Good place for a happy hour (or 2) drink at the end a a hard day skiing. There is a restaurant but we did not try it. It seems to cater for residents of the hotel rather than visitors.

At 40 euros each for the 'bob raft' ride this experience is hardly cheap, but definately worth it! A bob raft fits 4 adults in, meaning if you are a group of 2 you will be cobined with another group of 2. It starts off at a slow pace but very rapidly gains speed. The G forces you feel on... More

We did the bobsleigh with our two children (11 & 8) and had a brilliant experience and a video that we will treasure forever. A must do!

This 'thrilling' experience really gives you an insight to why those 'crazy tobogganists' would want to put their lives on the line so willingly. We went for the four in a toboggan(Raft) option. It started very tamely, accelerated through 'fairground ride' speed and finished like a trip in a jet fighter! I loved it an would love to try it... More

I went on the 4 man bobsleigh , 3 guests and a driver. Exhilarating and scary, the compression in the turns almost makes you pass out. Don't go if you have a back problem or a dodgy tum. Seems expensive at €130 but worth every penny, a very unusual thrill.

This is an experience not to be missed, the speed is incredible! We were staying in Plagne Centre and got on the shuttle bus which stopped pretty much outside the bobsleigh location. There were six of us and after we registered we sat in the waiting room for about 20 mins - the anticipation is stomach churning!! When you are... More

Very nice staff, kind of rustic but with a nice fire. Good pizza available. They had a bbq night when we went with a poor frozen chef outside making Pulled Pork Baguettes and Burgers. 7 Euros for one of those and a free drink.
