If you’re looking for a thrilling winter experience, head to Whistler where you’ll be able to zip down a giant ice sliding track, reaching speeds over 100 km/ h.

The Whistler Sliding Zone is open for public bobsleigh and skeleton activities. It is a world-class facility that was used by some of the best athletes in the world during the 2010 Winter Olympics.

Sliding will be offered every day until March 31, 2019. Bobsleigh rides are for four people and are steered by a professional pilot. Sliders will zip through ten corners of the world’s fastest track, hitting speeds of up to 120 km/h.
