The 2010 Olympics in Vancouver inspired a Country to cheer on their athletes, as well as exposing them to some amazing sports. One of the highlights has to be the Whistler Sliding Centre Bobsleigh races, and as part of the Whistler Olympic Legacy program, you now have the chance to try out what it’s like to be rocketing down the track in your own Bobsleigh.

Hosting a number of different ice sports, The Whistler Sliding Centre Bobsleigh, Luge, and Skeleton track is an amazing site to see first hand. To give guests a chance to experience what it feels like ride on this state of the art track, they offer an amazing Bobsleigh or Skeleton Ride package where you get geared up and get to tear down this 1,450 metre long ice track.
