This just released from Whistler Olympic Park, they have partnered with Bromley Sports to provide guests with an exciting snow activity that is new to North America: Baseboarding. During Spring Break 2014, guests will have the opportunity to experience the new adrenaline sport, which is best described as bodyboarding on snow, where participants slide down a groomed run on a specifically designed board.
The Bromley Baseboard has been developed by four-time Olympian, British skeleton racer and sled manufacturer Kristan Bromley. The patented board design provides optimal ride dynamics with a low profile that keeps the rider close to the snow with a low centre of gravity. Boards have a curved base design and parallel runners that allow for a highly maneuverable board that creates an intuitive riding experience. The Baseboard Experience takes place on a 600m long slope that starts near the top of the ski jumps. It is suitable for everybody over the age of eight and no prior sliding experience is necessary.
The Bromley Baseboard Experience will be offered daily from March 15th to 30th, 2014. Pre-booking is recommended by calling 604-964-0060 x 2460. Baseboarding times are for one hour starting at 9:30am. The cost, including Baseboard rental is $25 per adult and $20 per youth (8-18yrs). Sea to Sky residents receives a 20% discount with proof of residency so bring out your friends and family and come out and try this new sport!
