Roger Broders created two posters for St. Pierre de Chartreuse, one for summer and this one for winter.

In the poster you are situated in the best spot possible to watch as a team of amateur bobsledders whizzes around the bend. Not a single member of the crowd is the same - some, leaning forward, moths agape, with excitement, white others lean casually on their skis. It is a testament to the surpassing popularity of bobsledding amongst tourists at St. Pierre de Chartreuse.
