Getting to Whistler Sliding Centre

There is NO parking available on site. The best way to access the Whistler Sliding Centre is via the Excalibur Gondola. Spectators can take the gondola from Whistler Village (until 6 PM and free to ride without ski/snowboard equipment) to mid-station and continue from there on foot (10-minute walk). The Whistler Sliding Centre can also be accessed via Whistler Transit bus to Staff Housing – Route 7, followed by a short walk to the venue.

Parking lots 7 and 8 are available for free parking (upon availability only). Please note that at this time of year, these lots are very full and we encourage spectators to make use of the Excalibur Gondola and BC Transit.
