Baseboarding

Experience the newest winter thrill at Whistler Olympic Park: North America’s first Bromley Baseboarding program and newest winter thrill. Like a hybrid of the sport of skeleton, bodyboarding on snow, and old fashioned tobogganing, riders point their bodies down a slope on aerodynamic boards designed for total excitement and fun. No prior experience is necessary. Just let gravity do its thing!

+++ Baseboarding will be available again in the 2017/2018 winter season (opening day November 23, 2017) +++
