In addition to purely recreational programs, the Whistler Sliding Centre together with the local sliding associations is offering programming for public participants who want to learn bobsleigh, skeleton or luge. Programs are offered for kids (luge), young adults (luge/skeleton) and adults (bobsleigh/skeleton). If you or your children are interested in pursuing sliding sports this is the place to start! Click here for more information.
Our Public Bobsleigh Program is an activity for your 'bucket list'! Hop into a 4-person bobsled and take an adrenaline-fueled ride down the world’s fastest track, now an Olympic legacy. With guidance from a trained bobsleigh pilot (and reassurance from our detailed safety procedures), you and your team will coast through 10 twists and turns at speeds of 125+ km/hr and feel the acceleration of up to 4 G forces as you reach the track’s final and famous Thunderbird Corner. Bobsleigh runs rain, snow or shine so it’s the perfect addition to your time in Whistler, whatever the weather.
+++ Public sliding will be available again in the 2017/2018 winter season, starting in December 2017. Summer Bobsleigh will commence on July 1, 2017 +++
