Overview

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.

The staff were quite knowledgeable; went over everything in great detail. Made sure we were safe at all times. Wish the ride was longer but the video you can buy makes it worthwhile so you can watch it over and over.

This was such a unique and fun experience! We interacted with several people who worked at the center and everyone couldn't have been nicer. They just want everyone to learn about the sport, have fun and be safe.

Its open year round and as others have said, ice in winter, wheels in summer which are marginally slower but i would hazard a guess at been just as much fun. We had a blast...I'm sure you will.

You can book as an individual. You are allocated to a group of 4 sliders including the pilot according to height and weight - the bobsleigh needs to be appropriately balanced for the exciting trip downhill!!
