Family Bobsleigh Offer: “Youth Slide Free” in March

Monday, February 26, 2018

Whistler, BC: To celebrate the four Olympic medals that Canadian sliding athletes brought home from the Olympic Winter Games in PyeongChang, the Whistler Sliding Centre is inviting youth to participate in the public bobsleigh experience for free in March.

Youth ages 14-18 (14 being the minimum age for bobsleigh) will be able to slide free with a paying adult (1:1 ratio, adult price $179 + tax, additional youth $89 + tax). The offer is valid for the whole month of March until the end of this winter’s sliding season, from March 1 to April 1, 2018. Public bobsleigh is offered daily in the afternoons.

“With this offer, we want to get the next generation excited about sliding sports. They might have seen the Olympic bobsleigh, skeleton or luge competitions on TV, and we want to enable them to get a taste of our sports. Maybe they will even want to sign up for one of our introductory learn to slide programs after”, explains Tracy Seitz, Managing Director of the Whistler Sliding Centre.

More information about the Youth Slide Free offer and booking for public bobsleigh (and skeleton) is available by phone at 604-964-0040 or online.
