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. Planning Macot-la-Plagne trip won't be overwhelming when you use Inspirock's itinerary maker.

Went on the Bob raft. Very professional setup. Speeds of about 50 mph and good g forces in corners. Price reasonable for a unique experience. Will try the luge, solo ride if I go again. Pity there...

Great pub just off the slopes. Fab for apres ski or to shelter on a snowy day. They do a happy hour but drinks are generally priced ok. Live music some evenings.

Reservations are just an approximation, they don't honor them. They are very poorly organized. Expect delays and sub-par customer service treatment :/ The ride itself is interesting-to-exciting, but very short. However when you get treated so poorly in the beginning it spoils the entire thing. If you choose to go, I'd recommend lowering your expectations and assume you'll wait at least 30-45" past your reservation time.
Definitely give this a go if you are holidaying in la plagne
