WATCH: Skier Falls Endlessly On Europe’s Hardest Trail


The Tunnel at Alpe d’Huez, France is often considered the hardest trail in Europe.

The video’s uploader says that he tore his rotator cuff in the fall. Ouch.

The Tunnel gets its name from the long cave in the mountain that skiers push through to reach the top of the trail.

You can see the tunnel itself if you rewind the video above to the beginning.
