HONOLULU - A recent video went viral showing three individuals skiing and snowboarding down Mauna Kea's second highest peak.

The athletes skied down without permission -- officials say they would not have granted them the ability to do such a thing, had they asked.

One of the Red Bull sponsored skiers, Marcus Eder, released a statement, saying, "I can now see that we should not have skied on the volcano at Mauna Kea – at this astonishing and powerful mountain. For this I offer my deepest apology to the people of Hawaii. They and their culture inspire my profound respect. The thought that I have offended them leaves me feeling gutted. My four friends entirely share this regret and apology. We all see that this should not have happened. We will be very much more careful – wherever in the world we may be - in the years ahead."

"We condemn and denounce the actions of these individuals," said Hawaii State Senator Jarrett KeohOKalole. 

Members of the Hawaiian Caucus at the legislature, trustees at the Office of Hawaiian Affairs, and others came together at the State Capitol Wednesday to express their outrage over the clip. They call the act "disrespectful," and "selfish."

"What we don't want is for people all over the world to view videos like this and to think that this is ok," said State Senator Kai Kahele. 

Red Bull tells KITV4 it was not their project. They did not provide further details.
