Track history

In 1986, Albertville was awarded the 1992 Winter Olympics. The track was constructed from September 1988 to December 1990 designed for bobsleigh and luge competitions. Since the 1992 Winter Olympics, the track has been host to programs on bobsleigh, skeleton and luge rides.

Did you know that…?

The track consists of 6,500 cubic metres (8,500 cu yd) of concrete cooled by 80 km (50 mi) of 10 cm (3.9 in) diameter glycol refrigeration piping that can keep the track cooled. This is the first track in the world which changed the ammonia cooling system to glycol.
The track offers speed luge and bob taxi services for tourists.
