Guests will receive an orientation and a tour of the Whistler Sliding Centre when they first arrive, including an exclusive track walk.
You and your team will then get inside a four-person bobsleigh equipped with wheels and launch down the track. A trained pilot will guide you through twists and turns with speeds of up to 90km/hr.
Summer Bobsleigh runs four times a day from Wednesday to Sunday, rain or shine.
Each ride is $109 per adult, with one youth aged 12 to 18 sliding for free with a full-paying adult.
Any additional youth will slide for 50% off, with all proceeds from Summer Bobsleigh going to support sliding sports and athletes who train at the non-profit organization.
The minimum age to participate in Summer Bobsleigh is 12 years old and participants who are 12 and 13 must slide together with an accompanying adult in a 1:1 ratio. More information, as well as physical requirements for sliding, can be found online.
Those wanting to experience Whistler Sliding Centre at their own pace can go on a self-guided tour daily from July 1 to September 4. Pick up a track map at Guest Services from 9:30 am to 4:39 pm and explore the public areas of the Olympic legacy venue.
