La Plagne is proud to host one of the hottest new extreme descent competitions the Beton On Fire. For those who have no idea what this could entail, riders don inline skates or skateboards and ride down bobsleigh tracks at break-neck speeds against the clock.

It is free to come and watch this event - so no excuses to miss out.
