Young participants can get a taste of the Olympic winter sport of skeleton by sliding down the track on their own sled!
Join us at the Whistler Sliding Centre for this 2 hour introductory sliding session, where a qualified coach will take you through the skills and techniques needed to become a skeleton athlete (read more about our coaches here). After a brief orientation, you will walk the track and be fitted with a sled. With guidance from the coach, you will take your first two runs from the Maple Leaf start (1/3 of the way up the track), reaching speeds of up to 100 km/h on the Olympic track!
(PER PERSON, 2 SOLO SKELETON RIDES)
Cost includes two solo skeleton rides. Use of a skeleton sled and helmet is included. Additional information will be provided upon registration.
*The age range of 14 to 25 years aligns with long-term athlete development stages in the sliding sports and the Canadian Sport for Life program. This age range allows us to capture early, as well as late stage Olympic potential athletes.
