Spectating & Sightseeing
Explore the Whistler Sliding Centre's history and legacy from the 2010 Olympic Winter Games and learn about sliding sports. Whether you are visiting in the summer or winter, there is no entrance fee to access the venue and watch sliding (except during select events).
Make sure to pick up our venue map (available at Guest Services and in our outdoor racks), and check out the self-guided interpretive tour, that leads you along the track and the final/inner loop! You will learn about the history and operation of the Whistler Sliding Centre, our sports, programs and athletes. Stand on the podium, see the Olympic rings, take a photo in a bobsleigh and walk around the famous Thunderbird Corner to the finish dock!
The public areas are stroller/wheelchair friendly (snow dependent). Please choose footwear according to weather/winter conditions as walkways may be slippery.
If you visit in winter (October to March), you can watch sliding athletes train on our track - do not miss the unique chance to experience luge, bobsleigh and skeleton up close! Make sure to check for the current track schedule (available weekly through winter).

Try our activities and support our athletes!
While you are at the Whistler Sliding Centre, try Bobsleigh, Skeleton (winter months, December until March) or Summer Bobsleigh (June/July until September), or sign your child up for one of our youth programs! With your participation in our programs you will not only experience a unique adrenaline rush, but you will also help our sliding athletes, because the revenue generated through public sliding goes directly to the sport and helps keeping training costs for athletes low. All public programs run rain, snow or shine, so it’s the perfect addition to your time in Whistler!
