Check out the World cup Test Event Bobsleigh & Skeleton Competition at Whistler.
One hundred and one million dollar Whistler Sliding Centre is now open. The course is 1.45 kilometres in length with an elevation change of 150 metres.
Sliders can expect to experience roughly 5.02 Gs of G-force pressure (measure of gravity) in the corners, which is more than astronauts experience on a space shuttle launch.
The men's and women's skeleton events will take place on Thursday, Feb. 5, with the women racing at 3 p.m. and the men racing under the lights at 7 p.m. The women's bobsleigh is at 1 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 6, followed by the men's two-man bobsleigh at 5 p.m. The four-man bobsleigh is at 4 p.m. on Saturday.
