Passenger Bobsleigh will be available again in Fall/winter 2019/2020!
Our Passenger Bobsleigh Experience is a unique activity for your bucket list! No previous experience is required. After an orientation, hop into a 4-person bobsled -steered by a trained pilot- and take an exciting ride down the world’s fastest sliding track. You and your team will race through 10 twists and turns at speeds of 125+ km/hr and feel the acceleration of up to 4 g-forces. The Whistler Sliding Centre is the only place in Canada where public can try bobsleigh and slide like an Olympian. Youth (14-18) receive 50% off together with a full paying adult. Passenger Bobsleigh runs rain, snow or shine so it’s the perfect addition to your time in Whistler, whatever the weather.
(Cost per person. 1 bobsleigh ride with pilot in a 4-person bobsleigh)
25% off the second activity for individuals who book both bobsleigh and skeleton (book by phone for the discount).

What to Expect?
Your Passenger Bobsleigh Experience begins with an orientation about your ride and track etiquette. After the orientation, you will be shuttled to your start position about two thirds up the track, where you will be fitted with a helmet. You will meet your pilot, and with the assistance of the track crew, be seated in the sled and go through the final safety checks. Listen as your team’s names are being announced on the big speakers! Once the control tower gives your sled the green light, track crew will give you a push, and it’s “bobsleigh in track” for you, your pilot, and your two fellow participants! As you will accelerate down the track, lean into the corners to assist your steering pilot in reaching top speeds of 125+ km/hr in the final corner. The uphill outrun will slow you to a stop at the finish dock, where the track crew will assist you to exit the sled. High five with your crew and line up for your commemorative photo, and take the shuttle back to Guest Services.
