Learn to Slide
Do you love going fast? Are you curious about luge, skeleton or bobsleigh? At the Whistler Sliding Centre, everyone can learn to slide and train towards their goals! No experience is required.
Sport programs for all skill levels in bobsleigh, skeleton and luge are available, including introductory sessions for beginners, multi-day progression camps and full-season training programs. Qualified and passionate coaches look after everyone, from first-timers to experienced athletes! On-ice training is available from October to late March, off-season strength & conditioning sessions are offered through spring/summer/fall.
Where to start:
The ideal first step into sliding is signing up for an introductory "Discover" session! No experience is required for these one-time sessions that give a first taste of luge, skeleton or bobsleigh. Participants meet the coaches, learn about the sport, equipment and learn to slide-programming, and slide down a small portion of the track!
