La Plagne, Macot-la-Plagne
(4.3/5 based on 160+ 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.

  • Took my son on a bob raft, I thought it would be a bit tame how wrong I was the G force is something else!!! would recommend to any one looking for a speed experience to remember forever! 
  • Amazing to see the real bobsleigh. And to try it. It's fast, quite expensive and you have to book your time in advance (it's not walk in and go really). But once in a life to try it is impressive. 
  • In the summer the track is open for the climb in the race on foot or mountain bike. The great 6Bob. Thursday night registration at 4 pm to 5 pm...

  • 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
