What a view ! Accelerating on skis in the slopiest part (11%) of the very short runway of 406 m length. After take-off, immediate right turn to clear the centre line, as approaches are made in the opposite direction !

I'm more of a heavy jet photo fan, but this beautiful composition tells me that I have a new favorite photo on here! Towerjoe.

Looks like great fun! Winter's been REALLY mild in my neck of the woods, I suppose someone had to get the nice powder!

An amazing photo Patrick. That looks like a lot of snow on the ground...do they ever clear the runway?

Wow! The only thing I can compare a take-off at this place to, is hang gliding! (Or possibly base-jumping!)

What lovely scenery they have in France!

Dan, they do not clear the runway. On the contrary, a machine compresses the snow to make it harder (like for ski tracks). The snow clears itself in spring, you then have a concrete runway for the summer. Patrick

Breathtaking photo, with the airport in the foreground and clouds and mountains in the background.
