Overview
More
The non-profit Whistler Sliding Centre is home to the fastest ice track in the world. Since hosting the bobsleigh, skeleton and luge competitions of the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games, the venue continues to grow sport as an active training and competition site. Visitors can experience the action first-hand with passenger bobsleigh (winter and summer) and skeleton rides (winter only) down parts of the 1,450 meter-long ice track. All proceeds from public programs go directly towards sport, and make training affordable for the athletes. Public Bobsleigh and Skeleton programs on ice will resume December 16, 2017 until April 1, 2018. Summer Bobsleigh on wheels will run again from late June until September 2018. Year-round, visitors can access the Whistler Sliding Centre's public areas for Sightseeing daily from 9am until 5pm (except public holidays). Don't miss the free interpretive walk and learn about the venue and the sports! Site access is not permitted outside these hours.

This is the fastest bobsled track in the world, built for the 2010 Olympics. The ride is short but very intense, and the price includes a photo of your group of 3 with the pilot and your sled. It is expensive, but it supports the...More

What an experience! The well trained staff make you feel comfortable throughout the entire experience. An exhilarating ride down the track is certainly not for those looking for a relaxing activity, this is a sport, and an extreme one at that. Don't forget, the louder...More

My husband booked the bobsleigh trip. I was very nervous as I am not keen on roller coasters, heights or high speed. However, I thoroughly enjoyed it and wished I had relaxed more to get the most from it. Would thoroughly recommend even if you...More

Go pros and selfie sticks are not allowed. You have to keep all body parts inside. They do film it for you and it's completely worth it!! Also you are going pretty fast so you might lose that stick and cause some damage.
