Whistler Olympic Park has a history of glory and gold. One-third of all medals at the Vancouver 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games were awarded at the venue. Today, it remains an active centre for world-class competitors while preserving the winter legacy for the enjoyment of the Sea to Sky community and visitors. In addition to exploring 130 kilometers of picturesque ski and snowshoe trails, we offer biathlon, ski jumping, tobogganing and baseboarding. Whistler Olympic Park is the perfect place for family fun in the summer too! From June 27 until September 6, the 2010 Olympic Winter Games legacy venue will be open for visitors to try a variety of activities to discover the sport landmarks and the Park's spectacular landscape in the Callaghan Valley. Operation hours are 10:00am until 4:30pm daily. Park access is $5 per carload, the proceeds will be used to support sport programming in the winter.

They've done a really nice job in the Callaghan Valley with the Whistler Olympic Park. We went up for the day to try out skate skiing. They offer a Discover Skate Skiing program which includes rental and lesson for only $60 (you also have to buy a ticket to the park -- $22.50 online). The rental facility is largely run... More

Spent the day snowshoeing....very nice trails. Gorgeous scenery. Take the trail to Alexander Falls which are very large and mostly frozen with water spilling over the frozen bits...very beautiful. Watch Nordic biathlon skiers train and shoot and see the location where the Vancouver 2010 Olympics were held.

If you enjoy hiking, this is like hiking on steroids. and with no experience required. The Olympic Park has cheap rentals and a day use fee to snowshoe on their vast property. They have carved a lawnmower width sized track through the snow, forests, over brooks, and up and down hills. You can choose easy (flat), intermediate (few hills) and... More

Hi Bronzeroof, Thanks for the rave review! You can thank our amazing patrol team for the "lawnmower width sized track" on the trails - they stomp out every kilometer for our guests..what a workout after a heavy snowfall! We hope you come back soon. Cheers! More

We were only able to stop in for a couple hours, but we had lots of fun! Parking was easy and close by attractions. Didn't make it up to see the rings, sad that we missed out on that. We were distracted by the sledding, which was fun for all ages. Sleds/toboggans free to borrow and there are many around... More

Reserved bikes but the reservation hadn't been made properly, the staff member Shannon was pretty rude and unhelpful. She also gave us wrong information about which trails were open. Was met by Damien in the rental section, was given an Alan key to adjust the seat myself but the seat clap bolt was all rounded so it couldn't tighten properly.... More

The long drive to Whistler was scenic. From afar, the snow-capped mountains looked majestic (and the snow covered trees are marvelous when you get finally to Whistler). The park is ideal area to bond with family and friends. Walking distance to the parking lot. Has food and restroom facilities. Can take a few minutes to get photos with the Olympic... More

The rings are very touristy and it can be hard to get a photo. The whole area is very lovely, and the whistler mountains make for a great picture from any direction.

There is not much to see in the park any more. the only thing open is the biathlon gun range. It's a cheap thrill to shoot off a round of targets for $10, there is the sky jump and the Olympic Rings to photograph but that's about it. I am told you can hike up to the top of the... More
