The Whistler Sliding Centre, situated on the southeast slope of Blackcomb Mountain, was the site of the bobsled, luge and skeleton competitions for the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games. During the winter season, the Whistler Sliding Centre offers adrenaline-pumping, public sliding programs. Visitors interested in the Bobsleigh Ride Experience must first attend a sport orientation that includes helmet fitting, track etiquette, safety guidelines and a mock run. After orientation, participants will meet with the Whistler Sliding Centre (WSC) Track Crew. In summer, families are welcome to take a self-guided tour through the facility to learn about the 2010 Winter Olympic Games and Paralympic Games. Maps, which can be picked up at the entrance to the venue, describe where people can stand on the Olympic podium, take photos in an Olympic sled and walk down Thunderbird Corner to the finish dock. The tour is free.
