Canadian Bobsleigh Championships

Made Explore :) Thanks! The Whistler Sliding Centre is a bobsleigh, luge, and skeleton track 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, one of two ski mountains forming the Whistler Blackcomb resort, this venue will host the bobsleigh, luge, and skeleton competitions for the 2010 Winter Olympics which are being co-hosted by Vancouver and the Resort Municipality of Whistler. 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 153.98 km/h (95.68 mph).
