Paradiski Cable Slackline - Exclusive Highline in the French Alps
The Vanoise Express is a double-decker cable car that links La Plagne with Les Arcs ski resorts in the Alps. It is acting as a vital link in the Paradiski area. Cable was suspended between two funicular cabins of the the Vanoise Express, "adapted" for the occasion by designer Jean-Charles de Castelbajac.
The area has been connected by the Vanoise Express cable car since 2003. Thanks to the connections, the whole resort has 160 lifts and 425 km of slopes. 152 blue / green (light) runs, 79 red (intermediate) and 22 black (difficult) trails.
The complexity of this trick lies in the line´s constant motion and instability. But these two professional highline specialists are among the best in the world, so they met with the problem right, showing full confidence. The excellent Slacklining performance was applauded by numerous spectators, some of them obviously very scary during the guys´walk. In fact there was no risk at all, as both athletes were attached to a rope.
