British Columbia is home to one of the world’s top international competition sliding tracks. And the best part is - you can try it for yourself. 

Experience the Bobsleigh and Skeleton

Follow the path of Olympic champions at the Whistler Sliding Centre, located 125 km (75 mi) north of Vancouver at the premier year-round resort of Whistler. This state-of-the-art facility hosted sliding events during the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games, and it is now open for tours, international events and for public bobsleigh ride and skeleton slide programs. 

Speed enthusiasts can fly down the bobsleigh track, riding four to a sled with a professional driver and travelling at speeds of up to 130 km/h (80 mph). Those looking for an even more intense thrill opt for the skeleton, gliding head first to the finish line where family, friends and spectators can cheer them on.
