High up in the French Alps, “highliners” walk on cable wires 1,000 ft. above the ground

From EuroNews:

Higher than the snowy caps of the French Alps, two of the most skilled highliners
in the world balance on a 2.5 cm cable 380 metres above the ground.

Defying gravity 380 metres above ground, Julien Millot and Tancrede Melet, two of the
most skilled highliners in the world, walked a line on the Vanoise Express cable
car between the snowy mountain caps of the French Alps on Monday (December 16).

The two frenchmen, who have battled highlines around the world, balanced on the
line, only 2.5 cm wide, which linked two cable cars as part of an event celebrating
the 10 year anniversary of the Paradiski ski resort and its Vanoise Express transport
system.
