Just returned from a 14-day trip to Whistler. We had 11 ski days and 3 rest days. On our rest days we (in order) went snowshoeing, bobsledding, and zip lining. The snowshoeing was OK, the zip lining was great, but the bobsledding was absolutely amazing!! You do your sliding experience at the Whistler Sliding Center, which is the sliding track... More

Visit the track to watch BC Cup bobsled and skeleton. Amazing to witness the speed they are going down. Witnessed a sled sliding sideways to the fiñish and Personell was quick to the rescue. Track was mostly blocked by shades to block the sun I imagine. Otherwise it was a nice experience. Inside the guest center we took pictures with... More

What a fantastic experience! It is a not for profit organisation and all money goes back into helping current and future athletes at the centre. The pre slide safety briefing covers everything you need to know before sliding down the track at around 125km/h. Definite must do during a down day in whistler.

I was excited to try bobsledding that was until I got there, lol. The safety briefing had me quaking in my boots. They told us this is the fastest track in the world. They have two types of sleds a slower and a faster Olympic type sled. I presumed we would be on the slower one but no didn't happen.... More

So happy I did this! Originally when I saw the price I taught maybe not but actually it's a non profit business so all the money goes towards the running of the place and allowing athletes train. I was very impressed when we were told this on our tour before we started. The thing is its only a minute we... More

This was a fantastic experience and I love that the money charged to guests all goes towards track maintenance to support the athletes training. Driver Damien gave us an awesome ride! Highly recommend the experience.

Came here because family member wanted to try. Both the website and the guide made it sound like it was a lot more dangerous than really is. If following all the precautions & is able to do downhill ski/snowboard or ride roller coaster, you should be fine. They weight & measure your height at the very beginning to put up... More

This is the fastest course in the world and YOU get to ride it! I did the Skeleton this trip and will Bobsled next time. You make 2 runs down the last 3rd of the track. I got 99.8 KPH and hope you get to beat it. Both are physical sports and both have weight limits. Be sure to read... More

I suggested my adult son try the Olympic Bobsleigh ride which is available in the afternoons - as I stood on at the last turn of the ride watching bobsleighs hurtle past me, I began to have doubts!!! He whizzed past me in a flash and he later reported how indescribable it was - just so fast & exhilarating! The... More
