This is Courchevel Airport, a French airport that serves Courchevel, a ski area. Its elevation is at 6588ft. The airport is known for its a very short runway of only 1722ft with gradient of 18.5 %. There is no go-around procedure in this airport.

The airport is considered dangerous, having a difficult approach, an upslope runway and a hill.

Don’t forget to watch the videos with taking off and landing, very impressive.

This looks like the location of the opening scene of the James Bond film "Tomorrow Never Dies."

It's not all that bad really. The 18% inclination slows a landing plane down very effectively, and helps the taking off plane to gain speed.
Courchevel is a very fancy and expensive ski resort, that has some very VIP people flying in day in, day out. In general, France is a rich western country that wouldn't dream of allowing any of its cities to run an airport that wouldn't be in compliance with IATA standards.
