No experience is required for folks to take a piloted ride until September 4. You’ll even get a chance to discover the iconic 2010 Olympic Winter Games venue during your visit.

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.

Each ride is $109 per adult, with one youth aged 12 to 18 sliding for free with a full-paying adult.
