An airport I may never get to

I chanced upon a History Channel program about the most extreme airports in the world, and of the list of 10 (San Diego is #10, by the way) is an airport I may never get to: Courchevel (CVF).  Located in the French Alps, the thing that makes this airport the #7 most extreme really requires a picture to tell - I'll let you be the judge:

That's an 18 percent grade...essentially you're landing uphill.  It doesn't see regular traffic, except for vacationers to the nearby ski slopes.

And if you're curious about the History Channel special, you can find it here.
