Discover Luge (for ages 8-14)

The Whistler Sliding Centre in partnership with the B.C. Luge Association are offering the opportunity for youth to try out the Olympic winter sport of Luge by sliding down the track on their own sled!

In this 2 hour session, athletes will receive an introduction to the sport of Luge and its equipment. Participants will receive a safety orientation and instructions prior to heading outside for an on-ice sliding session to build familiarity with the sport. Sliding will start at Curve 13 and run through the final 4 corners of the Olympic track. Athletes will receive coaching and be supervised to ensure safety while at the venue. Parents are welcome to participate with their child in this activity.
