WHISTLER SLIDING CENTRE
The Whistler Sliding Centre will host the Bobsleigh, Luge and Skeleton competitions at the 2010 Winter Games Olympics in Vancouver, Canada. The track is located in the Fitzsimmons Creek valley in Whistler, British Columbia, Canada located 125 km north of Vancouver. Located on the lowermost slopes of Blackcomb Mountain, this one of two ski mountains forming the Whistler Blackcomb resort. Yes, that’s right, resort! This venue will not only cater to fans enjoyment during a heated competition during the 2010 Winter Games, but it will also serve as a legacy for the enjoyment of local residents, visitors and high-performance athletes. The venue is situated in the Village of the resort of Whistler, complementing the other adventure-oriented activities the area offers.
Don’t wait too long though, because if you miss out on 2010 Olympic Winter Game tickets, you might never be able to see these beautiful slopes at their finest. Trying to build a legacy off the 2010 Winter Games, the facility will operate as a center for high-performance development, youth and recreational club programming, and tourist and public admissions (passenger rides and tours) after the Olympics come to an end this winter.
The Whistler Sliding Centre is not for the faint of heart — this track is faster than any other in the world, reflecting the terrain and environment of its location. From the moment an athlete first moves down the track, they feel the power of the course. It starts fast and gets faster, and harder. On February 21, 2009 during the 2008-09 Luge World Cup season finale, the track had the fastest registered speed in luge when Germany’s Felix Loch recorded 95.68 mph (153.98 km/h).
