Welcome to the Whistler Sliding Centre!

Located above Whistler Village on the side of Blackcomb Mountain, the Whistler Sliding Centre is a world-class bobsleigh, skeleton and luge facility.

Today, winter visitors can tick passenger bobsleigh or public skeleton off their bucket lists in the public sessions. The venue is also home to the BC Sliding Development Centre, which offers programming for all skill levels in bobsleigh, skeleton and luge. It is a National Training Centre and training venue for athletes from all over the world. The venue regularly hosts races for all levels from beginners to the elite of sliding athletes, such as World Cups and World Championships. In summer, guests can participate in bobsleigh rides on wheels. Year-round, Olympic Sightseeing is available free of charge through a self-guided interpretive tour.

The Whistler Sliding Centre is a non-profit organization, and all proceeds from public programs go directly towards growing sport and supporting bobsleigh, skeleton and luge athletes!

We are OPEN for Sightseeing!

Daily from 9:00am to 4:00pm (except stat holidays), visitors can learn about our track, the Olympic legacy, our sports and athletes on our self-guided interpretive walking tour (stroller/wheelchair friendly). Venue access for sightseeing is free!

Winter operations with sliding on ice will resume in October, with bobsleigh and skeleton activities for public participants, youth sport programs as well as athlete training and competitions through to March.
