Maybe not the highest bar to pass but as Courchevel is the winter home of the supercar. Ferraris, Lamborghinis, Rolls Royces you name it. I’ve seen so many that it takes some serious automotive quirkiness to blow up my skirt (metaphorically).

Courchevel just finished hosting their first Redbull 400 at the ski jump in Le Praz.

On a swelteringly hot day nearly 400 people raced up the crazily steep landing of the Olympic ski jump.

The 400m course is broken down into 4 sections. The start, which is a 100m run to the base of the hill. The K point, at 36 degrees, the steepest part of the hill which takes the co
