High Mountain Slackline

It’s not often that it takes backcountry skiing and technical mountaineering to hang a slackline, but then again most people aren’t professional slackliners.

Hayley Ashburn is a pro, and this video shows what it takes to perform an incredible walk in the mountains of Italy.

The video by Adidas presents some new Climaheat gear from the company and introduces their campaign, #openallwinter, but mostly we’re impressed with Ashburn’s cool backcountry project. What an amazing place to play on a slackline!
