Description: Whistler Olympic Park has a history of glory and gold. One-third of all...
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.

I can't say it's worth the initial ~$120 million dollar construction cost, or the additional $110 million dollar endowment fund, but it's a nice place to visit. The short drive to the Whistler Olympic Park is a quiet 15 minute journey off Highway 99. I came to see the infrastructure, the Callaghan Valley area, and specifically to play target practice...

As others have stated, it costs $5 to gain entrance. For that, you get to drive around and see a couple of downhill ski runs and a biathlon area. You can also pay a little extra to do some target practice using the same targets and rifles supposedly identical to the ones used in Olympic matches. A good destination for... More

The location is quite a distance from highway. Also surprised at the $5 parking fee. No one was there! Parking is on gravel. Took pictures of the ski jump, the stone monument of the Olympic 2010 symbol and the Olympic Rings. Not much else is there.

Thank you very much for your review! The $5 entrance fee per carload helps us as a not-for-profit organization to maintain our facility and trails for sport use. Both in summer and especially in winter, Whistler Olympic Park is used as a high performance training facility for the Nordic ski disciplines, and also recreational users can enjoy our extensive cross-country...

There is a $5/car fee to enter. It was cool to see the ski jump areas even though we were there in the summer. The real reason we were there was to try the rifle shooting where they held the biathlon competition. You shoot the rifle laying on your stomach at the actual targets the competitors use.

It was a nice 30 minute drive from the Whistler Village area. On route we stopped at Alexander Falls. The entrance fee is $5 per vehicle for the visit to this park and it was worth it. Our first stop was the ski jump area followed by the nearby Inukshuk where you can take some nice photos. After this we... More

Up until visiting Whistler earlier this month, Victoria was my favorite Canadian town. Now they boy share the top 2 on my list (Calgary been on a close 3rd place). What a nice and charming small town. It is worth to visit the Olympic Park and walk along the upper and downtown village. Great place. Next time instead of staying... More

The Olympic Park was the site in the 201 Winter Olympics of the ski jumping, cross country, and pentathlon events. The actual village was in Whistler proper. But if you like to see these sorts of things, there are a couple of things you can do. We saw some people on the cross country trails on skis with roller skates.... More

It was only $5 for the carload to get in so it was not bad. It was interesting to see the Olympic rings still up, the downhill ski ramps and the statue at the entrance. They had shooting instruction going on, but other than that, there was not much else. I guess it is a work in progress.

For $5 per car (or free by foot/bike) you can enter Whistler Olympic Park. It was a quick drive, but really worthwhile to see the set up from the Vancouver Olympics. The coolest or me was the ski as it's terrifyingly steep! Upon entry, we were given a $5 off coupon for the biathalon range, which was a super fun... More
