OUR LOCAL FAQ "INSIDER" Francis Chiasson is proof that though Whistler may be the number one ski resort in North America, there’s a lot more to this place than skiing and riding.

Just look at the Olympic track that Chiasson now calls home. He rides down it purely for fun. And you can too.

Whistler Sport Legacies, the non-profit that operates Whistler Olympic venues, offers public tours on the track on the bobsleigh and skeleton, the former called ‘Thunder on Ice’ in a four-man bobsleigh, the latter ‘Thunder on Ice’ head-first down the track on a skeleton.

Those are just some of the many different kinds of activities you can do in Whistler.

Like the bobsleigh and skeleton rides on the fastest sliding track in the world, there are many other one-of-a-kind, unique Whistler activities.

Take the PEAK 2 PEAK Gondola for example. Whether you’re using it for skiing or sightseeing, the world records remain. It is has the longest free span between towers in the world and the highest point above ground.

Even without world records to recommend them, there’s still bungee jumping over Cheakamus River, ziplining through the forest, dogsledding and snowmobiling and tubing and skating. Or maybe it’s snowshoeing, hiking or sightseeing that piques your interest for your mellower ride?

There’s a reason why SKI Magazine readers ranked Whistler as the number one ski resort for off-hill activities for 2015/16.
