The skaters are Jasmine Ngaparu, Julian Sherman, Shannon Tully, Jordan Hall, Mitch Thompson and Matteo Rodinis on Col D'Izoard.
In the heart of the French Alps, it is a famous climb in the Tour de France, and an iconic downhill descent.
Some mountains are worth the wait. Some need more than one day of skating. At the end of a European tour, a small crew of skaters found themselves at Col D'Izoard. Seven days of downhill heaven.
Sometimes a run is so good, the crew so much fun that you squeeze every second out of the day. Runs don't stop until it is dark. Then until late, the day is relived and tales so tall you would think they were mountains. Wake up and do it all again.
Those days you wish would never end.
Squeeze out every drop before its gone.
