La Plagne, Macot-la-Plagne

(4.3/5 based on 190 reviews on the web)
La Plagne was constructed in 1992 for the Winter Olympics bobsled competition, and the track still hosts events and training sessions. View this technical marvel from a distance and imagine a bobsled rushing down at 112 kph (70 mph) towards the finish line. The track is 6,500 cubic m (8,500 cubic yards) of concrete cooled to -15 C (5 F) by 80 km (50 mi) of ammonia refrigerator piping. Fifteen ice workers manually apply water to generate ice up to 4 cm (1.6 inch) thick and 40 km (25 mi) of electrical conduit is wired in the track from start to finish, including timing, television cables, computers, and sensors.

  • A day of bad weather and here we are at the bobsleigh track. After booking essential. The slowest formula costs 45 euros per person and allows you to be aware of the sensations of this little-known sport. For fans, there are faster and more expensive.

  • Bob in family to do when it comes to the plagne. Unique experience and a very very friendly staff. I want to congratulate us do love their passion, from departure to arrival. Congratulations and thank you for your good mood. Experience to do, € 45 downhill bob and you can live any other experience in sledging or other. Go there with your eyes closed you will not be disappointed. Of course, you can leave with your images of descent on a USB for €25, but the experience and the memories have you they priced. Good run to you all

  • Three of us decided to have a go in a weak moment! Great decision and well worth it though not the most comfortable 2 minutes of my life! Another one off the bucket list,  more »

  • Can be very busy - especially at lower lifts. Once you are through this it is fine though. The glacier is well worth the wait. Great little bars all over the place too.
  • Part of a massive linked ski area, Paradiski. Beware La Plagne's own area is massive so you may not need access across to the whole area. In school holidays the queues at lifts can become massive so perhaps better to choose to be in Plagne Soleil or Belle Plagne. There's a lot of investment being made in La Plagne (as 1 of the original purpose built ski resorts) to improve facilities & access.
  • What a great place to ski and have a summer holiday. Loads of things to do in fabulous scenery.
  • Great resort plenty of exploring and also a app to track the skiing
  • First ski trip and loved the place. Excellent teachers, schools and facilities
