Participants can now 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 sliding session, where a qualified coach will take you through the skills and techniques needed to become a skeleton athlete. 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!
|Who:||Individuals aged 14 and up (no previous experience needed).

*Ages 14 to 28 may participate in this program for a reduced price of $50/session because they are possible recruits for the sport of skeleton as they fit into the 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.
