We’ve all watched the Winter Olympics, transfixed, as the world’s best athletes competed for glory. We’ve imagined what it would feel like to be in their shoes; what it would feel like to try these fascinating sports out for ourselves. Well, with the Whistler Olympic Experience, the time has come for you to find out. Experience the thrill of rocketing down the track tucked tightly into a bobsled, or head-first on a skeleton luge.
Experience the focus of a cross-country ski racer as you relive the moments from the 2010 Olympics on the very track they skied. You can even try your hand at biathlon marksmanship! Come to Whistler and experience the Olympics for yourself. Who knows, maybe you’ll discover a new hobby.
Whistler Sliding Centre:
Whistler Sliding Centre is one of 15 international competition sliding tracks in the world and has hosted several national and international bobsleigh, luge, and skeleton competitions since the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games. Situated on Blackcomb Mountain, the venue complements the other adventure-oriented activities in the area and operates as a centre for high-performance development, youth and recreational club programming, and tourist and public admissions (passenger rides and tours).
The Whistler Sliding Centre offers public bobsleigh and skeleton rides during the winter season (until March 31) as part of the sport experience program. Self-guided interpretive tours of the Sliding Centre are also available. Spectators are always welcome for free and a small access fee will be charged for entrance to events.
