Choose Between Two Options

  • C$129.99 for a two-hour bobsleigh ride experience for one (C$177.45 value)
  • C$129.99 for a two-hour skeleton ride experience for one (C$177.45 value)

Both experiences begin with a preliminary 30-minute orientation that familiarizes riders with the equipment and the sport itself and includes a helmet fitting and weigh-in. For the bobsleigh, riders then take a shuttle to a start position halfway up the track and hop inside a sleek bobsleigh with two other passengers and a professional pilot. Once everyone is settled in, the vessel races down the track in a single run that reaches speeds up to 125 km/h. Click here for more information about the bobsleigh experience.

Skeleton sliders walk to a starting position one-third of the way up the track, becoming acquainted with the track corners as they go. Once in position, sliders careen down the track solo in two separate runs, reaching speeds of up to 100 km/h. Click here for more information about the skeleton experience.

Whistler Sliding Centre

Nestled in the Fitzsimmons Valley on the southeast slope of Blackcomb Mountain, the accolades of Whistler Sliding Centre’s facilities speak for themselves. With a 1,450 metre-long competition track, the centre played host to bobsleigh, luge and skeleton competitions during the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympic Games. The high performance sliding sports venue also contains support buildings around the track.

Whistler Sliding Centre

The Whistler Sliding Centre (WSC) is operated by Whistler Sport Legacies, a non-profit organization dedicated to grow sport at three venues: Whistler Olympic Park, the Whistler Sliding Centre, and the Whistler Athletes’ Centre. Each facility plays a unique role in inspiring sport excellence for the benefit of athletes, residents, and visitors. The WSC was the 2010 Olympic Winter Games venue for bobsleigh, skeleton, and luge competitions; and today, is a training and competition venue for sliding sport athletes of all levels.
