What's New
Sleighs to Skates

From sleighs to skates, Whistler welcomes new activities this winter. At the Whistler Sliding Centre, a legacy of the 2010 Winter Games, the public bobsleigh and skeleton experiences are new. Participants in the Skeleton Slide Experience begin their track journey at the Maple Leaf Start, about 1/3 of the way up the track, making their way through six corners and reaching speeds of up to 100 kilometres per hour, while Bobsleigh Ride Experience participants are led by a professional pilot through 10 corners at speeds of up 125 kilometres per hour.

For those who prefer to be vertical while on the ice, this winter also marks the launch of Whistler’s outdoor skating rink, located at the great lawn and pavilion of the Whistler Olympic Plaza (home of the medals ceremonies and outdoor concerts during the 2010 Winter Games) in the heart of the village. Skating at Whistler Olympic Plaza takes place daily between 11 a.m. – 9 p.m. Public access to the rink is free and skate rentals are available for $5 between 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. and in the evenings from 6-9 p.m.
*Note: Images of the outdoor rink are available for use by media here.
