Come and try one of the most exhilarating sports in Whistler! The Whistler Sliding center offers a public Skelton program in the winter at the 2010 Olympic Winter games venue.
Helmet - check!, Courage - check! Ready to take on one of the fastest tracks in the world - check! Skelton offers the most adventurist activity you can imagine in the winter season. Take on the fastest sliding track in the world head first and experience what the professionals do cause this is the only place in Canada where the public can experience the rush of Skelton!
The Skelton program offers 2 runs and you will take off from the Maple Leaf starting point, passing through six corners and clocking speed up to 100 km/hr with up to 3 G forces. Instructions will be provided before the run, and try to balance well while riding down in order to have a smooth ride. (if possible!)
The program provides a commemorative certificate - your proof to the world that you had the thrill of a life time!! While you are there you can also try your hand at bobsleigh where you and three others can reach speeds up to 125kms/hr on the worlds fastest track.
