Overview

The non-profit Whistler Sliding Centre is home to the fastest ice track in the world. Since hosting the bobsleigh, skeleton and luge competitions of the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games, the venue continues to grow sport as an active training and competition site. Visitors can experience the action first-hand with passenger bobsleigh (winter and summer) and skeleton rides (winter only) down parts of the 1,450 meter-long ice track. All proceeds from public programs go directly towards sport, and make training affordable for the athletes. Public Bobsleigh and Skeleton programs on ice will resume December 16, 2017 until April 1, 2018. Summer Bobsleigh on wheels will run again from late June until September 2018. Year-round, visitors can access the Whistler Sliding Centre's public areas for Sightseeing daily from 9am until 5pm (except public holidays). Don't miss the free interpretive walk and learn about the venue and the sports! Site access is not permitted outside these hours.

Truly exciting to visit the home of the 2010 Olympics. Would like to visit again and try a Bobled run. Well worth the visit.

Definitely not organized to go with your friends. If you go in a big group it works better. They try to put you together, but for safety it goes by weight. (Not a bad thing, just making it clear) It was fast and fun and...More

The track is the fastest in the world I believe and once seeing it you will understand why the sliders love the speed and challenges of it. Visit the Guest Services for shirts, etc.

This is a great way to experience the bobsled ride. The tour guides/drivers are fantastic! You get to walk the course for part of the way (don't worry, it's downhill) which is very cool. The ride itself is fast and rather physical. My wife said...More

Go pros and selfie sticks are not allowed. You have to keep all body parts inside. They do film it for you and it's completely worth it!! Also you are going pretty fast so you might lose that stick and cause some damage.
