The Moriond Racing luge run in Courchevel 1650
Moriond Racing is a brand new 3km long luge run that adds another great apres-ski activity on offer to our guests in Courchevel Moriond 1650.
The run goes from the top of the new Ariondaz gondola – it can now carry 2400 people per hour - lift down as far as the snow front in Courchevel 1650.
With 8 tunnels and 450m of vertical drop and with an average gradient of 15%, it promises a thrilling ride!
Testing the track…
We sent Iain Martin and his family to test out the track earlier this week:
“This is a classic ski resort family activity, but with a twist,” Iain told us. “I’ve tried luge runs in a few different resorts, but the tunnels and banked turns make it feel much more like a course, than just another way of getting down the mountain.”
“We had great fun, although we found that the snow was a bit slushy and slow in places. That’s not surprising, given that it was an April afternoon. I’d love to try it on a cold January evening – I bet it would be shockingly fast!”
Take a look at the video below to see how Iain got on:
