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 hosts races for the elite of sliding athletes, highlight of the 2020/21 season will be the Luge World Championships in early 2021. In summer, guests can participate in bobsleigh rides on wheels (2020: Sat/Sun in July & August). Year-round, Olympic Sightseeing is available free of charge through a self-guided interpretive tour.
