La Plagne, Macot-la-Plagne

4.2
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.

  • Top even with young children or teens. Duration throughout the afternoon with film and tour of the site. and free. And at the end you can participate in a race up the track of 1.8 kms running

  • Unpublished but very expensive, count 1 euros per second for bob downhill. Thrill guaranteed but at what price

  • Amazing place with or without snow. If you like mountain biking go in the summer with your bike 😉
  • 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.
  • Limited runs but good enough for a first day outing!
