The Whistler Sliding Centre in partnership with the B.C. Bobsleigh and Skeleton Association are offering the opportunity to try out the Olympic winter sport of Bobsleigh by piloting your own sled!
Join us at the Whistler Sliding Centre for this 2.5 hour introductory driving school, where a qualified coach will take you through the core skills and techniques needed to pilot a Bobsleigh. After a brief orientation and track walk, you will be teamed up with a partner and a training sled. With guidance from the coach, you and your partner will take your first runs on the track, taking turns as brakeman and pilot. Starting at Curve 7 (2/3 of the way up the track), you will pilot your sled reaching speeds of up to 120 km/h while driving through the final 9 corners on the Olympic track.
