Speed Dragoz: La Luge Des Carroz

Hi guys, not totally sure if this is the right place to do this, but I believe I’ve found a new Alpine Coaster!
I go skiing for a long weekend with the family one a year and this year we’ve decided to go to Les Marillons in the French Alpes for the second year in a row. One of the ski runs takes you down to a small resort called Les Carroz and I very quickly noticed something that wasn’t there last year... an Alpine Coaster! I appreciate this is by no means groundbreaking, but there is nothing like an elusive +1 to get the blood racing. Unfortunately I couldn’t seem to drum up the same enthusiasm with my family so I had to abandon it today. But I’ll be back tomorrow and you can be sure that i’ll do my best to get on it (as well as getting some photos)! I didn’t get close enough to read a name, but after some searching online i’ve found that they’ve named it Speed Dragoz: La Luge Des Carroz. I’ve searched on both RCDB and Coaster count for this coaster, but can’t find it anywhere. Anyway, to the point, my question was how do I inform either RCDB or Coaster count of its existance?
Cheers!

This reminds me that I still need to get the old Trago Mills cred listed so I can count it on coaster-count! I’m pretty certain Duane at rcdb is cool with people emailing about unknown creds but I don’t have his address, sure someone else can chip in with that

I didn't realise they ran many of these during the winter actually - I always assumed they were either covered in snow or closed. Bet it's pretty cool riding one at this time of year!

Oh definitely! I was surprised to see it running too in this weather, but i’ll try to also get in a sneaky POV so you can appreciate it in it’s snowy glory too. There is a chance I could get spited by the clouds as if they’re too heavy they shut down the Ski lifts, but as the coaster doesn’t open till 3pm (odd, I know) I’ll just have to keep the fingers crossed!
 
Couple of photos for you guys. Did manage to also get a very shaky POV recorded on my compact Will have to wait till I’m back in England though to upload.

They do and it's so much fun riding them after a day of skiing. Though I believe it's only the twin-railed ones that are running in Winter, while the single-railed Brandauer ones are mostly only open in Summer months. In fact, I just came home from Bled now and their Alpine Coaster was partially dissasembled and in storage.

And great news about finding this one @Slamming Coastercore! It's always nice to find a coaster that you didn't know about! :)

PS: It's also listed on Wiegand's website as a 2018 project; https://www.wiegandslide.com/alpine-coaster-references-en.html?wgrls=321
