In this thrilling video a French Gendarmerie helicopter pilot in Chamonix rescues an injured skier from snow covered mountain with his Eurocopter EC145.

The helicopter performs a maneuver called appui patin (pad support) to land on the snow covered mountain with the blades close to the mountain side to drop off and pick up crew.

The pilot had over 5000 hours of flight time.

Enjoy.
