The sliding center is open but it is a self guided walking tour in the summer. You can get very close to the plastic track but I don't know why you would want to do this. There are lots of other places to hike up a hill and the scenery would be better.

Had a great run with Snowy. We hit 84km/hr and had a 56 second run FYI the bobsleds are a lot faster in the winter...around 125+km/hr This was the first year that the summer bobsledding was introduced to Whistler, they were not running on Tuesdays or Wednesdays, so just check the schedule before you go. The price only includes one... More

What a blast! Snowy was our driver. He had loads of energy, offered lots of great info, and was excited - like a kid in a candy store. He made the ride incredibly fun. The ride is thrilling, and the 55 seconds fly by. But a great experience, not to be missed.

What a unique experience. Can't wait to go back in the winter and try it on the ice. The staff are friendly, outgoing and passionate about their sport. I enjoy watching the sliding sports during the Olympics, and now I have a much better appreciation for what these athletes do on a daily basis. I really like that this is... More

There's not many places in the world for the public to try something like this. It was an unforgetable experience. I rode with Jason and Liz. They were awesome! Gave me the fastest ride of the day.

This was a bucket list item for my husband to ride in a bobsled on an Olympic track (the fastest bobsled track to date). It was most interesting to learn about the sport too. We were traveling at 60 miles per hour with 2 G Force. I can't imagine how it would be for an Olympian at higher speeds and... More

My wife and I were in Whistler on our honeymoon and upon hearing you could still visit and participate at the sliding track during summer season made it the top of our to-do list while in town. Snowy and co. did an amazing job both on and off the track to create an unforgettable experience in total. Worth the visit... More
