After the IBSF North American Cup (NAC) brought all sorts of bobsled and skeleton action to Whistler last week, the Olympic legacy Sliding Centre now turns its attention to luge.

Training has been underway all week for the FIL Junior Luge World Cup. Saturday will see the women drop in at 9:30 a.m., followed by doubles at 1:00 p.m. Then Sunday features the men's race at 9:30 a.m. and the team event at 1:00 p.m. 

Spectating is free for all sessions.

Meanwhile, youngsters aged eight to 14 who are interested in trying out luge can attend the next Discover Luge program on Sunday at 2 p.m., where they will receive professional instruction in a safe and controlled environment. More information is available here.
