Courchevel Altiport is located on the French ski resort of Courchevel, part of the Three Valleys, the world's largest linked ski area. The Altiport is the highest tarmacked runway in Europe and the shortest airport runway in the world. The runway length was originally about 1230 ft (375 meters) and was extended to 1767 ft (537 meters) for the Albertville Winter Olympic Games in 1992. Courchevel Altiport has a difficult but spectacular approach and hence requires special training for landing. Due to its particularities, the altiport is only accessible to Turboprops. It does not require take-off or landing slots.
