So they walk over to the inspector's house. Santa performs a couple of knee-bends to warm up and prepare for a really high jump, looks up the house aiming at the roof top, goes very deep into his knees, then accelerates upwards with big gesture and lifts off. After reaching a height of about one centimeter/half an inch he descends and lands safely with an elegant Telemark.
After a stunned moment of silence the inspector breaks down in laughter and can't stop anymore. After a couple of minutes he gasps: "I have won the bet! Where is my new plane?"
"Wait a minute" says Santa, "first let your house jump!"
