All sliding events -- bobsled, luge and skeleton -- will take place at the Yanqing National Sliding Centre on the Xiaohaituo Bobsled and Luge Track – also known as "The Flying Snow Dragon." The venue is located about 74 kilometers northwest of Beijing, in the Xiaohaituo mountain area in Yanqing.
The competition length of the track is 1615 meters, with a maximum gradient of 18% and 16 curves --including a 360-degree turn.
The Sliding Centre has a seating capacity of 2,000 and a standing capacity of 8,000.
Referred to as "The Dragon's tail," curves 12 and 13 feature particularly sharp turns and elevation gain.
Many athletes have had trouble while entering curve 13 on the Yanqing National Sliding Centre's track.
