Public Sliding Activities

Due to the ongoing BC public health order, Passenger Bobsleigh and Public Skeleton are not available in winter 2020/21. 

This decision was made to help slow the spread of COVID-19, and to ensure the Whistler Sliding Centre can remain open safely for athlete training.

We will welcome public back on ice in winter 2021/22, or in summer 2021 for bobsleigh on wheels!

About us

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

Public visitors can try Whistler's most unique activities, passenger bobsleigh (winter and summer) and public skeleton (winter). Aspiring athletes can join "Learn to Slide" programming for all skill levels in bobsleigh, skeleton and luge within the BC Sliding Development Centre. The facility is also a National Training Centre and popular training and competition venue for athletes from all over the world. Each year, races for all levels from beginners to the elite of sliding athletes, such as World Cups and World Championships are held on the Olympic legacy venue. 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!

Things to Do

Choose from unique public activities like passenger bobsleigh or public skeleton, or join one of the various sport programs for all skill levels to learn bobsleigh, luge or skeleton.
