La Plagne is a treasure chest with some treasures that you will only find here. Here’s a list of what you won’t find anywhere else, adventures that you can only experience in La Plagne.
It’s France’s one and only bobsleigh track and the machines that have been designed for tourists to go down the track in are unique in the world. The track still hosts international competitions and our ice specialists’ expertise is envied in the field. La Plagne’s bobsleigh & skeleton track has something a bit magical and very thrilling about it!
Perched on its 3 legs, La Plagne’s ice tower can be found in the valley of Champagny-le-Haut: an important detail, since it largely contributes to the overall atmosphere with its grandiose natural setting, interspersed with small traditional hamlets for a soft, crystalline atmosphere. Contemplation and concentration go hand in hand here, which is perfect for learning ice climbing, an activity that harks back to the legends of alpinism.
La Plagne has a glacier which is accessible all year round. In winter, it is a spot for experienced skiers, since it is no longer groomed. “Why is that?”, you might ask. To get closer to “natural”, off-piste-style conditions that skiers are always looking for but in a “safe” environment. On Bellecôte glacier, the ski patrollers are there for the safety aspect but it’s Mother Nature who shapes the terrain.
