The corridor of hay is a track used to carry hay from the mountain meadows down to the valley. The grass was cut at the end of summer and, with the first snowfall, the art of the "fenatohus", the haymaker of Vanoise, was practised. They tied the hay into bundles weighing 150 kg and then carried them to the village 600 meres below. The upper slopes of the corridor were so steep that it was impossible to use sledges and so the men had to slide down the snow with their heavy burdens along the corridor to the valley. The film portrays the enthusiam and skill of some men ho revive the corridor of hay.
