Appeared in "Form Shonen Champion" (Akita Shoten Publishing Co., Ltd.) as a series of complete stories
Okuno and Sasaki are rivals in skiing, competing for first place in a ski championship. They stay at a lodge every winter to practice together and evaluate each other's progress. One winter, they go a little way further into the mountain to ski where a truck suddenly appears and nearly hits them. Since it is strange for a truck to be there because there is no road, they presume that this might be the mysterious phenomenon the local people call "the snowman." Confronted by the hostile truck again, they finally find what "the snowman" actually is.
