The National Film Unit films Kelston School for the Deaf students visiting Mt Ruapehu on a two-day trip. They are treated to a weekend at the Chateau by the Auckland Junior Chamber of Commerce. For many Kelston students, it is their first experience of snow and they make the most of it. Students are seen skiing, tobogganing, playing snowball fights, and building snowmen. The trip was made possible through a variety of donations, and was intended to become an annual treat for the Kelston students.
