Bobsleigh & Skeleton World Cup, December 4th to 10th, 2023

La Plagne’s bobsleigh and skeleton track, its heritage from the Albertville Olympic Games in 1992, has lost none of its panache. More active than ever, this winter it will be hosting a stage of the Bobsleigh & Skeleton World Cup on January December 4th to 10th, 2023. The 19 bends of this technical track will be the theatre for a battle where every millisecond counts.

Encourage the French team

Playing “at home”, the French athletes know every inch of the La Plagne track. Some have been training there since they were kids. We have total faith in their ability and will be there to cheer them on! There will be at least one French competitor in every discipline: skeleton, 2-person bobsleigh & 4-person bobsleigh.

Practical info

120 international athletes will be competing on the legendary Albertville Olympic track during this international competition.

In collaboration with the National and International Bobsleigh and Skeleton Federations, La Plagne resort and the Olympic Track will be hosting the Bobsleigh and Skeleton World Cup from 4 to 10 December 2023. La Plagne is the only French resort with such a facility, which dates back to the Albertville Olympic Games. The legendary track is a firm favourite with foreign nations, who appreciate its technical features.

Racing down like an Olympic athlete

Did you know that holidaymakers can try a descent on La Plagne’s Olympic bobsleigh track all through the winter at the end of the afternoon, after the sports training has finished? There is a choice of three descents for the general public: bob raft, speed luge or bob racing. Three machines that allow you to walk (slide) in the athletes’ footsteps; there’s no pretence either, you start right from the top of the track…three, two, one…GO!
