I agree with von thoma, by the way an interesting photo...
Almost all men wear the typical wedge pants (Keilhosen) for the winter time, as well as the winter lace-up shoes. (Gebirgsstiefel)
The men lying on the ground, presumably participants on a "Biathlon" shooting range, use the military sport rifle (Wehrsportgewehr) in .22 caliber to shoot at the targets.

Thanks for sharing, nice photo...
P.S. Is there an inscription on the back, any stamps, numbers, etc.?
