Piste de bobsleigh – La Roche – 73210 La Plagne

Piste Olympique de bobsleigh La Plagne

An Olympic track for all

La Plagne is home to France’s only bobsleigh and skeleton track. Nestled under Plagne 1800, it echoes back to a tradition that is deeply rooted in our Alpine resort. Even before La Plagne was a ski resort, the locals used to race bobsleighs on the road and used the intense cold in the sector to create the precursor of the track. In 1992, the Albertville Olympic Games consecrated our love for bobsleigh and designated La Plagne as the host resort for the Olympic discipline. Since then, the team has shared its passion by creating machines that are unique in the world, invented by and for La Plagne, that allow the general public to go down the track. It is open to holidaymakers at the end of the afternoon, after the sports training. Don’t forget to reserve your descent.

Bobraft à La Plagne

Bob raft, for the fun

Accessible from min. height 1.30 m, this is the descent for families. The raft steers and brakes on its own and holds 4 people for an amazing, shared experience, reaching 80 km/h in the fastest section of the descent. Considered as the “introduction” descent, it is perfect for the “first time”. Let’s be clear, however: La Plagne’s bobsleigh track does not do half measures, so you are taking the same route as the professionals! Price: 48€ per person

Speed Luge piste olympique de bobsleigh

Speed luge, for the thrill

If you prefer to go it alone, try the speed luge, lying back with your feet first. The bonus: an unobstructed view of the track. Oh yes, you get to appreciate each of the 19 bends fully! You can even try to count them, but when you’re going 90 km/h, you may well lose count… Price: 112€ per person

Bob Racing sur la piste olympique de La Plagne

Bob racing, for the action

The bob racing, even faster, is very close to a competition descent. To reach 120 km/h, a driver sits in the bobsleigh in front of the three passengers who are briefed before the departure. The G-force in the bends, the ever-increasing speed, the sound of the friction on the ice… that is the bobsleigh, a passion that leaves you with an unforgettable memory.
