Here's your chance to follow in the ice tracks of bob skeleton British Olympic Gold Medal-winner, Amy Williams, when you book one of the new winter packages from the Kulm Hotel in the glamorous Swiss resort of St Moritz.

Available on limited dates only, the adrenaline-fuelled breaks include the chance to ride the historic Cresta Run (men only, I'm afraid) and the opportunity to take a Bob Taxi Ride with a skilled driver down the Olympia Bob Run, where you might rub shoulders with European and World Championship contenders.

Whichever you opt for, nerves of steel are compulsory – you'll reach speeds of up to 135kph and will take some of the most treacherous curves in the only natural ice run in the world.

Packages include half-board accommodation at the Kulm Hotel, Cresta Run or Bob Taxi training or rides and hydrotherapy sea salt baths to ease aching limbs.

And you'll be staying in the birthplace of snowsport tourism. The historic Kulm Hotel was opened in 1856 by Johannes Badrutt, who enticed the first – mainly British – tourists to St Moritz with his winter season holidays.

The Kulm Hotel Need for Speed packages start from £615 per person, based on two sharing.
