All sliding events -- luge, bobsled and skeleton -- will take place at the Yanqing National Sliding Centre on the highly technical and tricky Xiaohaituo Bobsled and Luge Track, nicknamed "The 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.
