the annual contest for department store employees. Salesgirl June has two admirers; a sausage salesman in the store and the store's snooty ski instructor. But the sausage salesman goes into intensive ski-training, wins the contest and wins the girl. The Dandridge Sisters (Dorothy, Vivian and non-sister Etta Jones) do two numbers.Written by

Virginia Grey was a long time favorite of MGM's Louis B. Mayer, she appeared in dozens of MGM films and was at one time briefly linked with Clark Gable.
She gets a chance to star in her own short subject here with a pair of forgotten romantic rivals, all working in a department store. It's wintertime and the store is sponsoring a ski jumping contest in the store. One very nice set was built for this.
In any event her two rivals, Roger Converse and Hudson Shotwell get to jump to win a store prize and the fair lady's hand.
Charles Judels is the officious store manager who backs the wrong horse and ends up hanging around so to speak.
The short subject crammed a few musical numbers in its running time including three by the Dandridge Sisters before lead Dorothy went out on her own.
It's a pleasant 20 or so minutes with a few laughs also at the store manager's expense.
