Courchevel is one of the world’s most popular skiing destinations, but the airport near the ski resort isn’t suited for landing large planes filled with thousands of tourists. The majority of the planes that land at Courchevel are small passenger planes or private flights.
The airport has a small runway flanked by snow and barraged with alpine weather. Landing at Courchevel can be extremely dangerous in the winter.
Watch what happens when a pilot comes in a little too hot on his approach.
Hopefully everybody was okay.
