Video: Teenagers Skip School To Make First Ski Descent In The Alps

Here’s an awesome story of two kids who already have a thirst for adventure. 15-year old alpine skiers Nicolas Jean and Leo Delafuente dream about making first descents on some of the big mountains in the Alps. In fact, they’ll sometimes sit in class, and make sketches of their plans. Recently, they actually skipped school to become the first to ski down an impressive looking mountain that is in their neighborhood. The video below captures that first descent. Reportedly, they were back in school in time for 5th period, and kept their accomplishment a secret until they could release the film. Kids these days!
