Overview
More
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.

Without doubt the best thing to do in Whistler. It takes about an hour from start to finish, and the ride itself lasts less than a minute. But you will get such a rush from hurtling down the run that every second and every dollar...More

What a great experience. The best 42.10 seconds in your life. It is expensive but worth the money if you can find it in your budget. You’ll never watch the Olympics in the same way again. Do it.

What an amazing experience!!! I went on the Bobsleigh ride (128km/h of adrenalin). It's challenging and exciting and leaves you with a real sense of achievement. This is a must in Whistler if you're ready to have your senses stimulated!!

Its open year round and as others have said, ice in winter, wheels in summer which are marginally slower but i would hazard a guess at been just as much fun. We had a blast...I'm sure you will.

You can book as an individual. You are allocated to a group of 4 sliders including the pilot according to height and weight - the bobsleigh needs to be appropriately balanced for the exciting trip downhill!!
