Fun & Games Sports Complex
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.

  • Bus 3 arrives at the Olympic bobsleigh run, we were pre booked. Very efficient to get helmets leave bags. We were in salopettes and jackets but others were in jeans. We shared a sled for 4. It was fas...  more »
  • Brilliant if you like speed. You arrive, get given 'shower hats' to wear under the supplied helmet, go outside, wait for the 'raft' to arrive, then in your groups of 4 clamber in! The guy pushes you o...  more »
  • Although it's likely to be one of the most expensive minutes of your life it's definitely worth it. The set up is pretty efficient and there's no fuss when it comes to your turn to go down the track -...  more »

  • La Plagne is excellent for novice/intermediate skiers. My children have learnt so much from skiing here. Ignore the 1970's buildings in centre and get up to the top for an amazing view. Also use Reflex Ski for private lessons, they are amazing
  • Excellent resort with an extensive and varied selection of pistes suitable for all abilities. Accomadation is spread over several sub resorts which helps to distribute the crowds at peak times. However the lift queues can get long in the school holidays... but you expect that at most resorts. I have to agree with another reviewer though that there are better resorts in Austria (and Switzerland) which is why I am only awarding 4 stars.
  • Great ski area for all abilities, whichever way you choose to slide down mountains. Plenty of ski schools, and a good selection of eateries and shops (ranging from souvenirs and outdoor goods, to essentials and local specialities). Mountain hiking trails are open during the ski season too.
  • What a fantastic place. A great resort, great skiing and lively apres ski.
  • Really nice ski resort. A lot of slopes. Only thing is that it can get quite busy in the popular weeks.
