Summer Bobsleigh

Our Public Bobsleigh Program is an activity for your 'bucket list' – and now you can do it in the summer! All it takes is a bobsleigh equipped with wheels, a trained pilot and four enthusiastic passengers. After a safety orientation and a tour of the 2010 Olympic Winter Games venue including an exclusive track walk, your “Rolling Thunder” team will reach speeds of up to 90 km/hr in the final "Thunderbird Corner". Summer bobsleigh runs seven days a week, rain or shine, so it’s the perfect addition to your time in Whistler.
