In 2015 the new Skyway Monte Bianco opened, replacing the rustic funivia cable car that for decades transported skiers and alpinists up to Punta Helbronner on the Italian side of Mont Blanc. Oscar Taiola, a mountain guide and icon of the former cable car and now safety manager for the new Skyway shares his passion for the high mountains while recounting the history of there former lift through to its current state of the art incarnation. Times and the technology might have changed, but as skiers Tony Lamiche, Alex Pittin, Kaj Zackrisson and Josh Daiek discover, the mountains haven't.
