Nothing to see here. Just a firm landing and low level hover taxi down the slope to a more suitable loading area. Move along.

Those valet parking attendants sure like messing around with the torque turns, approaches aren't their usual fare I guess. Should get away with just handing the keys back.

Easy...he ran out of altitude, airspeed, and ideas simultaneously.

Obviously he looks to be down wind, but the way the machine was still power limited after it bounced I wonder if the seat belt tail got caught in the collective track. Has caused a few whoopsies in past. Have had it myself, luckily no damage but gets the heart going.

No, when most U.S. pilots strap in there is no tail left to worry about.

haha, but its the passenger belt tail that catches you out. When it happened to me someone (skinny) was strapped in. Nice little gotcha.

You weren't expecting a rotor tip to hit the slope? You thought that was normal? Jeez.

Best slope landing technique I've seen for a while.
