The Whistler Sliding Centre is one of many legacies of the 2010 Winter Games and was the host venue for bobsleigh, luge and skeleton.
When the first sled flew down the track, athletes and coaches knew they had something special. The 1,450-metre track was designed to be a unique world-class venue with a 175-metre vertical drop and 16 corners. Top speeds average 135 km/hr, making this track one of the most challenging and fast in the world.
Today, the venue serves as a legacy for the enjoyment of residents, visitors and high performance athletes.
Located on the side of Blackcomb Mountain, the Whistler Sliding Centre is operated by Whistler Sports Legacies as a centre for high-performance development, youth and recreational club programs.
It also offers public sliding programs during the winter to residents and guests looking for an additional thrill: The Skeleton Sport Experience and the Bobsleigh Sport Experience.
The Whistler Sliding Centre is also open for self-guided touring throughout the winter and summer.
