2/11/1977 Press Photos:  PENGUIN SKIERS. . . It is holiday month for children in the winter sport area, and for those young enough and lucky enough from further afield to spend time learning to ski.  In this special junior ski enclosure at Les Gets Penguins are supplied as a novelty and as tame pets.  They seem to enjoy being with the children and showing off their paces.  Some of the Penguins are even fitted with miniature skis and the Penguins’ race is one of the attractions.  This young skier (top) is trying to encourage two sporting Penguins by offering them a tastey morsel of fish.
