Olympic Sports Complex

home of the combined bobsled, luge & skeleton track


As you visit the Olympic Sites this summer you may notice a lot of busy workers and areas closed off to our guests, but rest assured, these inconveniences will be worth it. We are modernizing facilities and adding new activities that will rival our winter bounty of thrills and excitement. Visitors may view the ski jumps from the Intervales Lodge at no charge. View some of the new construction projects that we are very excited about below!

Mountain Coaster

A roller coaster-like ride where the passenger controls the speed will allow guests to experience the 1980 Olympic Track in its entirety for the first time in over 20 years. Guests will speed through the world famous Shady Curve, Zig and Zag in their custom designed bobsled cart before gliding across the finish line with a winning time.

Combined Lodge

Guests looking to enjoy all the exciting activities at Mt Van Hoevenberg will have a new home base in October of 2020. All trails will lead to the new combined lodge housing all the amenities guests will need to enjoy a full day on the mountain, including, a rock climbing wall, café, retail shop, showers, locker room, wax rooms and a 500 ft long refrigerated Start Track guaranteed to make our Bobsled and Skeleton athletes the best in the world. See you in 2020!

New Biathlon Stadium and 4km Trails

A world class Biathlon and Cross Country venue surrounded by world class recreation ski trails has long been the goal of Mt Van Hoevenberg and this summer it becomes a reality. A state of the art Biathlon range and 4 km of world class race ready trails with full snowmaking capabilities will join the 50 km of spectacular recreation trails created for the 1980 Olympics.

Visitors can still enjoy Discover Biathlon program and Cross Country Mountain Biking at the Biathlon Center, located just past the entrance to the Olympic Sports Complex on your right.

The combined track typically holds ice from October to May and is host to numerous training events and international competitions throughout the winter. On most days you can catch a glimpse of bobsled, luge or skeleton athletes speeding through the curves at 70+ miles per hour. You can also explore the sliding center on foot with a walk through the International Sliding Sports Museum.
